Starting on June 16, 2021, new Standard accounts will be platform controls enabled. This means that platforms will be able to apply a set of new controls on these Standard accounts.
Account holders will see the following notice in their Dashboard indicating that their account is platform controls enabled:
Connect platforms or marketplace can now manage additional settings on their Standard account's behalf. These include:
Creating new payouts on your behalf.
Updating your account’s payout schedule.
Adding their platform or marketplace's branding to your Dashboard. You might see the platform's brand color on the left side of the nav bar and their name and logo in the bottom left similar to the example below:
Account holders will also see the following changes to in their Stripe Dashboard:
You cannot disconnect the platform that administers your account.
You cannot create a Connect integration with the account. Please create a new Stripe account instead.
In the Authorized Applications page you will not be able to revoke access to the platform or marketplace that is managing your account.
Finally, if you would like to build a Stripe integration, we strongly recommend creating a new Stripe account instead of using API keys on the platform administered Standard account. You will see the following notice with this recommendation:
There are no restrictions to building a direct Stripe integration on your Standard account. However, due to the new controls, a platform may choose to manage account activity on your behalf in conflict with how you design your direct Stripe integration. We recommend starting fresh and using a new set of API keys to build your integration.
When can I expect to see these changes? Your Platform may choose to take these actions on your behalf at any point in time.
What if my Platform takes an action that I don’t expect? If you have concerns with an update that your Platform makes on your behalf, such as modifying your payout schedule, please reach out to your Platform.
How do I opt out of this change? This upgrade is the new recommended experience for Connect with Standard accounts. Your experience should not be impacted outside of the settings that the platform can now manage on your behalf. There are no changes to your Stripe login or access. If you would like an account without any platform management, we recommend creating a new account through the Dashboard. You can always switch between your accounts using the account switcher:
