Selling on Stripe Without a Separate Business Entity

Question

Do I need a separate business entity, like an LLC or Corporation designation, to sell a product on Stripe?

Answer

You can use Stripe to sell a product if you have not established a separate business entity to do so. Stripe supports the following alternative business types that you can choose from when signing up:

  • Sole proprietorship: If you do not have a separate entity and operate by yourself.

  • Partnership: If you do not have a separate entity and operate with others.
