Before you can begin selling tickets, you must connect Sparxo to a payment processor. Sparxo uses Stripe because of its security, convenience to our customers and seamless integration.
To create a Stripe account you will need to gather the following pieces of information:
|Legal Name||The legal name of your business.|
|EIN / Tax ID||This is optional if you are creating an account as an individual.
It is required if you are signing up for a Corporation, Partnership, Non-profit, or LLC.
|Business Address||The address your business is registered to.|
|Website||Your company website address.|
|Legal Name||Your legal name, whether you are representing yourself or a company.|
|Date of Birth||Your date of birth, whether you are representing yourself or a company.|
|Last 4 Digits of SSN||To verify your identity, Stripe will ask for the last four digits of your social security number.|
|Bank Routing Number||Your bank’s routing number.|
|Bank Account Number||Your bank account must be a checking account. This is where the money from each ticket purchase will be sent.|
|Email Address||This email address will be used to log into the Stripe account.|
|Password||For security, use a unique password.|
