How to create or set up a new Stripe account?

Modified on Mon, 25 Mar 2024 at 04:12 PM

Setting up a Stripe Account for your business takes a few simple steps:

Step 1: Visit this link and begin by registering a new Stripe account

Follow the onscreen registration instructions to create an account. 

Step 2: Head to your inbox and verify your email address

Check your email inbox and click on the 'Verify email address' button to verify your email address

Step 3: Once your email address is verified, you can view your Stripe account dashboard. By default, your Stripe account will only offer a test mode until you have 'Activated Payments' and completed setting up your account and banking information. 


Your account must be activated to access live data! Do not use test mode Stripe API credentials to link with your Cheqdin account. This will not work. You will require 'Standard Keys or LIVE production Keys' to link to your Cheqdin account.  

Step 4: Follow the activation steps displayed on your dashboard and submit all the required information to Stripe. Once your account activation has been processed by Stripe, you will receive an email confirming activation. You can then set up the LIVE API keys to link to your Cheqdin account. 

Step 5: After your Stripe account is activated, you can link your Stripe API to Cheqdin and start accepting online debit/credit card payments.  

To link your Stripe API credentials to your Cheqdin account, see the article:
