Create an account

With Connect, you can create Stripe accounts for your users. To do this, you’ll first need to register your platform.

If you’ve already collected information for your connected accounts, you can prefill that information when creating the account. Connect Onboarding won’t ask for the prefilled information during account onboarding. You can prefill any information on the account.

Parameters

  • capabilitiesobjectRequired for custom accounts

    Each key of the dictionary represents a capability, and each capability maps to its settings (e.g. whether it has been requested or not).

An account may have some of its requested capabilities be active and some be inactive.

Available countries include Stripe’s global markets as well as countries where cross-border payouts are supported.

  • emailstring
