Do I need a merchant account?
To accept all major credit cards, simply connect your Ticketstripe account to an existing Stripe or PayPal account. If you do not have an existing account you can create a new account and start accepting payment right away. There are no setup fees and it’s easy to connect.
If you connect your Ticketstripe account with PayPal you will also be able to accept PayPal payments and Venmo payments. To connect your account with PayPal, simply log in to your Ticketstripe dashboard and enter your PayPal email address in My Account > Payments section.
