It is important to keep in mind that:
- In some cases, Stripe will ask for information about the account representative. If this is the case you can indicate it is either a personal business or a company. For most cases, the first option suits best. Only mark the option of a company if you are legally registered with the corresponding taxing/commerce authority as a studio, record label, or similar in your country since stripe will ask for the legal document for verification.
- The first payment may stay on hold on your Stripe account for some days before it drops in your bank account. Next payments will drop after 24 hours.
