From your Stripe Dashboard ( Click on ‘Developers’ at the top-right of your screen. Important make sure the toggle switch for test/live mode that you’ll see alongside ‘Developers’ is not selected.This means you will be viewing your Live configuration which is what we need.

After clicking ‘ Developers’ on the next page click on ‘API keys‘ which will reveal your full Publishable key. This can be copied and pasted.

We also need your Secret Key to complete the connection. If you already have a secret key setup it won’t be possible to copy this – you will need to create a new key by clicking on the ‘Create secret key’ button.
