Stripe Connect

Everything marketplaces and platforms need to get users paid.

With Connect, Squarespace makes
it simple for website creators
to become online businesses.

Multi-party payments

All the tools you need to run a marketplace: Stripe helps with identity verification, tax reporting, and more.

Full control

Stripe does the heavy lifting while giving you control of everything from the UI to the timing of transfers

Going global

Your platform can support sellers anywhere Stripe operates (25 countries, more coming this year).

Scalable and trusted

Platforms and marketplaces of every kind use Stripe to manage billions of dollars in payments each year.

Learn more about getting started with Stripe Connect and adding payments to your platform.

Easy setup for sellers and contractors

Use Connect to spin up accounts and enable payments for your sellers, vendors,
contractors, or fleet—with as much custom control over the experience as you’d like.

Instacart and Kickstarter sport lightweight signup flows for
getting drivers or crowdfunding campaigns set up.

Lightweight setup

Connect your platform to thousands of
existing Stripe sellers, or create new accounts
with just an email address. We only need
more details when it’s time to deposit funds.

Custom flows for sellers

Alternatively, you can have sellers provide
payment info in your app, and you manage
their accounts entirely via the API. Stripe
stays out of the way.

Secure bank transfers

Sellers can connect to your platform via
OAuth, or you can collect their bank account
details securely with Stripe.js—sensitive data
never hits your servers.

Feature-packed payments

Connect is tightly integrated with the rest of Stripe—everything you need to let
customers pay for purchases from around the world, either online or in mobile apps.

APIs for every business model

You can process subscriptions, store multiple cards per customer, enable one-tap payments and Apple Pay, and much more.

The best checkout for buyers

Long checkout pages should be long gone. Checkout and Stripe.js let customers buy securely in a few taps.

Local currencies

Increase conversions and let sellers accept payments in
100+ currencies—even Bitcoin. Sellers receive their earnings in their local currency.

Custom statement descriptors

No more inscrutable credit card charges for customers. You can customize the text on card statements on a per-seller (and per-charge) basis.

Lyft and Shyp let customers save their credit cards and
pay drivers with a card on file.

Go international

Connect lets your platform support sellers in any of the countries where Stripe is

International seller verification

Paying sellers involves observing
different laws in each country. Share
simple details about your recipients
and we’ll help them get paid.

Optimized for everywhere

Behind a unified API, Stripe uses local
currencies, local bank networks, and
local identity verification to help you
deliver the best product—

Flexible transfers

Connect lets your platform customize complex flows that span multiple customers,
sellers, and anyone else who needs to get paid as part of your business.

Fully customize payout timing

Let Stripe automate transfers to sellers or customize payment schedules. And you can give sellers true flexibility and control over when earnings are deposited with instant payouts.

Route funds as they come in

Your platform’s accounting just got much easier. You can now link a charge with a recipient as it comes in, and Stripe can help handle everything downstream.

Simplifying how sellers get paid

Charge and manage payments in a single API call:

curl \
  -u sk_test_BQokikJOvBiI2HlWgH4olfQ2: \
  -d destination=acct_1032D82eZvKYlo2C \
  -d amount=500 \
  -d currency=usd \
  -d customer=cus_AgWlt8e1vvsQNp \
  -d application_fee=100

Manage your platform

Stripe gives you the tools to help run every aspect of your business.

Everything in a central dashboard

View and manage all incoming
payments, customers, outbound
transfers, and chargeback claims
right from the Dashboard.

Common processes, automated

Webhooks let your platform handle
asynchronous events in your sellers'
accounts like failed transfers or
prompts for ID verification.

Rich third-party add-ons

Extend the features you offer your
sellers with integrations and add-ons
built for platforms.

Tax reporting

Where necessary, Stripe helps you
generate the right tax documents for
your sellers.

Connect pricing

Accepting payments on behalf of standalone accounts costs 2.9% + 30¢. This includes
support for international sellers, compliance, and tax reporting.

For an additional 0.5%, you can fully customize the seller experience and control the
timing of transfers with managed accounts. Learn more
