Getting Started with Credit Card Payments
First, you’ll need to create a Stripe account, either through their awesome site, or through Merch, when you connect Stripe to the app. To connect to Stripe and start collecting credit card payments at your merch table (or anywhere else) go into your Settings tab in the Merch App and, under Payment Details, tap Stripe.
Once you’re in there, tap on the button that says “Connect To Stripe”, and you’ll be taken over to Stripe’s website to set up an account. If you already have one, you can login to your existing account, or continue setting up a new one.
You’ll need to have a few things on hand in order to complete the integration, but most of these details you’ll know off the top of your head. Stripe will ask you about the kind of business you operate, the products you’re selling, where you’re located, some details to confirm your identity, and then the really important stuff, like the bank account where your credit card transactions will be deposited. You’ll also be asked to enter your email and a password, should you need to log in to your Stripe account outside of Merch App.
That’s it. You’re all set up! If you have any questions at all, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the feedback button in the app.
