Merchant Account Number or Merchant ID for Seller's Permit Applications

Question

I need to provide a merchant account number to obtain a seller’s permit or license. What is my merchant ID?

Answer

Stripe does not expose merchant accounts and often the merchant ID isn’t necessary to complete an application.

If you are prompted for a merchant ID or merchant account number while filling out a permit or license application, you should leave the field blank or enter your email address in that field.

If you have tried leaving the field blank and tried entering your email address but cannot submit your application that way, email Stripe Support.
