Stripe is currently available in our beta programme only, please contact us if you are interested to be part of the beta programme.

With Stripe, your customers can pay for invoices you send them, and you can import all your Stripe transactions directly into Clear Books.

Stripe is represented as a bank account in Clear Books.  Follow the steps in this guide to set up Stripe as a bank account, and set up the bank feed to import your Stripe transactions.

Step 1.

Navigate to Money > Bank accounts. Click on the Add Account button.

Step 2. 

Click on the Add link beside the Internet payments account type to create a Stripe account in Clear Books.

Step 3.

Select the Payment provider as Stripe, and bank contact to New Bank (this will create a new bank called “Stripe” for you automatically).


Connect to Stripe using your Publishable key, and Secret key.  These are exclusive to your Stripe account; log in to Stripe using the link provided to easily find your keys.

Click here to log in to Stripe now and obtain the keys.

Lastly, you can choose whether to display a payment button on the customer statement by selecting Yes in the drop-down provided. 

You must have set an account name in your Stripe account as this is required to bring the Stripe checkout and the payment button. Otherwise, the system will indicate there is no account name found in Stripe and will revert the setting back to No.

Click on the Save button to complete.

Your Stripe account is linked to Clear Books, and the bank feed will start importing your transactions.

To start using your Stripe feed, go to Money > Bank accounts to see the imported statement.
