Credit Card Payments Outside of Platform
Answered

If I want to take credit card payments outside of the platform, do I need to create a second Stripe account, or is there a place where I can see the Stripe account that I created when I turned on Online Payments?

I am a new user to SimplePractice, so I did not have a Stripe account prior to signing up. I have turned on Online Payments and entered all the relevant information in the Business Details and Bank Details sections, and I have had my identity verified.

I have tried looking everywhere I could think within the tool the FAQs and the Community pages. I also checked on Stripe.com to see if my email address had an account associated with it (it didn't).

I am trying to avoid having two separate Stripe accounts, but if that is what is necessary to take payments from clients who only want to present a card in-person, I am fine with that.

    Hi Melissa, if you'd prefer to take payments from clients who do not want their cards stored, you'll want to create a secondary Stripe account outside of SimplePractice, then record these payments in SimplePractice as Manual Credit Card payments.
