How do I set up my account to get paid?

Setting up your captain account is essential to ease with working with Boatsetter. Boatsetter pays captains for charters through direct deposit, via Stripe. Stripe requires that we validate the captain's identity in order to fulfill a requirement set forth by the IRS and to send payment for the charters.

There are four easy steps to setting up your payment account:

1. Finish setting up your account, by adding your birthday, first and last name, and phone number.

2. Add your bank account information, in your payout preferences.

3. Fill out the tax form.

4. Send a picture of your photo ID to Boatsetter Support at This is required to receive payment. The ID will be uploaded and scanned by Stripe to verify the information provided.
