If so, you have used Stripe. According to Stripe, there are over 100,000 companies that utilize Stripe including Unicef, BlueApron, DoorDash, DocuSign, HubSpot, Pinterest, and NationalGeographic. (See more at Stripe). You may have been using Stripe without knowing it because many organizations built in the Stripe functionality seamlessly within their own platform. The organizations who programed Stripe this way have full control over your account that you set up when you enter your payment information.
At NeedANotary.Com, Stripe flows the payment from the customer to the notary. We have intentionally programmed Stripe to allow notaries the full control over their accounts. When you sign up at NeedANotary.Com, you are required to create a Stripe account that connects to NeedANotary.Com’s platform. In this way, all of your information is contained within a Stripe account that you control and none of your information is passed on to NeedANotary.Com. Our Stripe accounts are connected via a “token” (unique code) that does not contain any of your personal bank information. We chose this independent set-up to not only keep your personal information safe and secure but to keep it within your control.
NeedANotary.Com wants customers’ and notaries’ information to be safe on the internet. We utilize well-known and secure systems like SiteLock and Stripe to keep your information and our site safe because they are the experts in their respective fields and because they employ the best avenues in internet security. We employ them to provide security so that we can focus on serving the customers with all their notary needs.
Be safe and secure setting up your Stripe accounts and connecting them to NeedANotary.Com. We won’t have your information and your payments will be transferred directly (via Stripe) after completion of your signing appointments. To connect your account, log into your NeedANotary.Com account, click on “Your info” and “Your Profile info”. The link to connect your Stripe Account will take you to Stripe where you can set up your Stripe and connect it to NeedANotary.Com.
