Thank you for your interest in becoming a snow shoveler using Shovler!
Below outlines the four steps to enable you to accept snow removal jobs on Shovler. You need to sign up using Stripe so that payment can be made straight to you from the user’s credit card. Stripe is the same platform that many other similar services like Lyft use to process their payments. (Please note thatStripe requires a very complex password for account security. We have found that only a password such as 5Blue2Gr$$n!! works.)
Signing up is extremely easy and straightforward and you will be accepted onto the platform instantly. You need to have a bank/checking account that you can link to your Stripe account so that you can get paid!
IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT YOU FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY OR YOU WILL RISK NOT GETTING PAID.
- On your Stripe dashboard, switch the yellow switch from Test to Live.
2. Fill out required information from Stripe including your bank account information.
NEW STRIPE REQUIREMENT: When setting up your account, you must also link at least one of your social media profiles to the account! This is extremely important so that Stripe knows their customer.
3. Locate and copy your Live Secret Key in Stripe.
Double check that you are using the correct API Key. It should be the Live Secret Key, NOT the Live Publishable Key!
Make sure there are no blank spaces before or after the Key that you input.
4. Paste your Live Secret Key from Stripe into Shovler.
Hopefully this process went smoothly for you.
If you have any questions or issues please feel free to email us at admin at shovler.com or reach out to Stripe directly if you have any questions about their platform.
