You will now be taken through several steps to verify that you are the business owner; providing all the details that you enter are correct the approval should be almost instantaneous.

Obtain your API keys

To accept payment online using Stripe you will need to provide Silkmoth with your API so that Stripe can be linked to your website.

In your Dashboard click on the Developers link in the top right hand corner.

You then need to select API keys from menu of the left

The API Keys page will now display a section like the below

Click the Reveal live key button; you will be presented with this message:

Copy the Publishable key and Secret key (after clicking Reveal live key) and send them to support@silkmoth.com.

Once you have sent the keys to the Silkmoth support team, Stripe will then be ready to use on your website
