You can trigger invitations to vendors for connecting their account two different ways:
- You can choose to send an email invitation to vendors for connecting their Stripe accounts directly from the vendor portal. To do this, go to contacts > Vendor name > Contact tab > Add user (If not already set up) > Click dropdown arrow to the right > Invite
- The second option is to invite vendors to connect via Stripe. This may be useful with vendors that do not use the portal on a regular basis, as accessing the portal may create confusion. To trigger this invitation, go to the Payment Setup tab of the vendor settings, select Stripe, and click the invite button.
Unlike connecting to a Stripe Standard account (where the vendor does have a Stripe account), this does not require intervention or action from the vendor.
You will need to make sure you create the vendor profile in your Stripe account.
Go to Connect > Create > Set up vendors Personal and Bank information. (You will need to do this for each vendor using this method)
Once you have completed the vendor Stripe set up please see here to complete the Stripe payout workflow:
