This topic describes how to configure Fusebill for payment processing via the Stripe payment gateway. The process is the same whether you are performing the setup for credit card or ACH payment processing via Stripe; however, be careful to select the correct option from the Gateway Configuration screen in Fusebill.
In order to complete the setup, you will need to log in to your existing Stripe account or create a new account.
For important considerations when choosing a payment gateway, see Choosing Your Payment Gateway.
To learn how ACH transactions are processed by Fusebill, see Using EFT and ACH Gateways.
For more information about Stripe Connect, visit the Stripe website.
To configure your payment gateway:
In Fusebill, navigate to Settings >Collections >Gateways and click Show Other Supported Gateways.
For credit card transaction processing: Under "Credit Card" click STRIPE CONNECT.
For ACH transaction processing: Under "ACH/EFT" click STRIPE ACH CONNECT.
A page appears prompting you to create a Stripe account.
Note: If you are already logged into Stripe, you may see a different screen requesting that you log in as an administrator or ask you for confirmation that you wish to allow the connection.
If you already have a Stripe account, click Sign In in the top right corner of the page.
If you don't already have a Stripe account, complete the form and click Authorize access to this account.
Login to your Stripe account using your existing credentials, or the credentials for the account you just created.
The Configure Stripe Connect gateway configuration pop-up appears.
Configure vault storage options according your needs.
If you are using Stripe's Payment Intents API, turn on Store Credit Cards with Payment Intents.
If you are working in a Stripe test environment, ensure Developer Mode is selected.
Fusebill will still interpret all transactions as legitimate, so you will need to refund charges made in this mode in order to maintain proper ledger balances in Fusebill.
The sample credit card numbers provided by Fusebill may work with your gateway in Developer Mode; however, Fusebill recommends contacting your payment processor to obtain the test numbers that they recommend.
