We cannot use Stripe processing because we are in the cannabis industry and DUDA only seems to work with that in these modules.
Are you using trying to use Memberships or setting up the subscription through ecommerce?
Subscription through ecomm but only allows PayPal or Stripe for the embedded service within the catalog and product setup.
This is not possible within the ECWID ecommerce option within Duda.. You may want to wait and see what the new Duda Company SNIPCART will offer.
+1 on @Aj_Pfeil's comment.
Adding the ecommerce tag to this post so the right product team gets this feedback!
Hey folks, our upcoming Duda eComm native solution, which will indeed be powered by a happy mix of existing Snipcart technology and core Duda development, will support Square. If everything goes according to plan, both eComm subscriptions + Square payment gateway support should be in before 2023!
Good to know Square is more open to alternative products like cannabis, it can be a real hassle finding a payment gateway for merchants in non-traditional industries.
Duda University says the platform can connect to Square. Please let me know what I've missed. I built a new site for a client and she doesn't want to change processors.
Hi, Square is available as a payment method in the store, but it is not available as a way to pay for subscriptions through the store. Payments for subscriptions must go through Stripe.
For example, someone could purchase a product from your online store and use Square to checkout. But if they want to enroll in a subscription they would have to checkout through Stripe. Does that help?
So am I charged the same for ecommerce regardless if I have the Stripe functionality or not?
Hi there, @JJN22!
It's totally possible for you to sell products on a Duda site without directly using Duda's native eCommerce store. As an example, let's say that you only sell 1 item, for 1 set price. It's easy to just setup a single page for that item, and get a 'buy now' button from an online payment gateway (which you can place on your page using an HTML widget). You don't need a full-blown "online store" for that.
Same thing in the case where you only have 1 subscription product: it might be easier to simply setup a single page, allowing the customer to select the subscription level they want, and then give them a widget.
Duda's built-in store gives you extra functionality, which goes beyond merely integrating a payment gateway into the website. It allows you to have a catalog, shopping cart, and provide paywalled pages to your subscribers/members. If you don't need these features, then you can setup your site without using the eCommerce add-on - and use whatever payment gateway works best for you.
Yes, that is correct. Although, Stripe does collect their own fees on transactions. So if you decide to use Stripe I recommend you check out their documentation to learn about any additonal fees that may be collected:
