It appears that Stripe will remain the sole payment processor for Locals communities. This is the rejection email I got from them when I tried to set up an account.

Hi Xxxxxx,

Thank you for completing our verification process. Unfortunately, we still won't be able to accept payments for moving forward.

Stripe can only support users with a low risk of customer disputes—after reviewing your submitted information and website, it does seem like your business presents a higher level of risk than we can currently support.

We're sorry that we can't offer ongoing service, and we wish you the best of luck with your business.



Stripe apparently is only interested in the low-hanging fruit. So if Stripe decides your new Locals community is "high-risk", you are screwed. You will not be able to monetize your community. There is no appeal.

I suggested that Locals add 2nd Amendment ...

View as I drove home from a neighboring town where my friend's home was saved twice- once last night when it came near her backyard and then again today when a hotspot by her house flared up. Grateful for firefighters and their work saving her home. Even during all this craziness there is much to be thankful for.
