You can connect your Stripe account with Civil Boosts so your supporters can send proceeds to your Boost. The Stripe integration offers the ability to accept these payment options:
Debit and Credit Cards: This option is available for Boosts in any currencies supported by your Stripe account.
To set up and connect your Stripe account:
- Go to My Dashboard > Newsroom and scroll down to the Stripe section and click Connect with Stripe.
- If you have not launched your first Boost, you will not see appear. Once you boost is launched, you can go ahead and connect your Stripe account. You will only have to connect Stripe once after you launch your first Boost.
- If you already have a Stripe account, Sign into your Stripe account on the top. If you’re new to Stripe, you will need to complete the form.
Once Stripe Connect has been activated, credit card payments will be enabled automatically on your Boost. You can choose to disable those later, though.
As supporters send their proceeds to your Boost, their payment will go directly to your Stripe account where you will be able to see it on your Stripe dashboard.
In most cases, domestic US transaction fees are 2.9% + $0.30 for credit card payments. For other applicable fees and more information, you can visit Stripe’s pricing page for your country.
Stripe supports businesses in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and many European countries.
Typical payments are automatically transferred to your bank account on a rolling basis (2 days for the US and 7 days for all other countries).
