You can require your guests to pay for their chum around when they make their booking.

If you decide you’d like to get paid by your guests before you meet, you can quickly connect the Stripe payment gateway to your account. It takes just a few minutes to open a Stripe account and then connect it to your listing. You can then transfer your earnings directly to any bank account you’ve added to your Stripe account.

To connect your new listing to your Stripe account:

(1) Go to Your Dashboard
(2) Select the My Listings Tab
(3) Locate the Listing
(4) Click the Manage Listing Icon
(5) Click the Payment Settings Tab
(6) Click Connect Stripe
(7) Login or Sign up for Stripe
(8) Click Save

When you ask your guest to prepay for your chum around, booking will work like this:

(1) The guest will visit your booking page.
(2) The guest will select the number of hours you agreed to meet.
(3) The guest will complete the registration form.
(4) The guest will be directed to a payment page where they can pay for the agreed hours.
(4) The guest will be directed to his/her booking page where they can print their reservation.
(5) The guest will present their reservation to you when you meet.
