Difference between stripe single and subscription gateways

I noticed in Membership Pro 2 / payments / stripe gateways - there are two sections. What is/are the difference/s between the single gateway and the subscription gateway?

    Hi Anthony ,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    The difference resides in recurring or one-time payments.

    1) Stripe Single Gateway

    It's used to one-time payments, when the user pays one time only to have a permanent/finite/date range access to the membership.

    2) Stripe Subscriptions Gateway

    Best used for recurring payments, when users pays every day/week/month/year to have access to a membership.

    I hope this information has been helpful. If I can help you in this or other questions, please let me know!

    Cheers, Luís

    Almost.

    I understand the difference between recurring and one-time payments - but when it's asking for the api keys, as far as stripe is concerned, it's the same set of keys. Unless I'm missing something in stripe that allows the creating separate set of keys.

    I have multiple stripe accounts for different businesses but each only has a set of test and live keys.

    Are we to use the same keys?

      Yup, you'd want to use the same set of keys here.
