"Help! I think my button is broken - I can't accept payments, nothing happens when the button is clicked."

The most common reason for this is that your account in Stripe is "Pending Review":

Pending:

Pending means the account is being reviewed by Stripe. This occurs when:

  • Stripe is verifying the information that was provided, such as an ID document upload.
  • Stripe is performing a watchlist check against a list of prohibited individuals and businesses.
  • Stripe is reviewing the account for suspected fraudulent activity.

Payouts can be enabled or disabled for accounts with a pending status. When payouts are disabled, no action is required by you. Stripe automatically updates the account’s status once the review is finished.

Enabled:

Enabled means the account is in good standing, though additional information might be required if another payment volume threshold is reached. Hovering over the status badge displays:

  • What information Stripe might request in the future.
