How to connect a Stripe account to the Guesty Dashboard
It doesn't matter if you already have an account with Stripe or if you need to open a new one - the process is the same.
1. In Guesty, go to Account -> System Settings -> Payments
2. Click on "Connect Stripe Account" button - it will open a new tab of Stripe. In it you can either sign in to your existing account or easily create a new one. Performing either one of these actions through this tab will enable you to collect payments directly through the Guesty Dashboard.
3. Click Save. This will close the tab and update your existing view inside Guesty.
*** Giving Guesty access to your account will allow you to collect money but not to initiate payments on your own. You will only be able to collect payments and refund refund them, but not send money to guests / owners / suppliers / etc.
