What is Stripe?
Stripe is one of the leading, most secure payment processors on the market today. Castiron uses Stripe to process all payments that come through the platform and help seamlessly transfer money to Castiron artisans just 1-2 days after a purchase is made.
Stripe charges a fee per transaction of 2.9% + $0.30. This fee is automatically passed through to the end customer at checkout - Artisans do not get charged directly for their use of Stripe.
You can sign up through Stripe as an Individual or a Business. Individual sign-up will require Social Security # verification and Business sign-up will require your EIN number. These are used to verify your identity and or business entity.
