Create a Stripe Account

For more information on creating your Stripe account, check out their very handy and easy to understand Help File or to find out if Stripe is available in your country.

Once you've got your Stripe account ready to roll, simply go to Organisation Settings / Payment Settings and select Stripe Payments.

From here, just click the big blue "Connect with Stripe" button and you're redirected to the Stripe site to finalise the connection.

If you've already got a Stripe account set up, then use the "Already have a Stripe Account? Login" link at the top right of the page.
