Asked a question last year

Does ConvertKit only accept one form of payment? Does that mean you can't automate if you use another payment processor?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions because these two terms appear to overlap. Let's look at the differences between payment processors and payment gateways.

A payment processor is a financial institution or company that relays payments between the issuing and acquiring banks. Payment processors are used for both online and offline payments or transactions. The payment processor acts as a payment facilitator, and the role of payment processing is critical because any type of transaction can be halted without payment processors.

Hey @Dr. Chanta Booker42, I'm afraid Stripe is the only payment platform supported at this time. You can also refer to this article from our knowledgebase to get into details - ConvertKit Commerce: Setting up Payments50
