Once you connect Stripe to Vocal, you can start earning.

We’re all about keeping things simple; that’s why Vocal uses Stripe to process payments for creators. Connecting Stripe to your Vocal account is quick, easy and required to receive payments on Vocal. When you’re ready to withdraw your earnings, your balance will be transferred to your Stripe account. No waiting, no headaches–just connect and let the money flow.

Benefits of Connecting Stripe

You may already know that Vocal pays you for your stories, but that’s only one of the ways creators get paid on Vocal.

Our Tipping feature allows creators to accept payments on their profile and stories. To enable Tipping, simply connect Stripe from your Wallet. Tips are sent directly to your Stripe account and there is no minimum to withdraw.

We have made it easy for anyone to send a tip to you. Contributors do not need a Vocal or Stripe account, and can send tips with a credit/debit card or Apple Pay. Contributors can save their details, connected to an email address and a phone number, and pay with a single tap.

How to Connect Stripe for US Residents

From your Wallet page in your Vocal account, click “Connect Stripe” and select “As an individual in the United States.” You will be redirected to a secure page on Stripe to set up payments for Vocal.

First, verify your email and mobile phone number. Stripe will send a verification code to your mobile phone to continue. Once verified, enter your name, date of birth and either your debit card number or bank account information.

Click “Create Account” or “Connect Existing Account” to complete the process.

How to Connect Stripe for International Residents

    I have really great ideas and stories, but it's really too bad that stripe doesn't support my region.

    This is very useful information. But what about creators who come from countries not supported by Stripe?
