When you connect your Simple Salon account with your Stripe account, you can take payments for online bookings via your Online Booking site, as well as take credit card payments directly from your POS page on a computer, device or smartphone.
Your Stripe account allows you to start taking payments straight away, and you don't need a Merchant Account from the bank.
The following article will show you how to connect to Stripe so you can take Credit Card payments via POS.
To instead connect to Stripe for Online Bookings, please checkout the following article:
To get connected to Stripe you'll first need to set up your Stripe account
