Do you support other payment gateways other than Stripe/PayPal?

At this time, only Stripe and/or PayPal are supported but we are looking to support more payment gateways in the future!

Can I use external checkouts with Podia?

Yes! You should be able to integrate with external checkouts via Zapier.

We offer an integration with Zapier, which is a tool that helps automate processes between platforms so you could use an alternative system for your purchases and have the customer information sent directly to Podia, which would in turn give them access to the correct products!

Do you support bank transfers as a payment option?

We don't support bank transfers as payment options. However, you could accept these transfers externally and manually enroll customers into the correct products!
