Stripe Standard Connect vs Stripe Express Connect
Prior to Jan 5th, 2021, merchants were required to use Stripe Standard Connect. This was an independent Stripe account that the merchant had to create at www.stripe.com prior to signing up with Partial.ly.
With Stripe Express Connect, merchants create their Stripe account within the Partial.ly portal. This stripe account will be used solely for Partial.ly payments. Instead of needing to sign into www.stripe.com, you will be able to manage and view all payment and payout activity within your Partial.ly account.
I already use Stripe Standard Connect with Partial.ly. Do I need to switch?
No, merchants who started using Partial.ly prior to Jan 5th, 2021 can continue to use Stripe Standard Connect. However, if for some reason you disconnect your Standard account from Partial.ly, you will then be required to create an Express account.
I'm new and use a standard account for other checkout options on my site, can I keep using it?
Yes, you can continue to use your standard Stripe account for other checkout option. Your Stripe Express account will only be used with Partial.ly orders.
