One of our strongest recommendations to clients using our fundraising capabilities is to enable credit card processing. Credit card processing allows for your guests to pay for donations, tickets, and bids directly from their mobile device or computer. This leads to increased ease for your guest, higher proceeds, and more efficient checkout.
In order to use credit card processing, you can quickly and easily setup a Stripe account through your Accelevents Manager Console. Funds will then go directly to your Stripe account and will be transferred to a bank account of your choice within 48-72 hours. To get started, follow the instructions below:
- In your Accelevents Manager Console, click Settings --> Credit Card Processing in the left-hand menu:
2. Click "Connect with Stripe"
3. A pop-up window will open where you will be asked to enter additional information to create your account. Please fill this information out accurately.
Note: If a pop-up window doesn't appear when you click Connect with Stripe, unblock pop-ups in your browser. This video demonstrates how to access the popup if it is blocked by the Chrome browser.
Note: Prior to entering your information, your account will show as pending in the Accelevents Manager Console:
4. Your Stripe account status will now show as "Connected" in your Accelevents console:
