Stripe Debuts in New Zealand, Setmore Users Can Get Paid Online
Stripe Payments, an online payment services provider, is now available in New Zealand! This is exciting news for Kiwis who use Setmore or were considering using Setmore, because it means you can now take customer credit or debit card payments online with the Setmore + Stripe integration.
Note: Stripe payments and the Stripe-Setmore integration is already available in the US, UK, Canada, Europe, Japan, and other countries! We’ll provide a brief rundown for how to set up the integration, and some of its benefits, below.
Setmore + Stripe lets you get paid online
With the Setmore + Stripe integration, you can take customer credit and debit card payments through your Booking Page. You can even require customers to submit a payment before confirming their appointment slot, which gets a more firm commitment from them while giving you extra time during the appointment because you won’t have to worry about payment.
You can also just process payments through your Setmore calendar, by clicking on an appointment and then navigating to Edit Details, and then the Payments tab. Payment information is tied to each appointment for future reference, so you can easily see which appointments are paid up or overdue.
Please note, however, that the integration requires a Setmore Premium account to use.
