setup Stripe merchant account without a company

I have a saving bank account in Australia and would like to link it with Stripe, so I can sell online and receive payment worldwide. Is it possible to create a Stripe account if I havent registered any company yet at the moment.  TQ

So far as I know you can do what you want.


One of my not-for-profit companies has a regular savings account for US currency and it works for electronic deposits to the account.

I have never used strip.  It does show that as long as you can set up in your home country, you can accept from around the world and Australia is good https://stripe.com/global

You do not have to be a business, a sole proprietorship works fine https://support.stripe.com/questions/i-have-a-product-i-d-like-to-sell-but-i-haven-t-created-a-separate-legal-entity-f
