Why does my SME (or larger) company need a Stripe account?

In order to make payment requests in a chat, and receive payments, you will need a Stripe account which is a one-time-only form that is found when you first try to take a payment. Once you have done this you have access to all the tools Stripe offers you as a member. It also verifies you as a real business that customers can immediately trust.
