Stripe Connect integration

The Stripe Connect integration is a payment solution for marketplaces to automatically pay their vendors.

Whenever the marketplace needs to pay its vendors, Garnet will initiate a Stripe payment from the marketplace account to the vendor account.

The payout events can be customised within Garnet to suit your marketplace needs.

Note that Garnet only facilitates the payment and is never holding the customer's money at any time.


Stripe is not available in some countries, make sure to check their availability page.


When customers buy products and services on a marketplace, the marketplace collects the payment. After a set number of dats, the marketplace pays back the vendor's order minus the commission taken by the marketplace.

payout process

Garnet's integration with Stripe Connect automated the payout from the marketplace to vendors. When Garnet initiates the payment, the money will end up in the vendor's bank account minus a transfer fee taken by Stripe. Check Stripe's pricing page for more details.

Note that the marketplace and the vendors need a Stripe account to use Stripe Connect.
