How do I connect to Stripe? (Canada)
Stripe is the payment processor that we have partnered with to accept payments from online reservations. While in the onboarding process, creating an account with Stripe and connecting it to your account in the Good Sam Booking platform is mandatory for accepting online reservations. Stripe has partnered with millions of companies all over the globe to process payments and is trusted by both start-ups and some of the world’s largest corporations (Google, Amazon).
