Getting a head start - Setting up Stripe
The on boarding process with the Good Sam Booking platform has a series of steps and actions that you will be guided through by your Implementation Manager, but there are a few things that you can do to get a head start before you ever have your first on boarding meeting! Completing the 9 step sign-up process with Stripe before your Kick Off call is a great place to start. The process from start to finish takes ~ 15 - 20 minutes.
