Setting up Your Stripe Integration
Before you can begin using our integration with Stripe to process credit card payments through Power Diary you will need to connect Power Diary to a Stripe account. Stripe accounts are free to setup (you are only billed on a per-transaction basis) so it's worth doing, even if just as a backup payment method. If you don't already have a Stripe account you'll be able to quickly create one as part of the integration process.
Follow the steps below to create and/or link your account to Stripe .
- Go to Setup > Credit Card Billing and click Connect to Stripe.
- Either log into your existing Stripe account (by clicking the log in link at the top of the page) or create a Stripe account by filling out the provided form.
- Click ✓ Connect my Stripe Account (for existing Stripe users) or Authorise Access to This Account (for new Stripe users).
A note on security
All credit card information will be stored by Stripe. Stripe encrypts all card numbers on disk with AES-256 encryption and stores decryption keys on separate machines. At no point will Power Diary be able to view or obtain plaintext card numbers from Stripe. You can read more about Stripe's security here.
