For use in FL3XX, a new dedicated Stripe account must be created within FL3XX Stripe wholesale environment.

We're gradually launching Stripe payment integration in 2024. Initially, we're onboarding a few selected FL3XX users in beta mode. Then, we'll invite a broader audience, and add more features with Stripe, too.

  • Stripe via FL3XX will be available for users in these regions:
    Canada, EEA, Switzerland, UK, USA
  • Stripe via FL3XX will support account currencies:
    CAD, EUR, CHF, GBP, USD
    Sales in other currencies will be converted to one of the currencies above.
  • Default cards: Amex, Mastercard, Visa
  • Enabling this service is subject to FL3XX's and Stripe's approval.
  • Using this service is subject to the Stripe Services Agreement.
  • Your current FL3XX subscription plan is to be amended to include Stripe.
