Social Insurance Number (SIN) / Numéro D'Assurance Sociale (NAS) Requirement for Canadian Businesses

Question

Why does Stripe require my Social Insurance Number (SIN) or Numéro d'assurance sociale (NAS) to sign up?

Answer

We require identification to confirm that you are a representative of the business for which you are filing the application. If you represent a Canadian business and do not feel comfortable providing your SIN or NAS, email Stripe Support and we can accept another form of government-issued identification.
