Account types

There are a variety of ways to integrate Connect. Depending on who’s
getting paid out, we have three flexible account options to support them.

Standard

For platforms supporting independent businesses who benefit from having a full Stripe account, such as an e-commerce platform.

Express

For platforms looking to onboard recipients quickly and at scale, such as an on-demand marketplace.

Custom

For platforms who want to completely customize the user experience, including the onboarding, dashboard, and reporting UIs.

Empower your sellers
with complete access to
Stripe’s dashboard

STANDARD

Standard lets you connect your platform to new or existing Stripe accounts, using Stripe’s dashboard and onboarding flows.

It’s the best option if your sellers need the power and flexibility provided by the full Stripe dashboard. Such sellers are typically individuals or businesses who are savvy with online commerce.

It’s easy to get going with Connect Standard—all you have to do is implement an OAuth integration with Stripe and then you and your sellers can begin processing payments.
