There are two components to a DropVendor Account:
- User Account
- Payment Account
Your User Account is the regular account created and accessed at DropVendor.com using your email and password login credentials. When you first sign up to DropVendor, you will be able to upload content to your File Store and set prices, but you won't be able to sell anything.
To begin actually selling your content through DropVendor, you'll need to configure your Payment Account.
Your Payment Account is where funds from your sales are held, until you issue a Payout to transfer funds to the Bank Account or Debit Card you added during the Payment Account setup process.
When you first create your User Account, you will not yet have a Payment Account. Your Payment Account is hosted by Stripe, a leading provider of secure online payment processing, and setup is accessed through your DropVendor account dashboard.
Creating your Payment Account takes less than five minutes: click the "Setup Payment Account" link in your User Account dashboard, and you will be redirected to the Stripe website and prompted to provide your name, email address, and cell phone number for 2-step verification using a text message code. After completing the 2-step verification process, you will be prompted to enter information to link your Bank Account or Debit Card to your Payment Account, so you can receive funds from your DropVendor sales.
After completing this Payment Account setup, you will be automatically redirected back to your DropVendor account dashboard and can start accepting payments immediately.
