Stand out in the Stripe Partner Ecosystem by achieving Specializations. This is the highest achievement a partner can earn with Stripe. As a Specialized partner, you’ve demonstrated excellence in your field and have a proven track record of success with Stripe products and solutions. Both Consulting and Technology partners can achieve multiple Specializations. Specialized partners are eligible to receive enhanced benefits, incentives, and recognition.
Specialization categories include the following examples (not inclusive of all). Stay tuned for more Specialization categories in the future.
|Stripe Products (Payments, Connect, more…)||Product mastery and proven customer success with Stripe products (for example, Payments, Connect, Billing, Invoicing, Issuing, and Terminal).|
|Stripe + ERP (SAP)||Proven track record of customer success in integrating Stripe to ERP applications and business processes (for example, SAP).|
|Stripe + CRM (Salesforce)||Proven track record of customer success in integrating Stripe to CRM applications and business processes (for example, Salesforce).|
|Stripe + ecommerce Salesforce (Adobe)||Proven track record of customer success in integrating Stripe to e-commerce applications and business processes (for example, Salesforce or Adobe).|

- Maintain a minimum of four Stripe certified (architect or developer) full time employees
- Submit one public and Stripe specific customer success story related to the Specialization category
