Connecting a gateway is a mandatory step that must be completed before you will be able to accept donations.

To connect a payment gateway, select My Account, then click on Gateways.

Next, click New Gateway.

From the drop-down menu, select the kind of gateway you are connecting.

Select Stripe

Click "Connect Stripe" to start the process of connecting either your existing Stripe account or to create and connect a new Stripe account.

Create or Sign-in

You can either connect your existing Stripe account by clicking the login link in the top right corner of the screen or create a new Stripe account by filling out the information fields provided. After filling in all of the account information, click to "Authorize access to this account".

Connect Stripe to Txt2Give

All that's left to do now is to click "Connect my Stripe account".

Do a test donation 

Do not skip this step!  Your unique giving information is included in the Welcome email that we sent.  Doing a test donation is how you will know if your connection was successful or not.  If you receive an error, that is coming from Stripe's system letting you know that your connection was not successful. Let us know if you receive an error during your test donation and we will help you to resolve the issue. You can contact us at
