Excited to start monetizing your community? We are too!
But before anything else, there are a few things we recommend you prepare first before you start introducing paid subscriptions to your members! Take a look at our list below.
Verify your account
"Know Your Customer” (KYC) obligations require us to verify that account holders are operating from the business addresses they put in their account application. As such, we ask our customers to confirm their email addresses, provide ID, and submit a few documents. Make sure you complete all of the requirements so you can enjoy Stripe's full suite of features!
Set up your branding
Before you start promoting subscriptions in your community, you'll want to set up your branding first! Customize the look and feel of your receipts, invoices, checkout page, payment links, and customer portal by going to your Branding Settings, where you can:
Upload your logo and icon
Choose your brand and accent colors
Style your checkout page's font and shapes
You also have the option to update your invoice template.
Choose a payout schedule
Your payout schedule refers to how often you want money sent to your bank account.
In supported countries, your default payout schedule is daily automatic. You can change this in the Stripe Dashboard to weekly automatic, monthly automatic, or manual payouts. You can even specify the day of the week or month that you want payouts to arrive in your bank account!
Turn on customer emails
Make sure your customers receive email notifications by enabling this setting on the Stripe Dashboard. You can configure Stripe to send email notifications or reminders to your customers:

To start sending emails from your own domain, complete the following three steps:
