Have you ever wanted to sell an online course or membership access and accept credit cards directly on your website?

Now you can with my WordPress LMS plugin LifterLMS and the Stripe extension.

LifterLMS Stripe Extension How to sell oline courses and accept credit cardsStripe is a powerful tool for accepting credit card payments directly on your website. It seeks to provide a better user experience than Paypal and solve some of Paypal’s frustration points.
