Gateway: How to connect Stripe in order to monetize your community

8. Let's Get You Paid! Connect Your Stripe Account

This step is optional, and only applies if you are planning to monetize your community. If you are not planning to monetize, skip to step #5 to Continue Setting Up Your Community.

How To Connect Your Stripe Account to Your Jedari Community

Step 1: Add Your Gateway:

  • Login to your account at portal.jedari.com
  • Head to Gateways > List
  • Click on the green ADD button on the top right side of the page.
  • You will be redirected to Stripe where you can complete the login process. Complete any authentication requirements to sign into your account. 
  • After you have authenticated, you will be redirected back to Jedari with a successfully connected Gateway.
    • Optional: Edit your Stripe Account name if it pulled through as "Unknown" (common).

Step 2: Assign Your Stripe Account To Your Community:

Once your Stripe account is connected, you will need to assign it to your community. This is because you can manage multiple communities and assign a different Stripe account to each, if you so choose.

  • Communities -> List -> Edit
  • Navigate to the Gateway tab (second tab)
  • Select your stripe account from the dropdown list
  • Head to the last page and pressing submit. 

Currently, Jedari only has the capability to be linked to stripe as our merchanting platform, but we are looking into adding further integrations in the future. If you would like to request a different merchant account integration, please email us at hello@jedari.com.
