How do I set up Stripe as my Booking Payment Gateway?

If you don't already have one, you can create a free Stripe account. With Stripe, you are charged for online payments at 2.9% and $0.30 per transaction. 

To Set up Booking to use Stripe:

Important Note for users outside of the USA: You will want to set your currency in the Booking Settings BEFORE you do your payment gateway setup and your first test payment.
