Getting Started with Stripe

If you want to accept credit and debit card payments, you must have a Stripe subscription; if you don't have a Stripe account, follow the steps below to create one.

Note: you can skip this step if you would like to set up a trial and test quickly; directly go to DepositFix Stripe Test Account
  1. Go to, fill out the information, and click on Create your Stripe account.
  1. Stripe will send a confirmation email. Check your inbox and click on Confirm email address.
  1. You will then get redirected to your Stripe dashboard.
      If you plan on using Stripe to collect live payments, you will need to activate your Stripe account; however, you do not need a live approved Stripe account to connect to DepositFix; you can still use an unapproved account for testing.

      Click on Activate your account.

  1. At the end of the form, click on Submit Application.

New Stripe accounts will go through an approval process. This process is almost instantaneous in most cases, and most users will accept payments immediately. If more information is needed to complete the approval, Stripe will contact the account owner.


DepositFix - Stripe Test Account

When you first sign up to DepositFix, you can skip connecting your Stripe account and use our test Stripe account for testing. This is very useful if you want to get set up and test quickly or don't have an active payment gateway yet.


To skip connecting Stripe, click on Skip this step.


When using our default Stripe test account, you're able to:

  1. Immediately create payment forms.
  1. Test these payment forms and all Stripes functionality.
  1. Switch to your own Stripe account and start collecting live payments immediately.
It is important to note that when using our default Stripe test account, you cannot access the Stripe account itself; instead, you can check your payments and transactions inside the DepositFix app or inside HubSpot itself.

Testing your forms using the DepositFix default Stripe

You can use this test account to test the following features on your forms:

  1. Single Payment forms.
  1. Donation Payment Forms.
  1. Subscription payment forms
  1. Discount codes and coupons.

When using subscription products, you can use one of the following plans:

  • demo_50_percent50% off
  • demo_30_flat - $30 off

You can test payments using the following Stripe testing cards.
