Payment Collection via Stripe

Connect a Stripe account to your Vidcaster account to start receiving Paywall payments. Stripe accounts are free to create, all charges are fees on each Paywall transaction processed. Stripe charges 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction. To create a Stripe account, go to https://manage.stripe.com/register.

Create a Stripe Account

You will need to Activate your Stripe account by providing details on your company and bank account. Your Business Name will show up on subscribers bank statements. It is important to clearly represent your company on bank statements to decrease the chance of a dispute, which if lost, will incur fees on your account. We suggest using the URL of your Vidcaster site so that subscribers can go directly to your site and remind themselves of their purchase.

Business Name

Once your Stripe account is activated, you need to find your Live API Keys to enter into your Vidcaster account. Go to Account Settings in Stripe and select API Keys. You will need both Live API Keys, the Secret and Publishable.
