Your clients can easily and conveniently pay for orders and invoices in Sprout Studio by using their credit card. Sprout Studio takes no commission on your orders. Sprout Studio integrates with Stripe, PayPal, and Square for online credit card processing, which each have their own standard fees. Here are some details for each:
- PayPal - 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction and no monthly fee. You have to manually trigger transfers to your bank account, and they typically take 3-5 days. PayPal payments are processed in PayPal, so your client is redirected to PayPal to make their payment.
- Square - 3.14% + $0.15 per transaction and no monthly fee. Transfers to your bank account are done automatically with a 1-2-day delay. Square payments are processed directly in Sprout Studio, so your client only sees the credit card form and everything is branded for you.

(You will need to collect this login/account information from your external online payment collection account.) Click "Create" and you will receive a confirmation when your credentials are validated and your accounts are linked.
Your clients can now select credit card for payment on the orders and invoices where it is enabled as an option.
