Did you pay to become Stripe Verified Partner?

Hi everybody!

I'm Marie, co-founder of Tally (the simplest way to build forms, for free).

We offer payment forms to our users with a Stripe integration. I was looking into becoming a Stripe verified partner to get listed in the partner gallery (and reach new customers).

To become a verified partner Stripe asks for an annual fee of $250. Did anyone join the partner program and would you recommend it?

    I was interested but Stripe couldn’t really explain the benefits to me or provide even an estimate of the traffic and sales I could expect from the listing so I didn’t bother.

      Thanks for sharing Kyle!

    Hey @MarieMartens - would love an update! Did you end up joining the partner program. We're on the fence as well with our company, Sync Inc.

      Hi Eric, we didn't do it in the end. Might still change our mind in the future, but I was not convinced that it would be a great lead source..

        Thanks for closing the loop. Tally looks fantastic! Keep it going 🙌

    I've been thinking about the same for my App, So also keen to hear on the experiences of others.

    My service is free so the $250 a year is a bit much. Although I do plan to add a pro plan in the future.

    I'm torn between just doing it and holding off.

      Hi David, same here! We launched our Pro plan, but doubting as well
