Payments

Payments are supported on the site using Stripe, our secure payment processor. Buyers can make immediate purchases on made to order or in stock items with the “buy now” button or by sending a custom payment request on the site.

Arta provides real-time quote calculations for buyers during the checkout process.

You are not required to use Arta to ship your buy-now items on Wescover. You can offer free or fixed shipping on buy-now items instead, or you can find and offer your own shipping quotes on inquiry only items.
