What is a Merchant of Record?

Merchant of Record manages financial transactions related to selling products or services. This includes accepting payments, verifying customer information, processing transactions, handling refunds and chargebacks, and taxes.

Is Checkout Page a Merchant of Record?

No, Checkout Page is not a Merchant of Record. We believe your customers should be yours — not those of the platform. We don’t get between you and your payment service provider, which, in this case, is Stripe.

When using Checkout Page, you are the Merchant of Record and you are responsible for collecting and remitting taxes based on your location.
