Credit Card Processing

Connect Your Handbid Account to Stripe

Stripe is our integrated payment processor and is required in order to accept payments through your Handbid site.

Stripe is Handbid's integrated payment processor.  You can connect your own Stripe account your organization Handbid Manager.  Setting up your own Stripe account is free and it comes with a 3.5% + $0.30 per transaction Credit Card processing fee.  Funds will be transferred directly to you when a payment is processed. Learn more on the Handbid Payment System and Receiving Funds. 

Starting January 1, 2024, you must set up and connect your own Stripe account to avoid a $150 per-event processing fee per event. If you forgo connecting your own Stripe account, payout will take a minimum of 2-3 weeks to receive your check from the time of your settlement request.  Please set up your Stripe account BEFORE opening up your ticketing.
