Link unlocks the power of one-click payments built directly into your checkout flow. With Link, your customers can securely save and reuse payment information for a faster checkout at the thousands of online businesses that have Link enabled. Customers that use Link check out four times faster and transact four times more frequently.
For Stripe Checkout users, Link is already enabled on your site with no additional fees or integration work required. You can turn Link off in the Checkout settings in your Dashboard if you don’t want to offer it to your customers.
For Stripe Elements users, Link is available to all users for both Web and Mobile (currently iOS only). If you'd like to participate in the Android private beta, please reach out via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can determine if your business is eligible.
How can I accept Link?
You can accept Link through our new Elements, or through Stripe Checkout.
New Elements resources for integrating
Checkout resource for integrating
Integrating Link is no additional work. In fact, it is automatically turned on, which can be controlled via a toggle in the dashboard settings.
How much does it cost?
Link pricing is the exact same as card sticker pricing.
Does it work with recurring payments?
Yes, Link works with recurring payments.
For users on subscriptions
You’ll need to create the subscription with
payment_behavior=default_incomplete, and send the resulting PaymentIntent to the Payment Element, which activates the subscription when the PaymentIntent is paid.
You can follow the general integration guide.
For users on saved payment methods
You can read more about saving and reusing payment information.
Is Link supported in my country or currency?
For new Elements and the Mobile Payment Element
Your account must be in the US, and you must present in USD.
The location of the end customer can be anywhere as long as the above is true.
Link is supported anywhere Cards are supported, and in any presentment currencies that are also supported.
How do disputes work with Link?
Disputes work the exact same way as they do for cards.
Does Link work with any other payment methods besides Cards?
Currently Link only works with credit and debit cards. To give your customers more payment options at checkout, Stripe is working to add additional funding sources (like bank accounts) to Link in 2022.
Instructions to test the integration of any available funding source can be found in the integration guide.
Can I use Link without Checkout or new Elements?
No. We hope to expand Link beyond these payment UIs, but for the time being, these three are available.
