Domain verification during Stripe account application

If Stripe needs to confirm ownership or control over the website that was submitted with you Stripe account application, we will send you an email on your website’s domain with a link you will need to click on as well as a dashboard notification that says:

To verify your control over your domain, we need to confirm that you can receive email at [your website]. Get started.

Clicking on Get started will allow you to send an email to an email address on your website’s domain. You will not be able to send an email to any other domain. For example, if your website is, you cannot verify ownership by sending an email to an email address.

Additional Information

  • If you are not able to receive email on your website’s domain, contact Stripe support and we can look into alternative ways to verify that you own your website.

  • If you are not able to verify that you own the website linked to your Stripe account, Stripe might pause your transfers until this verification is resolved.
