Payment Integration Options

Collecting fees on your site makes life easier for your players, and saves you time.

We recommend Stripe for most leagues, because it is simple to use, has no monthly fee, and lets you get the most out of League Lab's payment features. However, if you process more than $150,000/year, you will likely save money overall by using a merchant account.

There is no cost for payment integration, but it is not available for free accounts.


The best option for most leagues. Simple pricing, ease of use, and a truly painless online sign-up process that takes less than 5 minutes. Integrated into League Lab, so you can create a Stripe account starting from your Admin Panel.

Merchant Account

If you run a year-round business processing over $150,000 online, the lower transaction fees of a merchant account may save you money. If you're already taking money online, we can probably hook up your existing merchant account. If you're interested in an new account, we can walk you through the application process with our partner, Gravity Payments. Contact us if you're interested in one of these merchant account options for your account.

My organization already has Merchant Account that we're happy with, but we want to use League Lab. Can you integrate our Merchant Account, as is?

We can integrate any merchant account that includes an payment gateway with the CIM feature enabled. However, you must be a high volume league ($150k+ in annual gross revenue) in order to qualify for custom integration. Please contact us for a quote regarding this service.
