Supported Payment Methods

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Discover
  • American Express
  • ACH/bank transfer (only supports USD)

Connect to Stripe

In order to connect to the Stripe payment gateway for credit card and/or ACH payments, you will need your Stripe Secret Key. You can find this by logging in to Stripe, and going to Developers from your dashboard.


The Secret Key should always start with either sk_live_ or sk_test_.

Once you have obtained your Stripe Secret Key, you can go back to ChargeOver to get the two connected.


If you are testing, you should use the Test Secret Key. And if you are charging real payments, you should use the Live Secret Key.

In ChargeOver

  1. Go to your Settings and select Payment Processing

  2. Select Add or Configure a Payment Method or Merchant Account

  1. Choose Stripe from the choices

  2. Enter in your Stripe Secret Key

  1. Scroll to the next section and designate which payment types you accept (Visa, Mastercard, etc.)

Be aware that if you accept ACH payments through Stripe, you customers will need to complete the micro-verification process before their ACH/echeck account can be used to take payments.

  1. Click Save Settings when finished

Stripe's Restricted API Keys

ChargeOver will work with standard, or with restricted keys.

For restricted keys, you will want to make sure ChargeOver can read or write the following.

  • Charges
  • Customers
  • Tokens
  • Disputes
  • Balance

Stripe ACH Micro-Deposit Verification Process

Before you can accept ACH payments from a customer through the Stripe payment gateway, Stripe requires that their bank account be verified.

ChargeOver can help you with the process of getting a customer's bank account verified through micro-deposits, so that it can be used as the customer's payment method for future invoices.

In ChargeOver

  1. Send your customer an email with a link to update their payment method

  2. The link will bring your customer to a page like the one below. Click the Add a New Bank Account option

  1. Next, all of the customer's ACH account information will need to be filled in and saved

  1. Once the ACH information has been saved, ChargeOver will display customer facing and user facing messages indicating that the customer's bank account has not been verified yet

  1. ChargeOver will automatically send your customer an email telling them to check their bank account for the micro-deposits used for bank account verification
  • Make sure that you have an email address for the customer on file in your ChargeOver account
  • The email ChargeOver sends will also contain a link that the customer should go to once they see the deposits in their account

  1. When the customer follows the link in the email, they will be asked to input the amount of the two micro-deposits they see in their bank account and click Verify

  1. Once the customer has successfully verified their bank account, a message will display

Once this process has been completed, the customer's verified bank account can be used towards paying their future invoices through the Stripe payment gateway.

Dynamic Statement Descriptors

Statement descriptors explain charges or payments on your customers bank statements. Using clear and accurate statement descriptors can reduce chargebacks and disputes. Read more about Stripe's support for statement descriptors.

If you want your customers bank statements to reflect your invoice number or the name of the product purchased, you can use merge tags to push this information to their bank statements.

In Stripe, set your shortened prefix:

In ChargeOver, set the same shortened prefix, and the dynamic component:

These merge tags are available for use in the dynamic component only:

Merge tagDescription
{{invoice.refnumber}}The invoice number being paid for
{{}}The customer name
{{line.item_name}}The product name of the first invoice line item
{{line.descrip}}The description of the first invoice line item
