taking payments

Hi there! So, I have mailchimp as the email service on my website and am wondering if Stripe will work as a payment method with that service. The integration of the two is confusing to me. I know I shouldn’t be indulging in confusion – but I’m confused! I’m at the starting phase of my business and I see that one of your suggestions for payment is Stripe – so should I get that installed on my website before I launch? I wish there was a tech god to handle all this for me – but I’m learning. I’m learning. I can do this and I am NOT overwhelmed. 😉 It’s the “enjoying” part of tech that I’m trying to form as a new belief. I’m finding I’m stalling a lot or focusing on other areas rather than have to figure the technical aspects of it all. Thanks so much!
