Hostfully provides integration with the Stripe payment processor for all of Hostfully's international customers subscribing to at least an agency account.
(Note: The charge to use stripe is 2.9% charged by Stripe and 1% charged from Hostfully on every booking.)
What is Stripe?
Stripe is one of the best ways to accept payments online and in mobile apps. Stripe handles billions of dollars every year for forward-thinking businesses around the world, and helps businesses accept payments from anyone, anywhere. Internally, they say their goal is to increase the GDP of the internet - they want to bring more businesses online worldwide.
How does it work?
It is so easy to activate Stripe on Hostfully. Just go to your Integrations page to turn ON Stripe.
It is that easy.
- If you already own a Stripe account, you will be able to connect it.
- If you're new to Stripe, the system will prompt you to create an account.
Note: if you want to connect to a sub account of a current Stripe account, you should log out of Stripe first. Because when turning on the integration, it automatically selects the current account.
From that point on, proceeds from the rental bookings you close through Hostfully will be deposited to the bank account connected to your Stripe account.

P.S Here is a helpful tip submitted by one of our clients!
ATT: STRIPE USERS!
Someone shared with me they had a booking with a stolen credit card & Stripe couldn't offer protection for the charge, deducting it from her account. For an extra layer of authentication, log into your stripe account & follow these steps:
1. Log into your STRIPE account
2) Click on RADAR (left side)
3) Then click on RULES (left side)
4) Go to middle section & on right side click button that says ENABLE
What does this do? It requests a text be sent to the OWNER of the card usedfor the purchase.
Once Stripe is deactivated, the Hostfully PMP UI no longer allows PMs to process the refund from Hostfully. Even so, PMs can still definitely just log directly in to Stripe and issue the refund from there.
