Change the owner for a Stripe account

How do I transfer ownership of my Stripe account to someone else? What if they don’t have a Stripe account yet? What if the owner left the company?

There are a number of ways that the current owner of a Stripe account can transfer ownership to someone else:

Transfer account ownership to an existing Administrator
Transfer account ownership to a current user on the account who doesn’t have Administrator permissions
Transfer ownership to an individual who doesn’t yet have any access to the Stripe account

Only the current owner of a Stripe account can transfer ownership away from themselves. If that person is no longer with the company, reach out to Stripe Support for help.

If you only want to change the email address on your Stripe account, see Change the email address associated with your account.
