Supported Integrations

Hourfleet depends on one mandatory third-party integration (Stripe), and supports a number of optional online services.

In all cases, configuring this integration requires you to

  1. Sign in to your account with the integraton provider
  2. Create Restricted API keys - one Publishable and the other Secret
  3. Send those API keys to and then delete any reference to these keys from your computer. Remember to check your email’s ‘Sent Items’ too.


You will need a Stripe account to properly operate an Hourfleet Car Share. If you don’t alread have a Stripe account you’ll need to register one. If you need to register we recommend you take some time to learn about Stripe.

The next step is to configure your Hourfleet Car Share with your Stripe API keys.

This enables your Hourfleet tenancy to bill your customers when they use your car sharing service, and it enables your customers to capture their credit card information in your Car Share.

IMPORTANT: If you do not configure yiour Hourfleet Car Share correctly with your Stripe information, your customers will experience errors when they try to register their user accounts, and provide credit card information.

From your Stripe Dashboard, click Developers, then API Keys, and then + Create restricted key

Give the key the name Hourfleet. All your permissions should be showing None. Go through and check each of the permissions shown as needing Read and write as shown below.
