Connect Stripe

1. Navigate to Settings by clicking your profile icon at top-right

2. Click Gateways

3. Click Connect with Stripe

4. You'll be redirected to a Stripe page. Here you can create a new account or connect an existing account. After completing this step, you'll be redirected back to Funraise.

Advanced: If your plan includes Advanced Gateways, your gateway settings view may be different. If so, click New Gateway and then select Stripe from the list.

Phone verification

Be aware, it is common that Stripe requires phone number verification as a follow-up step a few days later—if Stripe begins the process to request your phone number verification, transactions may fail until you've verified the number.
