Creating a business that needs to accept and pay out money between different parties is challenging. You could stitch together numerous third-party solutions to support all the things you need, like verifying recipients, whether they are sellers or service providers, routing payments and reconciliation and you’d still need to dedicate engineers to successfully integrate everything. But that might not be the best use of precious resources. And let’s not even get into how painful it is to go international. What you want is to focus on building your product and solving for what your customers need, not on payments infrastructure. That’s why we built stripe Connect. Connect is software that makes it easy for businesses to accept and pay out money to various parties. Get your recipients verified and signed up quickly and easily, you control the experience from end to end.
