How to open Stripe account and how to Integrate with Explara?

Stripe is a Payment Gateway that allows you to collect payments online and in mobile apps. Stripe supports businesses in 25 countries.

You can simply create an account on Stripe and connect that account with your Explara account. This will enable you to collect payments in International Currencies for your Explara Event or Group Memberships.

Stripe has a flat charge for using their payment gateway that can vary from country to country.

In order to receive the proceeds from online transaction,  you need to associate a bank account to your Stripe account and start receiving payouts. You can update your bank account information at any time, and you can also customize how frequently payouts are made.

Payments accepted when using Stripe for your website’s checkout go directly into your bank account instead of sitting in a third party account. The very first transfer Stripe makes to your bank will take 7 days to post in the US or Canada, and can take up to 10 days to post to UK and EU accounts.
