        5. Now, click Edit to the right of Stripe. Scroll down to Presentation Settings. Set the following:

  • Payment Method Title - This is set to 'Stripe' by default. This is what your customers will see when making a payment. You might want to change it to 'Credit Card Payment' or something similar to avoid confusion.
  • Priority - If more than one Payment Gateway is set up in your cart, priority determines how they are sorted.
  • Checkout Page Instructions - This is what your customers will see after checking out the orders.
  • Thank You Page Instructions - This is what your customers will see when the order is completed.
