I am building a marketplace and am looking for a method to process transactions whilst taking a fee, I am based in the UK. I have tried to use stripe connect, however this requires sellers to sign up which is quite complicated. Is there a simpler method? Something like paypal would be ideal.
I would be grateful for a step by step process on how to do this. Ideally, the seller would not have to leave my marketplace. Any help is appreciated
They can add a product description instead or just your marketplace domain. I agree it’s a bit weird but If you just let the sellers know beforehand you should be ok. Even if you integrated PayPal, would it not be the same?
If that user is setting up the account to be used on your application, does Stripe not allow them to put your website address? Maybe even your address with the path to their page in your app?
Also, in regards to a frictionless experience for a seller to connect to a payments provider in order to sell products on your application, the need to follow the process in Stripe is not a deterrent for them to signup to your application. If you are asking them to connect at signup, don’t.
Get them signed up and in their user dashboard setup things for them to connect when they are ready. Any legitimate seller will take the time to follow the Stripe process. And you as the app owner would want them to so that you are not setting yourself up to be liable for damages when an unscrupulous seller commits fraud via your platform. Gotta follow the KYC regulations and Stripe handles that for you.
You should check out my course for integrating Stripe. It has everything you would need to have a complete integration.
