What is Stripe?

Will my ActBlue account still work as expected?

Yes! All ActBlue features and functionality will work seamlessly with Stripe merchant accounts including your dashboard, reporting information, contribution forms, and ActBlue Express Lane.

Where can I go for support?

What are the benefits of Stripe powered merchant accounts?

  • Fast onboarding experience. Turnaround time from setup submission to fundraising can often be as short as 1-2 business days
  • Transparent & predictable fee billing. All fees are straightforward and deducted from settlements prior to payout, so there’s no separate fee invoicing.
  • Easy reconciliation. We’ll be able to provide a single report that shows all the information you need for compliance and reporting, including all ActBlue fees, Stripe fees, and donation Order Numbers.
