Connecting a Stripe Account for Money Transfers Only

As of January 2nd, 2019, if you've chosen to allow new Clients to book through your Business Listing in the MassageBook Search Directory, all new Clients booking through there will be required to prepay in order to confirm their appointment.  

Connecting a Stripe account for money transfers only allows you to:

  • Receive payment for an appointment booked by a new Client through your Business Listing in the MassageBook Search Directory. If you're fully connected with Stripe or Square for credit card processing in MassageBook at the time of online booking, funds from that type of appointment will automatically be sent to the bank account associated with your Stripe or Square account. If you've chosen to not fully connect with Stripe or Square, connecting with Stripe for money transfers only let's you still receive funds from new Clients booking through your Business Listing.

  • Collect payment for an appointment paid for with a MassageBook Gift Card. If an appointment is paid for with a MassageBook Gift Card, you'll receive 83% of the redeemed amount. Only Stripe can be used to receive funds from that type of payment. If you're connected with Square to charge credit cards in MassageBook or not connected to Stripe for all credit card payments in MassageBook, you must connect with Stripe for money transfers only in order to collect funds from an appointment paid for with a MassageBook Gift Card.
