Stripe Connect offers a more secure and enhanced experience for your customers. Stripe Connect also includes 3D Secure and Capture on Shipment functionality. Sign-up is simple and can be completed within your platform.

NOTE: Please be aware that 0.00 initial transactions are not supported when using Stripe gateway. If using Stripe, the initial order MUST have a valid amount.

3D Secure Setup is Automatic

Stripe Connect dynamically uses 3D Secure with every merchant account. You do not need to sign up for it or add it anywhere in the setup. Stripe Connect will send any payment that qualifies to 3D Secure. On your frontend website, you need to be able to handle the redirect URL as well as a gateway response. Please make sure that you implement the API 3DS call, found here.

For more information on the 3D Secure redirect URL, please refer to the documentation at

Points to be Aware of Regarding 3DS

  • With Stripe Connect, 3D Secure 2.0 is automatically enabled.

  • 3Dredirect URL (three_d_redirect_url) is essential to be submitted with the New Order request. This will allow the consumer to redirect to the merchant's Thank You page, after the 3D authentication process.

  • 3D Secure is dynamic to each transaction and the processing bank determines if 3D Secure is needed on each transaction.

  • If 3DS is not needed, the transaction will process and we will return the OrderID and TransID in API response.

  • If 3DS is needed for the transaction, Stripe will return to us the ACS URL, and you will receive a 101 response code indicating that you need to submit the 3DS call with the order Id in it to finalize the sale.

  • Once transaction is verified, the consumer is redirected to the 3Dredirect URL (Thank You) that was provided in NewOrder request.

  • There are certain circumstances where the bank will require 3DS on the rebill transaction. This is outside of's control.

Enabling Apple Pay / Google Pay

The Stripe integration also supports the use of mobile payment types such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Subscription transactions are supported with Apple Pay and Google Pay, but your merchant account with Stripe needs to be configured to accept rebills.

Referring to the Stripe website:

"You can start accepting Apple / Google Pay payments on the web using Checkout or Elements. No additional configuration is required to use Apple Pay in Checkout. For Elements, refer to the Payment Request Button documentation provided by Stripe to learn how to add Apple Pay to your site."

You can also find Apple Pay best practices for the integration here. Based on the web browser being used by the customer, the respective Apple Pay / Google Pay button will be shown (depicted below):
