How to Connect a Stripe Account
Connecting your Stripe account with Spiffy is easy.
(If you do not yet have a Stripe account, you can set it up through this process as well.)
When you create your Spiffy account, you will be guided to connect your Stripe account during the account creation process.
If you've already gone through the account creation process, this tutorial on how to connect a new Stripe account will be more helpful.
Step 1: Create your Spiffy account.
From the main website, click on the "Create Account" link and you will see a form like this. Enter your Full Name, Email, and create your Password. Click Continue.
Step 2: Select "Stripe" as your payment gateway
You will be presented with two options to choose from as your payment gateway Stripe and PayPal, select Stripe
Step 3: Click on "Connect Stripe" to start the process
Clicking the "Connect Stripe" button will take you over to Stripe to Sign in to your Stripe account to connect it.
(If you're already signed in to your Stripe account in another tab, you may see a little different of a process.)
Step 4: Click the small "Sign In" link at the top right of the Stripe page.
It's easy to miss, but at the top right of the page you will see "Already have a Stripe account? Sign in". Click the blue "Sign in" link.
(If you don't yet have a Stripe account, at the bottom of this page will be an "Account Activation" form. You can see the "Activate your Account" title at the bottom left of the screenshot below. That is where you will enter your business details to setup a new Stripe account.)
Step 5: Sign in to your Stripe account
Enter your Stripe login credentials here, and click "Sign in to your account".
Step 6: Stripe is Connected
And that's it! You should see a green notification bar at the top of the screen, confirming your Stripe account was successfully connected!
Click the "Continue" button and you should be redirected back to our Account Creation process.
Step 7: Complete the signup process for setting up your Spiffy account
You will be asked to provide some necessary details like your Business Name, Support Email, Support Phone etc. as you can see here
Step 8: Choose your subdomain
The last step is to set your subdomain which will give you a unique URL where all of your checkouts and other customer facing pages will reside.
Woohoo! Your Spiffy account is all set now and connected with your Stripe account. You can start creating your checkouts and accepting payments.
