Stripe now lets marketplaces onboard new sellers in less than 2 minutes

With “express” accounts, Stripe is using automation to fast-track signups, as it’s significantly faster than manually having to call-up sellers to verify their identity, for example. Stripe is adamant that it’s not cutting corners, and says the onboarding process still fully takes into account the local considerations specific to each seller’s market.

Express also offers sellers a pre-built dashboard with easy access to information like how much money they’ve earned and when they can expect payment.

Express is aimed at sellers who are perhaps less ecommerce savvy and who don’t need full access to the broader Stripe service.

  • Express solves two problems:

1, it removes friction for sellers — whether they’re drivers, merchants, or anything else — who are signing up. With most of our beta users, sellers were able to sign up in under two minutes.

  1. Express offloads to Stripe all the undifferentiated yet onerous engineering work of building an onboarding UI.”

In addition to “express,” Stripe is also rolling out a new payment routing infrastructure to cater to different kinds of marketplaces

Marketing technology landscape

This visual graphic is very useful for me.  Technology impacts hugely on marketing activities, this article gives me an answer of how much influence and how many tools reshape the marketing activities.

I keep it on my blog. Once I need it, this graph can give me many inspirations on marketing.  I use some marketing tools, but it looks there are over 5000 tools.

" This platformization of marketing is that marketers are able to more easily build best-of-breed marketing stacks. Instead of choosing suite or best-of-breed, many marketers are now taking a suite and best-of-breed approach — using the suites as digital marketing hubs and then augmenting them with a range of more specialized products to bake their own, special marketing and customer experience cake."

The art of thinking

“The goal of strategic thinking is to find strategic insights. Strategy is all about choices — about which markets to compete in and which markets to avoid. Strategic insights describe the boundaries separating attractive markets from unattractive markets"

good strategic thinking sacrifices breadth for depth
