Configuring your first Payment Gateway

Video Guide

We have produced a video guide covering configuring your first payment gateway.

Scroll down to read the illustrated guide below.

Payment Gateways are the means by which customers pay you for services, so are a crucial step to setting up every instance of WHMCS. Let's get started.

First, navigate to Setup > Payments >Payment Gateways

WHMCS is compatible with several dozen gateways out of the box, so there should be one which meets your business requirements.  A complete list of the supported gateways can be found here.

Once on the Payment Gateways page, choose All Payment Gateways to view the full list.

On the page listing all of the available Payment Gateways, click on the desired gateway.

For this example, we will be choosing the Stripe Gateway.

Upon choosing your desired gateway, you will be presented with the configuration form for the gateway.

In our case, we will input the data retrieved from the Stripe console, however each gateway will ask for different information. For a full description of what each gateway will require to complete configuration, please reference the Supported Gateways list.

Click Save Changes

Your WHMCS install is now ready to accept payments!


WHMCS does not limit how many or how few gateways you can activate, allowing clients to choose their preferred payment method. Repeat this process for each additional gateway you wish to configure.

Now you're ready to get selling, the next page is the last step in this guide:
