Creating a Stripe account and linking it to the FundraisingBox

With Stripe, your supporters can donate quickly and easily using their credit cards. An overview of the terms and conditions can be found on the Stripe website. Please note that we offer special FundraisingBox charity terms, which are unlocked separately (see below).

Set Up

Please log into your FundraisingBox and click on Settings > Extensions > Payments. Under "Stripe", you can link your existing Stripe account to the FundraisingBox by clicking on "Connect existing Stripe account" and entering your Stripe login data.

If you do not have a Stripe account yet, click on "Create new Stripe account". You will be redirected to a registration page automatically.

Please review the automatically filled fields and amend any missing information:

Now please click on "Authorise access to this account" and you will be returned to the FundraisingBox back-end automatically.

IMPORTANT: All necessary settings for the linkage with Stripe will be applied automatically. You will not receive a separate confirmation e-mail and the extension is now productive! Afterwards, select the Stripe credit card payment method in the respective forms.

Terms and Conditions

In order to benefit from the charity specific terms as a non-profit organisation, please send an e-mail of the following or a similar kind to this address:


Subject: Non-profit terms: FundraisingBox - Stripe extension

Dear Stripe team,

We have integrated Stripe into the forms of our organisation "NAME" via the FundraisingBox. Please apply the non-profit terms to our account.

Please confirm the adjustment to the tariff model for non-profit organisations.

Thank you very much.


PCI certification

Any organisation that accepts donations and recurring payments made by credit card must be PCI certified. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, usually abbreviated as PCI or PCI-DSS, is a set of rules that is meant to ensure the careful and secure handling of credit card data. When using Stripe, PCI compliance is included and is completed during registration (account creation). Stripe has summarised important security criteria in English here.

Additional settings

In a Stripe account, you can change many settings, such as rate of payment and e-mail notifications. Please log into your Stripe account and review the settings.
