The first step in setting up PHP POS for credit card processing with Stripe is to apply for an account on their website. After signup up for an account you will then need to get 2 pieces of information that needs to be put in PHP POS. Both of these values can be obtained by logging into Stripe's dashboard and clicking Account Settings --> API Keys
Live Secret Key
Live Publishable Key
Copy these 2 values down and then you are ready to configure PHP Point Of Sale.
Now you can login to PHP POS and click the "Locations Module". You can then click edit for the location(s) you want to setup processing for. Scroll down and check the box "Enable Credit Card Processing". Then choose Credit Card Processor as Stripe and paste in the value from previous step.
You will also need to put in your currency code. Currency codes can be obtained at the bottom of the document at https://support.stripe.com/questions/which-currencies-does-stripe-support. An example currency code is USD.
Now you are ready to process cards with Stripe. You would just need to use the credit card payment type and hook up your swiper and it will be very easy to process cards.
You are now ready to process credit card transactions!
