Getting set up on Soda: Australia

If it's your Organisation's first time using Soda, you'll need to complete these key steps before you can successfully start selling gift vouchers in Australia: 

  • Set the account currency to AUD
  • Set up a Stripe Connect account (Soda has partnered with Stripe to process payments and issue payouts for voucher sales)

Once these steps have been taken, you will not need to repeat the process again unless you wish to use a separate bank account per venue in your organisation (this will require a separate Soda account and Stripe Connect account per venue). 

Creating an account on Soda

Collins users - when you click the Soda button on the DesignMyNight admin screen, a Soda account will automatically be created for your venue group, which all users in your venue group will have access to.

Tonic and/or Soda only users - the Soda team will need to set you up with an account on Soda. if you're not already in touch with a team member about this, please reach out to us on
