Stripe is Funraise's preferred payment gateway for cards. You can create a new Stripe account from within Funraise or connect an existing account. Configure your Stripe connection in Settings > Gateways.

There are two possible gateway settings views based on your plan:

  • Default - which only includes Stripe and PayPal

  • Advanced Configurations - which allows for more gateways, currency routing, and priority ordering.

Phone verification
