Stripe is the merchant processor that we use for charges and recurring membership billing. There are no setup fees, and they charge an industry standard of 2.9% + $0.30. That rate can typically be negotiated with Stripe once your facility has a history of transactions.
SportKeeper needs to talk with your Stripe account in order to sync and record payments, plans, and service products. This happens through the use of Stripe Connect.
Each facility is connected to its own Stripe account. This is useful in cases where you may run multiple locations, and prefer each location to have its own Stripe account for accounting purposes. All charges and memberships are created within your Stripe account.
To connect your account:
From within the main application, head to your account/facilities
Locate the facility, then click on "Settings" using the action dropdown
Click on the "Commerce" tab
Click on "Connect with Stripe"
After connecting your Stripe account you will be able to process credit card transactions.
To disconnect your account:
Go to your facilities Settings menu
Click on Commerce
Click on "Disconnect Stripe"
