How do I open a STRIPE EXPRESS account, connected to the SCOTSY Stripe account?


SCOTSY currently uses STRIPE, a reputable, worldwide recognised Card Payment processor. The STRIPE account used is 'Stripe connect', which is designed for marketplaces like the SCOTSY art marketplace. 

You in turn need a 'Stripe Express', STRIPE account, which has a connection to the administrative SCOTSY Stripe payment account.
