Creating a New Stripe Account

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

  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.
