Connect to Stripe

Connect to Stripe

You're able to connect your SocialGlow account to the payment service provider Stripe. With this connection, your group members will be able to purchase or subscribe to items you've enabled, all through the SocialGlow website.

Before you can create those paywalls, you'll need to connect your SocialGlow account to your Stripe account.

If you don't already have a Stripe account, you can read about and sign up on Stripe's website.

How to Connect to Stripe

From the SocialGlow dashboard, click Payments from the menu.

You'll be directed to the Paywall tab. Click the Connect to Stripe button.

A new page will open, asking you to enter your email address

Be sure to enter the email address associated with your Stripe account.

If you do not have an existing Stripe account, enter the email address you intend to use for Stripe.

If you have an existing Stripe account, you may be sent a verification code and asked to enter that code before continuing on.

From here, you'll be asked to fill in a series of the following forms:

Basics (business location and type)
Personal Details (name, address, etc.)
Business Details (industry, website, product description)
Bank Details (banking information needed for payouts)
Public Details for Customers (descriptors on how charges will show on statements)
Climate Commitment optional

After reviewing to be certain your details are correct, click the Agree & Confirm button.

Your connection will now show as pending verification. This can take 2-3 business days for Stripe to approve your application.
