Payment Capabilities Overview

You're able to connect your SocialGlow account to the payment service provider Stripe. With this connection, you're able to set up paywalls for your clients to gain access to your groups.

You can watch the full video tutorial below or continue reading for written instructions.

No processing fees

SocialGlow has a 0% processing fee for all paywall charges made. This applies to all subscription levels.

Note: This reflects our policy here at SocialGlow, and does not include any fees accrued from Stripe.

Connecting 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'll 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.
