Stripe + Funraise = ❤️
Stripe is a leading credit card processor and we love it for several reasons:
- It's easy to get started with Stripe.
- Stripe offers a discounted processing fee for nonprofits! (2.2% + $0.30)*
1. To access your Stripe API key, log into your Stripe account and make sure your account is set to "Live" mode.
2. Click "API" on the left hand side and copy the “Live Secret Key”
3. Jump back to Funraise and click "Account" in the gear dropdown, and then click "Gateways" in the top nav bar.
4. In the "Add New Gateway" box, select "Stripe"
5. Paste the Live Secret API Key and click "Add New Gateway"
Great Job! You should now see your Stripe gateway in "Active Gateways." Lastly, email firstname.lastname@example.org and mention that you're a new Funraise customer to apply the discount.
IMPORTANT: The order of your gateways has an effect on how donations will be processed. Learn more about how to order your gateways here.
*Stripe's typical pricing structure is 2.9% + $0.30 but they offer discounted pricing for non-profit organizations:
2.2% + $0.30 per transaction (+1% for foreign transactions) and
3.5% for American Express transactions
