The first thing you need to do is to contact Stripe and make an agreement with them to be your payment processor.
When you have a contract in place with Stripe you can connect Stripe and Bókun.
To connect Stripe and Bókun select the "Cog wheel in top right corner" then you select “Payment Providers” from the side bar:
Select "Connect a provider", to add a new payment provider. If you select "Supported Providers" you will see a list of available options that will take you directly to the payment providers signup page.
Select the Stripe Logo to add Stripe as an payment option:
Select the Payment option "Stripe Token"
Fill in the following form according to the integration information you get in the Stripe Admin interface. (see below)
The name you want to give the connection.

Make sure that there are no spaces in the fields, neither before or behind, the numbers. If there are spaces you will get an error message when you try to continue to payment in the booking process.
Find your Publishable- and Secret Key
As mentioned above, you need to have information from Stripe to Authenticate Bokun to use your Stripe account to process payments.
- Log in to your Stripe account.
- Navigate to Developers > API in the left hand menu.
- Copy the Publishable- and Secret keys and paste them into your your Stripe Payment Provider settings in the Bokun platform.
Stripe's API information is found in your Stripe Dashboard.
What next? How to activate my payment option
The next step is to activate the payment provider on your booking channel. Booking channel is what links bookings and payments from your website to Bókun. The reason for why you have to select the payment provider is that you can have more than one contract with payment providers. E.g. you can have one contract with Stripe in EUR for your European market and another one in USD for you american website. In that case you would have to select the EUR contract for you European booking channel.
To add the right payment provider to your booking channel. Select "the menu icon in the top left corner" the select "Booking Channels" from the sidebar:
Select the booking channel you intend to add the payment provider to from your list of channels. You probably just have one channel.
Select from the "Payment Provider" drop down list, the correct payment provider for this Booking channel. Remember to save when you are done. When you save this is set up and you can receive payments online.
Now you are set and ready to accept payments on your website
The last step: Test your payment process
After you add the booking engine to your website, a good rule is to create one booking and pay for it. This is to test both the booking process as it turns to your customer and to double check that your payment option is functioning as it should. Here are information on how you can add a booking engine to your website and test the whole booking process.
