New Stripe Account Approval Process

Question

How long until my Stripe account is approved? How long does the application process take?

Answer

In most cases, this process is nearly instantaneous and most users will be able to accept payments right away.

If we need more information about a business or expect a longer delay in processing an account approval, we will reach out to the owner on the account right away.

Additional Information

  • If you are running a business that typically has trouble accepting payments online, we recommend reviewing our Restricted Businesses documentation prior to submitting your account application. Businesses on our Restricted Business list commonly experience longer processing delays. If you are not sure if your business falls into the categories listed there, reach out to Stripe Support.
