It is possible to collect membership fees and fees from companies using Stripe integration. Payments are transferred straight to your Stripe account (Stripe fees apply). Stripe is an external service provider that will handle all the monetary transactions. Please note that Dealum will not be involved in the monetary transactions.

To get Stripe integration for your deal room, please contact your account manager or our support. Only our team can activate Stripe for your deal room.

After Stripe is activated for your deal room, you should go to the 'Preferences' section in deal room settings. Click on ‘Seller setup’ and you will be directed to a wizard where you can connect your deal room with a Stripe account. After clicking on ‘Connect with stripe’, you should create an account on Stripe and enter all the necessary information or connect your existing Stripe account. If you have followed through the process in Stripe, then your deal room is connected to Stripe and ready to accept payments. For collecting payments you should define payment plans in Seller setup by clicking on ‘Add new plan’. You have to fill in name, price of the plan, currency and choose the billing schedule (billing schedules can be one time payment, annually, half-yearly, quarterly or monthly). After you have defined the plans, you can assign a payment plan to each member group that you want to charge (in ‘Seller setup’) or to companies that should be charged (in the funnel view).

Asking a fee from members

You will be able to see the paid until date of each member in the members list of your deal room. You can add the paid until date manually for members who belong to a member group that does not have a payment plan connected to it. You can also manually adjust the paid until date of all other members, including members who have not accepted the invitation to join the deal room. The paid until date will be updated automatically for all members who pay their membership fee via Stripe. The paid until dates that have passed and have not been updated will turn red in the members list. That helps you easily identify debtors. If you move a member to a different member group that has the same/different/no payment plan attached to it, the paid until date will not be reset and the member won’t be asked to make another payment before their membership expires. When their ‘paid until’ date passes, they will be asked to make a payment according to the payment plan attached to the member group they are in at the time of expiry.

If the paid until date of a member has passed, the member will be prompted to make a payment as soon as they visit your deal room. They will be notified about the required payment via a pop-up notification which will direct them to the payment process.

When you start using Stripe and want to be able to input paid until dates for your members before you activate a payment plan for them (before the system would start asking them to pay a fee), we recommend activating a payment plan for your admin group temporarily. That way, the data fields where you can enter membership expiry dates become available. Once you have finished adding dates, you can deactivate payment plan for your admin group and activate it for right group(s) you want to collect fees from.

Asking a fee from companies

To assign a payment plan to companies you can multi-select companies in any funnel step and choose ‘Set payment plan and date’ from the actions menu that appears on top of the funnel or click on ‘Set plan and date’ next to an application if you want to assign a payment plan to one specific company. You can choose from all payment plans you have previously defined in ‘Seller setup’.

You can let companies know or remind them that a payment is needed by clicking on ‘Request payment’ in the ‘Payment plan’ dialogue. You can also include a personal comment in the notification email they will receive if you wish.

If the paid until date of a company has passed or does not exist yet and they have been assigned a payment plan, they will also be prompted to make a payment as soon as they log in to Dealum and open their company from the home view. They will be notified about the required payment via a pop-up notification which will direct them to the payment process.

You will be able to see the paid until date of each company in the funnel view next to their application. The paid until date will be updated automatically for all companies who pay their fee via Stripe. You can also add the paid until date manually or edit it for any company. Similarly to member payments, paid until dates that have passed and have not been updated will turn red in the companies list.
