What you need
- A bank account – this is where your funds will be deposited once payments start going through.
- A merchant account – used for routing funds from your customers’ accounts to your bank account. It is is similar to a line of credit, so you’ll need to fill out an application in order to have your Stripe account activated. Before activating your account, you can only interact with Stripe in test mode. With the exception of the ability to make a real charge to a credit card, all of Stripe’s features are available in test mode. Once you’ve activated your account, you can immediately start using the service to charge real cards.
Stripe provides the ability to send email receipts to your customers for successful payments. To turn on this feature you need to turn on customer receipts from your email settings by checking the “Email customers for: Successful payments” box. If you’re having trouble sending email receipts check this article for more detailed information.
You can add Payment icons on your registration form to show which forms of payment are supported. Please keep in mind that some of these options may only be available in select countries. The icons serve only as a visual indicator for the person making the purchase. If you are not certain which forms of payment are supported by the selected payment processor we advise checking with the processor’s official documentation.
