Required Verification Information

    Learn what required verification information needs to be provided, by country, when using Connect.

    When building a Connect platform using Custom accounts, you'll need to collect the required verification information for each of your accounts, which varies by the Custom account's country. This information—listed below—is also available programmatically through the Country Specs API.

    As an added convenience, most parameters in the tables below are followed by a localized version, suitable as a label in your user interface.

    You can also download the requirements for every country we support as a CSV file, which you can then open in a spreadsheet.

    Additional verification requirements for: Japan

    Some merchants in this country may be required to provide the following additional fields depending on our ability to verify their identity. Some merchants are never asked for this information, even after processing considerable volume.

    Identity verification documents must have been issued in Japan and show the individual's residency status.

    Additional suggestions for: Japan

    Submitting account information for Japanese accounts is unique in that Stripe requires both kana and kanji name variations for a number of fields:

    • first_name_kana
    • first_name_kanji
    • last_name_kana
    • last_name_kanji
    • business_name_kana
    • business_name_kanji
    • address_kana
    • address_kanji
    • personal_address_kana
    • personal_address_kanji

    You need to submit information for these attributes instead of their non-variation counterparts (i.e., in lieu of first_name, last_name, etc.). It may seem counterintuitive to provide two fields that represent the same single attribute, but Stripe can't verify a Japanese account until we've received information for both variations. These variations may be composed of full or half-width hiragana, katakana, or Latin characters, with kanji attributes also allowing for kanji characters.

    Addresses in Japan

    The kana and kanji requirements extend to Japanese addresses as well.

    postal_code is always required when providing a Japanese address of either variation. Stripe validates submitted addresses, and for a valid postal_code, we attempt to automatically fill attributes for matching state, city, and town for both address_kana and address_kanji. Requests with address details that are incompatible with the provided postal_code fail.

    Here's an example representation of the following Japanese address, with explanations for how each part maps to its corresponding Stripe API attribute:

    // 〒150-0001 東京都渋谷区神宮前3-27-15 FLAG 3A
    {
      "country": "JP",
      "legal_entity": {
        "address_kana": {
          "country": "JP", // 2-letter country code
          "postal_code": "1500001", // Zip/Postal Code
          "state": "トウキヨウト", // Prefecture
          "city": "シブヤ", // City/Ward
          "town": "ジングウマエ 3-", // Town/cho-me
          "line1": "27-15", // Block/Building number
          "line2": "FLAG 3A", // Building details
        },
        "address_kanji": {
          "country": "JP", // 2-letter country code
          "postal_code": "1500001", // Zip/Postal Code
          "state": "東京都", // Prefecture
          "city": "渋谷区", // City/Ward
          "town": "神宮前 3丁目", // Town/cho-me
          "line1": "27-15", // Block/Building number
          "line2": "FLAG 3A", // Building details
        }
      }
    }
