Integrating with Stripe

Integrating with Stripe

The following article will guide you through the process of setting up a Stripe.com account and linking it to e-Res so that you can add credit card and/or deposit requirements for phone reservations and/or online bookings.

Step 1 - Open a Stripe Account


In order to enable the card processing feature, you will first need to open a Stripe account.  This is simple process and can be completed in under 10 minutes.

To open an account, head over to https://dashboard.stripe.com/register and follow the instructions.  Once you've set up your account, you'll need to complete the "Activation" to allow you to take real-time credit card details.

Step 2 - Find your API Keys


Once you have activated your account, you'll need to get the "Publishable" and "Secret" keys so we can copy these into the e-Res settings.  To find these, click on the Developers->API Keys menu option.




Check that you are using the "live" keys.  If your keys start with pk_test and sk_test then you need to switch off the "View test data" button on in the menu to the left.

Step 3 - Add your API Keys to e-Res


Copy each of these key values into the corresponding fields within the e-Res Administration->Settings->Stripe settings page as shown below...



If you want to only take card details for reservations over a certain size, set this in the guest number input. Set it to 0 to take card details for all bookings.

Click on "Close" and your your stripe account will now be linked to e-Res. Bookings made online will ask for credit card details if required.

When reservations are made, you'll see a new customer appear in your Stripe Dashboard showing the booking details and associated credit card.  Charges can then be made through the Stripe Dashboard as and when required.
