How to Setup Online Payments With Sportamingo
By Matt Todaro
Founder, Head of Product
Sportamingo uses Stripe (view their website) to process credit card and ACH transactions on behalf of organizations using our platform.
We've partnered with Stripe for two reasons:
Stripe is the industry leader for secure payments processing. They are fully PCI compliant and the fact they process billions annually attests to the trust the industry has placed in the company.
Stripe provides superior reporting for taxes when compared to PayPal (which is, politely speaking, not adequate for mid-large clubs).
By the end of next club season Sportamingo will have processed over $100 million through Stripe on behalf of our users.

My Clubs and select the club you're working with.
If you're opening a club that has not already connected their Stripe account you will see the following screen:
Click either the
Connect an Existing Stripe Account button or the
Create a New Stripe Account button.
- If you will be creating a new account, be sure to have your organization's
bank account number,
routing number and
EIN or tax ID number handy as you'll need these for registration.
Complete the on-screen prompts on Stripe's website.

All funds that are processed by Sportamingo will be deposited directly into your Stripe account. We do not hold your funds until you request a payout.
After your organization has successfully linked their Stripe account to Sportamingo we'll send you to your club admin dashboard.
Please fill out the information contained within your
