In this article, we'll guide you on where to find your Stripe API credentials to link with your Cheqdin account.
Step 1: Login or create a Stripe account
Log in to your Stripe account. The Stripe account you use for your centre or school must be a Stripe business account. You can create a new Stripe business account for free if you don't have one. When creating a new Stripe account, you must ensure to select the correct region (country where your centre will be based). For more information, please see the article:

Step 2: Head to the Stripe dashboard
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.
Navigate to the 'Developers' tab on your Stripe dashboard. If you cannot find the menu of the developer portal, click on the below link once logged in https://dashboard.stripe.com/developers
Step 3: On the Developers page, click on the API Keys tab
Click on the 'API Keys' tab on the developers page. This page will display your standard API keys and credentials, which you will need to link to your Cheqdin account.
For security reasons, do not share your publishable or secret keys with anyone. Once the keys are entered into Cheqdin, the system will encrypt the keys and hash part of the information. You can only view the full key information again (a non-hashed version of the key) on your Stripe account.
To copy the keys, click on the text displayed under the 'Token' tab on your Stripe API keys dashboard. This will copy the Publishable Key to your clipboard, and you can paste it onto the pop-up box in Cheqdin's web portal. Click on 'Reveal Live Key' to show the live key or private key. Click on the text to copy it to your clipboard and then paste it into the secret key area on Cheqind's web portal.
