I wanted to use both Stripe + Paypal both together user can either choose stripe or Pypal for payment. Bascially I required 2 payment method together.

Ghost’s native payment system is Stripe.

You can use PayPal as an alternative or in addition to Stripe, but it requires additional work to get it up and running. PayPal’s experience won’t be as integrated or seamless as using Stripe: Accepting member's payments using PayPal

Hello Ryan, has this recently changed with the additional payment methods beta? I am showing that PayPal is a new option according to this page on Ghost website.

If so, all of us just got a massive boost in revenue potential and I will be so stoked If this is the case.

With the payment methods beta it should be possible to take PayPal payments through Stripe.

It does look like you’ll need to request recurring payments to be enabled on your account which will take a few days

Please give it a go and let us know how it works out! :slight_smile:


Hello Kevin, so I am having issues. Unfortunately, us US based businesses do not have these abilities with PayPal. Here is part of my conversation with a Stripe Support Agent where they disclosed this to me as to why I was not seeing the PayPal option as a payment option for the portal to be able to be turned on. Hopefully they will change these restrictions soon, but just wanted to let you know incase someone else finds this issue and is unsure why they don’t see the option. Thanks for trying to get us more payment options however, seems it’s just stripe not allowing us US based customers.

Something those who are more tech savvy could do, just an idea I had would be to somehow implement a PayPal option by providing links where most people put their terms & conditions links in the portal. How you all allow us to add text & a URL in the portal at sign up, one could find a way to do it there but I wouldn’t want to deal with the hassle of needing to use a 3rd party like Zapier to manage all of that.


Hi Kevin, I am in the UK and have activated PayPal and been approved for recurring payments but there is still no option to use PayPal at the checkout. I’m just seeing ApplePay and card options still. Is there anything else I need to do to get this working. Cheers
UPDATE: I may need to configure domain for PayPal which I will try shortly, however I did not do this for ApplePay and seems to work currently?
