During Stripe account setup, you are asked to link a bank account to Stripe so that donations and payment funds can be electronically deposited to that bank account.

Once you have an established Stripe account, you would then need to connect it to your Livingtree Give account.

At that point, your Livingtree Give account would be live to collect online donations and payments. Finally, from there, you would be able to access the deposited funds from the bank account that you had linked to Stripe.

With respect to the video, the following are a few frequently asked questions (FAQs) and answers regarding Stripe:

Q: In the video, a question regarding having a business and Tax ID number is requested. I don't have either of these. Can I still sign up for a Stripe account to then collect funds via Livingtree Give?
