Do I need a Stripe account?

You will need a Stripe account to offer readers a premium subscription in beehiiv. We do not integrate with any other platforms at this time. If you don’t offer a premium subscription for your newsletter, you will not need to connect Stripe. 

beehiiv will integrate with your Stripe account to process any payments that come from your premium newsletter subscriptions. 

You can find this integration within your beehiiv account here: SettingsPublicationPremium (tab) → Pricing (section)
