Stripe is a payment service that allows you to accept credit cards for online transactions. Stripe is used in the Online ordering to accept Delivery and Pick-up / to-go orders.
To activate credit card processing you will need to set up a stripe account. This will be your own merchant account.
The stripe account is free, meaning there are no monthly fees. You only pay fees for successful transactions.
1. Sign-up for a free account
First, you will need to sign up for a free account.
Visit https://dashboard.stripe.com/register to register for an account. Complete your name, email and create a password.
You will receive an email to confirm it's really you. Click on the link in the email to confirm your email address.
2. Activate your account
Click "Activate your account" in the top left of the screen. This will start the approval process.
You can't process real credit cards until this approval/activation process is complete.
The following page will ask you for information about your business, address, and detailed contact information. Complete each of these fields accurately.
At the bottom of the page, you will be asked to confirm your bank account details. This is very important because, without this information, Stripe will not be able to transfer the funds to your account.
Once you have all the details on this page complete, click the "Activate Account" button at the bottom of the page.
You may or may not get a phone call from Stripe to confirm the details.
3. Add a Developer
The next step is to add a developer to the account. This needs to be done so we can help configure the account and integrate the account with the software without sharing your master login and password.
Click "Settings" in the bottom right of the menu, then select "Team members" on the top right of the next page.
Click on the New User button and add our developer account "firstname.lastname@example.org" and select "Developer" as the type of account.
It usually takes a couple of days to authorize the account. If the account can not be automatically verified, Stripe may need additional documentation, including a bank account statement or voided check. Please watch for emails from Stripe.
