Before connecting a payment processor, you’ll need to create an account with them. To learn more, visit Stripe’s documentation or PayPal’s documentation

How to connect

To connect a payment processor to your Bio Site using the web editor:

  1. In the left navigation menu, click to open the Sections panel.
  2. Under Recommended, click Crowdfunding or Tips to begin setting up one of those sections. 
  3. Click Add payment provider.
  4. Then click Connect Stripe or Connect PayPal.
  5. Follow the prompts to connect your payment processor.
