When you connect your Simple Salon account with your Stripe account, you can take payments via your Online Booking site! Your Stripe account allows you to start taking payments straight away, and you don't need a Merchant Account from the bank.

After clicking Connect you will be redirected back to Simple Salon:
You'll now be connected, and redirected back to your Simple Salon account. As you can see, you're now connected to Stripe:
Now you'll need to go to the Online tab, then Admin, like so:

If instead you want to take full payment, then you'd instead select Pay Full Amount.
You'll notice that your Stripe account will automatically appear in the Select Payment Method section, and all you have to do is click Save!
