In most cases, the account approval 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 you immediately.
Businesses on our Restricted Business list commonly experience longer processing delays. 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.
If you are not sure if your business falls into the categories listed there, reach out to Stripe Support.
