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.
For platforms supporting independent businesses who benefit from having a full Stripe account, such as an e-commerce platform.
For platforms looking to onboard recipients quickly and at scale, such as an on-demand marketplace.
For platforms who want to completely customize the user experience, including the onboarding, dashboard, and reporting UIs.
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.
Express includes a set of pre-built, co-branded flows for user onboarding, verification, reporting, and payouts management.
Express drastically reduces your time to market and ongoing maintenance burden, while still giving you the ability to exercise a high degree of control over the user experience.
Custom lets your platform build a complete experience for your users to your exact specifications. Custom offers all of Connect’s functionality in a flexible API, and enables you to build custom onboarding, verification and reporting UIs for your users.
