Creating a Stripe account

You can create a new Stripe account by selecting Sales tools and then Payments. Then select Setup next to the Stripe option, and select the blue Connect with Stripe button as demonstrated below. You will then be redirected to Stripe to register your new account.


If you choose this method and create your Stripe account via your Bookwhen account instead of directly via Stripe, your Bookwhen admin email address will be automatically be used for your new Stripe account by default.

Alternatively, you can head here to register directly with Stripe. You will need to verify your email address and activate your account by submitting account information regarding your business and your bank account. Once this information is submitted, you're up and running.

3 - Select Setup next to the Stripe option, then the blue Connect with Stripe button:

4 - Your Stripe account will then be successfully integrated with your Bookwhen account.

Once you've set up your Stripe account with Bookwhen, you're all good to go and can start taking payment!

If you'd like to make a test booking before taking payment from your bookers, we'd recommend setting your ticket cost to a low amount such as 40p or create a discount code to cover the majority of your ticket value.

You cannot use test payment cards through the Bookwhen/Stripe integration.
