Paying Vendors with Your Stripe Account

This article will show how you can connect Jetti with your Stripe account to automate vendor payments.

Last updated June 6th, 2020

Jetti can support hosted Stripe accounts using Stripe Connect. What this means is that your vendor payments can be automated with the use of Jetti, and they can be directly sent out from your own Stripe account.

If you and your vendors all have an existing Stripe account, you will be using the Standard Stripe account. In this case, your vendors will be able to connect directly from their vendor portal. If your vendors don't have a Stripe account, that is fine too. You can look into the Custom Stripe account, which allows you to create accounts for your vendors. Your vendors won't need to login to these accounts, nor even know that they exist. If you require more information on the different accounts, kindly contact Stripe's support.

This article will show how you can connect Jetti to your Stripe account.

Generate the Credentials

For the connection, you will need to generate three credentials from your Stripe account: the Stripe Secret Key, Stripe Publishable Key and Stripe Client ID.

  1. To access the Secret Ket and Publishable key, click the Developers link in your Stripe account, then the API keys link. You can then access an existing set of credentials, or generate a new set.

Next, you'll need to get the Stripe Client ID. To get this, you'll need to go to Settings > Connect (https://dashboard.stripe.com/settings/applications). On this page, you need to copy and paste the client ID from Stripe to Jetti.

You'll also need a redirect on this page. To do this, click + Add URI. Enter https://api.jetti.io/auth/stripe/vendor. This will tell Stripe where to send the vendor once they've connected their Stripe account with yours.

If you see warnings or don't have the option to do any of the above - we recommend reaching out to Stripe support. They may be a reason (e.g. you haven't verified your account). It's likely we won't be able to help tell you why or how to resolve whereas the Stripe support team will.

There are also some other options you should complete on this page, such as uploading your logo, settings colors. It's not needed, but will make things clearer for your vendor.

  1. You'll can access the http://api.jetti.io/auth/stripe/vendor

To get the Client ID and Secret API key, follow Stripe’s instructions on how to generate them in your Stripe account.

Connecting to Jetti

Now that you have your credentials, you can go to your Jetti account and create the connection.

  1. Go to Integrations > Stripe under payments
  2. Select “Use my Stripe account” and enter the credentials.
  3. Enter the credentials and click save

Now your Stripe account is connected to Jetti, and you’ll be able to automatically pay your vendors using your own account!

Connecting your vendors

Your vendor will now be able to connect their Stripe account to yours in the vendor poral. In their portal, they can click on the payments tab, then the "Connect" button.
