About Stripe

Stripe is a technology-first approach to payments that makes moving money as simple, borderless, and programmable as the rest of the internet. Stripe’s products power payments for all kinds of companies, including Socio Registration!

⭐️ Keep in mind, if you 're charging for Registrations, you must connect your Registration event to Stripe before you can publish.

Key Benefits

Instant Payout

For ticket sales, Socio Registration with Stripe offers instant payout, meaning revenue is available immediately. You'll receive funds in your bank account as tickets are sold. Not weeks later, or after your event concludes. 🙌

Secure & PCI-DSS Compliant

Stripe’s processes power the world’s leading marketplaces and platforms and can help your business stay compliant. All payments are secure and PCI-DSS compliant.

Easy & Fast to Set Up

Account activation is a simple process: you fill out the account application requesting some basic information about your product, your business, and your own personal relationship to your business. You can easily get up and running with Stripe in as little as 10 minutes.


Invoices provide an itemized list of goods and services rendered, which includes the cost, quantity, and taxes. You can also use them as a tool to collect payment. You can use the Stripe Dashboard to easily create one-off invoices, or you can automate the process through API integration.

How Stripe integrates with Socio

If your event is a paid event, when setting up Socio's Event Registration after you create your first ticket on the Tickets page, you'll be prompted to connect your event to Stripe. Simply follow the instructions to create or link a Stripe account. 👍

You'll also connect a Stripe account to our Lead Retrieval product if you decide to use Lead Retrieval Purchase Forms.
