Build Landing Pages That Accept Payments With Our Gatsby + MoonClerk Starters
June 8, 2020
A Modern Flexible Developer Experience
If you’re a developer you know modern websites need to be fast, flexible, SEO-optimized, and easy to maintain. With this expanding list of requirements, modern tools are rising to the challenge by creating modular and flexible toolsets that easily work together. Gatsby, Netlify, Stripe, and MoonClerk are just a few of these tools. Using them together allows you to quickly create and scale lightning fast websites that are deployed to a global CDN and accept one time and recurring payments.
Gatsby is an open source React framework that helps you build lightning fast websites that can pull data from anywhere, all wrapped in a modern tech stack leaving you without the headache of setting up your own.
- Content Mesh – Bring your own data from multiple sources together in one place with consistency.
- SEO Optimization – Fast and efficient for search engine crawlers
- Performance – Prebuilt pages, pre-fetching links,image optimization, and a React core
- Developer Ecosystem – A large ecosystem of open-source tools and plugins
Accepting payments online can be a challenging and time consuming process that often requires extensive development knowledge and a decent budget. Moonclerk let’s you create completely customizable forms that can be embedded or shared anywhere. You can also automate and integrate your business processes with built-in tools and 3rd party integrations.
- Secure payment processing through Stripe
- Integrate with hundreds of third party providers
- Take granular control of your payment process
- Style the entire checkout process to match your brand
- Power up your account with extensions like Digital Delivery, Paid Newsletters with Mailchimp, and Crowdfunding Campaigns.
Gatsby sites are static and thus don’t need complex servers that require maintenance and management. Netlify steps in to help you run web projects at a global scale without servers, dev-ops, or costly infrastructure.
