Stripe is a payment gateway that allows you to take payments directly from your clients. It’s integrated into WriteUpp so that you can take payments in a seamless manner. Using Stripe with WriteUpp will reduce time-sapping admin, improve your cashflow and reduce your transaction costs. You can find out more about Stripe here.

To take payment (via Stripe) in WriteUpp you will be charged your local Stripe fee + 0.5%. So, for example, if your local Stripe fees are 1.4% + 20p/transaction you will be charged 1.9% + 20p/transaction.

All fees are deducted by Stripe.

If you wish to start taking payments in WriteUpp via Stripe, open the Main Menu and choose Integrations & Add Ons then click on Configure underneath Stripe.

From here you will be taken to the following screen where you will need to connect to your Stripe account. Don’t worry if you’ve not got a Stripe account, you will be able to set one up as part of the process.

When you click on the "Connect with Stripe" button, you'll be advised that WriteUpp would like to connect to your Stripe account and have the option to either create an account or log in to an existing Stripe account.

To log into an existing Stripe account, click on this link at the top right of your screen:

Then follow the instructions on screen to log into your Stripe account and confirm that you want to connect your Stripe account to WriteUpp:

To create a new Stripe account, complete the displayed account form and then Authorise access to this account at the bottom of the page.

Having connected your Stripe account, you will be taken back to WriteUpp where you'll see confirmation of the connection on screen:

You'll also be able to:
reconnect your Stripe account if you're having problems
see details on how you can insert a "Pay by Stripe" link on your invoices
disconnect your Stripe account if you no longer wish to take payments in WriteUpp

Having connected (and setup) Stripe, all payments made via Stripe will paid into your Stripe account where they can be transferred to your business bank account.
