Thousands of platforms and marketplaces use Stripe Connect to facilitate payments and pay out recipients. Using Connect with Standard accounts is already the fastest way to enable your customers to accept payments directly, while relying on Stripe to manage onboarding, reporting, and loss liability. Now you can manage more features on behalf of your connected accounts with platform controls.
Configuring platform controls
Visit your Connect settings page, where you’ll see a Manage button next to the Standard account type.
Clicking Manage redirects you to the platform controls page.
Select the options for your connected accounts there. These options apply to all of your new connected accounts moving forward. Visit the connected accounts page to change settings for individual connected accounts.
Control payout timing
You can also initiate payouts on behalf of your connected accounts programmatically using the Stripe API or via the Dashboard. Within Connect Settings > Standard > Platform Controls, you can decide whether connected accounts can manage their own payout schedules or if you would like to manage their payout schedule on their behalf. Connected accounts can still make manual payouts even when you, as the platform, decide to restrict connected accounts from updating their own payout schedule.
If you need full control over your connected accounts’ payouts and want to restrict your connected accounts from being able to make their own payouts, contact us with a detailed description of your use case.
Access consolidated reporting
You can access reporting across all connected accounts that you control using the built in-Dashboard reporting as well as within Stripe Sigma, a custom reporting solution that makes all of your data available as an interactive SQL environment in the Dashboard. To learn more:
Co-brand your connected account experience
As the platform, you can manage your brand settings within the Connect Settings > Branding section. All new accounts onboarding to your platform will see your icon and branding color in their dashboard. To understand changes for connected accounts, see this Support article.
These features apply only to new accounts onboarding to your platform, denoted by
true in the
is_controller property for the Account object. Existing accounts aren’t eligible for these features.
From the connected account details page in your Dashboard, click the overflow menu () and choose Remove account. This action disconnects the account and revokes access in the same way as the OAuth de-authorize endpoint. Removing an account from your platform resets any platform controls (such as payout timing) you’ve configured for the connected account. If the account reconnects later, prior platform controls aren’t reinstated.
