Recent releases of MemberMouse (since April 2023) utilize a new, streamlined process for configuring Stripe as your payment method. It is no longer necessary for you to manually copy your Stripe API keys into MemberMouse. Instead, you simply connect your Stripe account to your membermouse.com account, and the configuration is managed automatically.
If you are working with a previous version of MemberMouse, please see our article Configuring Stripe (Legacy).

After selecting your account and providing Stripe with any information it needs, you will be redirected back to your MemberMouse installation, and the Payment Settings tab will indicate that setup is complete:
