Website requirement to use Stripe

We are obligated by our financial partners to confirm that we’ve verified what our users’ businesses actually are, and that they’re not, for example, engaging in a business that is either illegal or prohibited by our (or our bank’s) terms of service.

A resolvable URL for a working website is an easy, direct way to get at this information, since it’s where most web businesses show consumers what it is that they actually do and sell, but we can verify this by other means. If you don’t have a website for your business, or something on the web that shows what it is exactly you’re accepting money for, feel free to reach out to us to see if there are other alternatives you can provide.
