All campaigns on StartSomeGood must be linked to a Stripe account. Stripe is a highly secure payment processor that is available in these countries:
Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
If your country is not listed here, we recommend that you partner with an individual or an organization from one of these countries who will be willing to collect funds on your behalf.
We work with Stripe because their process compliments our tipping point model. Payments are only processed when your campaign tips, this means that there is no need for refunds should your campaign be unsuccessful.
Stripe enables donors to pledge using only a credit card, from anywhere in the world. Donations are transferred directly into the Stripe account linked to the Project on StartSomeGood. From there, funds will be transffered directly to the linked bank account.
Please note that if it is your first time using Stripe, the transfer to your bank account may take up to 7 business days.
