Activate Stripe as a payment provider

MyVR has teamed up with Stripe to easily accept online credit card payments directly from renters. 

Stripe is an easy to use merchant payment system that MyVR has teamed up with to process payments from renters online. Our partnership allows MyVR to access payment history and provide help with payment support issues.

When you use Stripe with MyVR, renters will never see that Stripe is processing the payments; rather, it will appear as though your business is processing them independently.

After completing the application at Stripe, automatically return back to the MyVR account and the new Stripe connection will be activated. The status of the Stripe account will be "Approved" and the account will be ready to begin taking payments from renters through MyVR! 


Multiple Stripe Accounts

Multiple Stripe accounts can be established as necessary for the business. 

Note: When multiple Stripe accounts are set up and connected, one will be the default account, which is the account that will always be associated with a property if one is not manually designated. 

Create a new booking policy for each merchant/bank account. For any property that should not be utilizing the default booking policy, assign a different booking policy. Assign a new booking policy to a property by going to Properties > Properties > [select property to edit] > Booking & Payment.
