Issuu has a partnership with Stripe, a leading online payment platform, so publishers can charge for their publications and collect credit and debit card payments from their readers.
Our selling publishers can collect the payments from Issuu readers only via Stripe.
There are currently 34 supported countries by Stripe at this time. Click here to see a list of supported countries by Stripe.
NOTE: Digital Sales is currently not available for Indian publishers. If you are based in India and you want to sell your content, then even though you have an Indian Stripe account, it won't be possible to connect it under Digital Sales to sell on Issuu.
Connecting Your Issuu Account to Stripe
- When you set up your first publication for sale, you need to connect an existing Stripe account or create a new one for free
- You will be notified to set up the payments on several occasions while preparing your publication for sale (see the screenshot above and below)
- If you already have a Stripe account, enter the existing Stripe email. If not, enter the email you would like to use and we will create Stripe account for you
NOTE: Before you can start accepting live payments, you need to confirm your Stripe email address. Stripe will send you a verification email. All you need to do is to verify the set up by clicking Confirm email address in the body of the email.
We also suggest to check your Stripe account dashboard becaused there might be some details about your business that are missing and that you need to submit.
If required, please contact Stripe support to learn why is your Stripe account disabled: https://support.stripe.com
Change Stripe Account
If you need to change the Stripe email address connected to your Issuu account, please contact our support. We will be happy to disconnect the Stripe account on our end and let you choose a new one.
When a reader buys your magazines, the payment is posted directly in your Stripe account, which you can then transfer to your bank account manually or automatically. See the Stripe website for more information on payouts.
Stripe fees depend on geography and method of payment. For more information on Stripe fees, go to https://stripe.com/pricing and make sure you are on the correct country version of the Stripe website (can be seen in their footer).
Stripe fees are generally structured with a flat fee of 20-30 cents, plus a percentage for the sale, usually under 3%.
