How to create a Stripe account and connect it to your shop

Stripe is vailable for businesses in 47 countries. Accept payments from anywhere in the world.
See the list of countries where you can open a business Stripe account

IMPORTANT!!! One Stripe account can only be associated with one store and platform. If you are opening another store (regardless of whether it is on the DIY Markt platform or on any other platform), you must create a new account on the same Stripe panel and then connect this new account to your second store. If you try to connect multiple stores or platforms to the same Stripe account, the Stripe payment system will automatically disconnect all stores from the payment system and you will not be able to accept payments.

For example, you have connected your Stripe account to shop “A” on the DIY Markt platform. If you open shop “B” on the DIY Markt platform (or on another platform), you must connect it to a different Stripe account than shop “A”.
