It is very important that your Hoofpick account has been connected to Stripe before you create any Bookable Services or Events (otherwise you will be unable to receive payments).
If you haven’t got a Stripe account yet, don’t worry, you can register for one and follow the instructions to get your Stripe account set up and activated first. You don't need to be a company to use Stripe, you can select that you are a Individual/Sole proprietor.
If you’ve already got Stripe, great! Let’s get it connected to your Hoofpick account.
First, login to your Stripe account and complete their verification process.
Then you must make sure that your Stripe account has a Name. Go to Profile in the top right of your dashboard and check to see that the name field has been completed.
Now login to your Hoofpick account and go to Settings - Profile in your dashboard.
Scroll to the bottom of your Member Details and you will find a button to Connect with Stripe. Click on this to get started.
If your device isn’t logged in to Stripe, you will go to the page below. These are instructions to 'Activate your account' if you haven’t already got a Stripe account, which you do, so click Sign in instead which can be found at the top right of this page.
If your device is already logged in to Stripe, you will go to the page below. Click Connect my Stripe account.
You will be redirected to your Hoofpick Profile again with a confirmation message that ‘Your Stripe has been connected successfully.’
Scroll to the bottom of your Member Details, and you will see Stripe account connected with a green tick (you may need to refresh your page).
Done! You can now create Bookable Services & Events and start taking payments online.
