    Hi,

    I just want to warning the community about stripe as a payement option. I just got an e-mail and they don't want to give my monney until I prove I've the right to sell my Star Wars item. I've a dropshipping site about star wars and ofc it's aliexpress stuff so I didn't get the Disney green light.

    Don't use them at all please. We need to fight these practices. I switched to paypal.

    If you had read their TOS this wouldn't have happened to you.

    This is 100% your fault. Don't blame the company and try to get people not to use them bc you made a dumb mistake.

    And btw, PP is even worse than Stripe, especially for dropshipping.

    Oh please.

    When you sign up for a payment processor, the first thing you do is look at the TOS. These people are handling your money. You should know if your business is allowed and what happens if you get caught before you sign up to use them.

    https://stripe.com/us/prohibited-businesses

    It says right there that copyrighted material is prohibited from being bought and sold using their platform.

    It's easily accessible from the TOS page. I found it in less than a minute.

    Again, this is 100% your fault.

    I'm hardly angry sugar.

    OP needs to put the blame where it belongs. It's not with Stripe.

    This.

    I'm pretty anal when it comes to setting up with a payment processor and look for that before anything at all.

    @dub28 - the heads up is appreciated and this thread serves the community in the form of education as well as instruction when you set up with a payment processor.

    It does suck that they are holding your money as I've not ever had that particular issue with Stripe and I use them for things that might be on the edge at times.

    I think they only do it in cases like this.

    This is a Disney product. Stripe isn't going to risk the Happiest Lawyers on Earth coming after them.

    Read the TOS people.
