Easy Stripe Affiliate Integration with LeadDyno
It’s simple to start an affiliate program that works seamlessly with Stripe. LeadDyno has a “one-click” integration that will have everything working in just a minute or two.
We actually use Stripe for our own billing as well – so this is one of our favorite integrations! We have our own LeadDyno account hooked up with our Stripe account.
Here’s how it works…
First Things First: Readying Your Stripe Account, and Other Tips
If you don’t already have a Stripe account, don’t worry. It’s straight-forward and easy to get started with a Stripe account whilst linking it to your own bank.
Stripe markets itself toward people who are building marketplaces and online storefronts, as well as subscription services. We at LeadDyno have found that many of our users are in that exact target market, so the choice for an eCommerce vendor is ultimately pretty simple. What’s more, Stripe makes it easy for one-touch mobile phone payments, which can be great for affiliate programs.
Because Stripe makes it easy to integrate 3rd party software into their functionality, we at LeadDyno were able to incorporate easy Stripe affiliate integration into our dashboard options. And you can utilized Stripe for a few other advantages too, including:
- Fund transfer customization. That’s a fancy way of saying that you can schedule when your funds from Stripe will deposit to your bank account—you can set it to daily, weekly, etc.
- Extensive testing. You can test out just about all of Stipe’s features before officially activating your account, which gives you the advantage of working out all of the bugs before you actually ask anyone for any payment.
- Quick checkout. Stripe’s quick checkout works just as well with online order forms as it does on mobile phones, offering you and your affiliates a quick and easy way to make sales once the customer is ready.
So if you do already have a Stripe account, that’s all the better—the “one-click” setup will go as smoothly as advertised, as long as you get all of the steps right.
Before You Integrate Stripe: A Few Quick Things
Yes, we know we promised a “one-click solution.” And really, it is that easy. But if you want to make things even easier on yourself, it can’t hurt to make sure you’re ready to integrate before you get started.
The most important thing is to make sure that your lead tracking through LeadDyno is fully functional; this generally requires your affiliate program to be up and running before you integrate Stripe.
Why do we recommend this over on our Stripe Integration Guide? Simple: a disadvantage of Stripe is that it will only provide purchasing and cancelling information. This means your lead tracking through LeadDyno has to be working—and you need to know for certain that it’s working—before you integrate Stripe.
Don’t worry: you’ll still have lead tracking through LeadDyno, so you’ll be able to handle the regular statistics associated with affiliate programs. You just can’t run lead tracking through Stripe. Not the end of the world, of course, but consider it fair warning.
What else will you need? Of course, you’ll need a fully-activated Stripe account, so if you haven’t done so already, head over to Stripe and make sure you follow their instructions. Once you’ve linked a Stripe account to the appropriate bank account, you’re only a “one-click solution” away from full functionality with LeadDyno and Stripe. Cool, huh?
