Connect your channel to Stripe
Setting up a paywall or subscription for your content is an important part of using Vimsy for many channel owners.
To start this process you will need to navigate to your Channel settings. You can access your Channel's settings from the Vimsy Menu in the top right corner of every Vimsy Channel. From your channel settings, select Payments from the menu on the left. You will then be presented with the Connect With Stripe button.
All transactions through Vimsy are handled by Stripe, a trusted online payments handler. You can read more about their service on their website. In order to use this function of Vimsy you will need to create a Stripe account.
I already have a Stripe account
When you click the Connect With Stripe button you will be taken to Stripe's 'Connect with Vimsy' form. In the top right hand corner of the page is an option to sign in.
Log in with your Stripe account, authorise Vimsy to connect to your account and you're ready to go. You will now be able to return to Vimsy and start selling your content.
I don't have a Stripe account
When you click the Connect With Stripe button you will be taken to Stripe's 'Connect with Vimsy' form. Complete this form to create your account.
Once your Stripe account is created it will be connected to Vimsy. You will now be able to return to Vimsy and start selling your content.
You will now be able to take payments through your Vimsy channel using Stripe.
Disconnecting from Vimsy
If you not longer wish for your Stripe account to be connected to Vimsy, you must go to your Stripe Dashboard on stripe.com and remove authorisation. Your connection to Vimsy will then be terminated.
