Help Setting Up Your Stripe Account

Below are answers to most frequently asked questions from organizers connecting to Stripe to sell tickets online:

 

Can I use Stripe as an Individual or Sole Proprietor?

Yes,  you can certainly use Stripe as a sole proprietor/individual.

 

Why is Stripe asking me for an EIN/SSN?

Stripe is required to collect and verify identity of individuals associated with a Stripe account. This is intended to promote transparency and prevent individuals from using Stripe for illegal activities.

 

What should I use for my website in Stripe if I do not have one?

To complete activation of your account, Stripe needs to check what you are accepting money for.  If you do not have a website or social profile advertising your event, we recommend using your Ticketstripe event page.
