Tip: There are three different payment gateways that you can choose from to make sure that online donations flow seamlessly into your Kindful database: Stripe, Authorize.Net, or PayPal. 

Connect with Stripe

Log in to Kindful and select Settings on the left sidebar, then select Fundraising Settings > Gateways. 

Scroll down and find Sign Up & Connect under the Stripe logo. 


 You’ll be redirected to Stripe.


 If you haven’t created a Stripe account yet, you can begin filling out this form and create an account in a matter of minutes.

If you’ve already created a stripe account, click Sign in in the top right and follow the sign in instructions to connect your existing account.



Once you have either created a new account or signed in to your existing one, follow the prompts to finish connecting.


Once all these steps are completed, you should be successfully connected to Stripe. All gifts donated through either one of Kindful’s Donation Pages or the Donation Plugin on your site will now be processed by Stripe and show in your Kindful account.
