What Is the GoHighLevel Stripe Integration?
The GoHighLevel Stripe integration allows transactions to be made within the platform.
GoHighLevel does not have a native payment gateway; therefore, integrating with Stripe is necessary if you want to charge for your GoHighLevel products and services.
To use Stripe with GoHighLevel, it is necessary to create and activate a Stripe account, and then connect it with the GoHighLevel platform (instructions included below).
How Much Does the GoHighLevel Stripe Integration Cost?
It is free to use Stripe with GoHighLevel, and it is free to set up a Stripe account. However, like all payment gateways, Stripe imposes transaction fees on all sales.
The platform has two pricing options for USA-registered cards:
- Standard: For each transaction, Stripe charges:
- 2.9% + 30¢ for domestic cards.
- 2.9% + 30¢ + 0.5% for manually entered cards.
- 2.9% + 30¢ + 1.5% for international cards.
- An additional 1% if a currency conversion is required.
- Custom: Customized transaction fees are available for large-volume and enterprise-level business.
What Can the GoHighLevel Stripe Integration Be Used for?
Processing Payments in Sub-Accounts
To process any transactions inside a GoHighLevel sub-account, you must connect with a payment gateway such as Stripe.
Examples of what you need Stripe for inside a sub-account include:
- Taking upfront payments for appointment bookings.
- Processing paid membership sites, courses, and community purchases.
- Taking subscription payments.
- Processing orders for products and services.
- Creating offers and promotions.
- Creating checkout pages in funnels.
Processing SaaS Payments
If you subscribe to the GoHighLevel Pro plan, you have the ability to brand and sell the GoHighLevel platform as SaaS (software as a service).
To create SaaS pricing plans, configure the plan features, and enable SaaS payouts from clients, you must have connected a Stripe account.
Enable Apple and Google Pay
Integrating GoHighLevel with Stripe allows Google Pay and Apple Pay options to be displayed alongside the credit card option on any order forms you create in the platform.
This gives the customer a better and more convenient choice of payment methods which increases the likelihood of them completing the transaction.
The Text2Pay feature allows you to generate and send payment links via text. Rather than sending an email or a physical invoice, Text2Pay offers a more convenient way for clients and customers to pay their bills.
Import Existing Price Plans
If you have already created price plans and products in your Stripe account, you can import them into GoHighLevel for use and editing. This feature can be used for recurring charges and subscription price plans only.
