Accessing your Stripe Dashboard

Now you’ve created and/or linked your Stripe account, you will likely wish to access it. To do this, go to Tools / API connections and click Access your Stripe dashboard (as below).

If it’s the first time you’re accessing your Stripe dashboard, we’ll ask you to enter a 4 digit PIN (as below). This will provide an extra layer of security for your Stripe account, and if you share your ClassFit account with multiple users, allow you to continue doing that, while limiting access to your Stripe account.

Once you’ve created your PIN, you will need to enter this in the future when you access your Stripe dashboard (as below).
