I have an online service that I would like to start charging for. I have not setup any payment system online before. I saw in the support article that you have to use Stripe, is this the only option? Also I do not have an hourly rate, instead I charge by the meeting I have. Does anyone know the best way to set this up?
I think you can only use Stripe. Setting up a Stripe account is super simple, as long as your business has a tax ID number. On second though you might be able to set things up under your name to start, but I am not 100% sure on that. Also not sure on your second question.
