You can collect payments from your subscribers by first setting up a free Stripe merchant account, and then integrating it with Beam in your Account settings. The subscriber can pay with standard credit/debit card, Apple Pay, or Google Pay, and funds are delivered instantly to your Stripe account. You can charge subscribers directly over text through the following methods below.
1. Setting up a Paid newsletter: If you want your subscribers to pay for access to your text message blasts, your media content, 1-on-1 chatting, and other subscriber benefits that you offer in your newsletter, you can use the Paid newsletter feature to charge a monthly or annual subscription directly in your Newsletter Settings. This can be offered alongside a free newsletter for your subscribers, or you can also offer your subscribers a custom free trial, so that they can access your content for a set period of time before they're automatically converted into a paying subscriber. In your subscriber list, you'll be able to see who's paying a recurring something from you via a keyword and target these subscribers accordingly.
2. CreaTE single charges by using keywords: You can set up keywords that will trigger a one-time payment for a subscriber. This is great for selling a specific product, like a PDF guide, E-Book, or other digital asset. For creators, startups, and nonprofits, you can collect tips, fundraiser contributions, or donations for charity. In your subscriber list, you'll be able to see who has purchased something from you via a keyword and target these subscribers accordingly.
