Dig deeper into each program benefit.
Develop solutions and services with Stripe.
Technical training and certification
Stripe provides training, instructor-led online events, and workshops for Stripe partners to gain architect and developer certifications. Partners signal their expertise within the Stripe Partner Ecosystem by being certified. Learn more about Stripe certification for partners.
Roundtables with product management
Stripe regularly hosts a series of invite-only roundtables and delivers online events with a select number of eligible partners to discuss the product roadmap. During these roundtables, partners can gain visibility into product plans, uncover industry trends, and understand Stripe’s go-to-market priorities.
Partners can draw from Stripe’s library of prebuilt solution blueprints that visually document and capture business requirements and map the end-state to different Stripe solutions. Stripe segments these blueprints across business models such as marketplaces, e-commerce and DTC, B2B SaaS, and embedded payments. Additionally, Stripe can provide blueprints for common third-party integrations such as CRM, ERP, and e-commerce platforms.
These assets can help partners present complex topics like money movement in multiple currencies across countries and provide clarity and value to your users.
Available to partners with an assigned Stripe partner development manager, you can use this fund to build solutions and support repeatable business cases. The investment fund has four general categories of business cases: competitive migrations, API modernization, pre-sales workshops, and proof of concepts.
If partners have unique ideas beyond these four business cases, they can reach out to their partner development manager to see if their concept qualifies for our investment fund.
Partners in the apps track have access to the Stripe Apps GitHub to submit tickets, track request progress, and engage with the apps technical teams.

Partners can request marketing advisory funds (MAF) to cover the cost of marketing activities recommended from the workshop.
Market development funds (MDF)
Partners can request MDF to help fund 50% of the cost of co-marketing activities that generate demand for their app, solution, or service. Examples of eligible activities include integrated marketing campaigns, paid media, and digital and in-person customer-facing events. To be eligible to request MDF, partners must be verified in the technology or services track and have an assigned Stripe partner development manager, or have achieved the growth milestone in the apps track.

Stripe partners can submit a referral to Stripe or they can co-sell with Stripe to close opportunities. You can use three channels for deal registration: submit referrals through the partner portal, bulk upload files with up to 50 leads, or register deals through an ungated lead form.
Partners can also track the progress of a deal through the partner portal.
