You can find an example of the new checkout flow on the X-Moon game page, click Download Now, then Credit Card.
Today itch.io is releasing its third payment provider: Stripe. Stripe lets a buyer pay with credit card directly from itch.io without the need for any additional accounts (opposed to PayPal or Amazon Payments). Stripe’s transaction fee is $0.30 + 2.9%, the same as PayPal and Amazon and it is available in the United States, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.
In order to use Stripe you can find the “Link to Stripe” button in the Payments section of the User Settings page. The button will guide you through creating a Stripe account if you don’t already have one.
You might also notice the Payment section has been updated to include summaries of all the providers with their rates and where they are available. Hopefully this should make it simple to choose the ones that are right for you.
A note about security: itch.io’s servers never hold or even see any credit card information used to checkout with Stripe. All confidential data is sent directly to Stripe from your browser session.
The FAQ has been updated to reflect addition of Stripe.
