What should I use for my website in Stripe if I do not have one?
To complete activation of your account, Stripe needs to check what you are accepting payments for. If you do not have a website or social profile advertising your event, we recommend using your Ticketstripe event page. You can get as well as customize a link to your event page from the Links & Widgets section within your Ticketstripe dashboard.
