Can I link my own Stripe account?

In addition to creating a new Stripe account for your organization, you can also link an existing Stripe account to your RallyUp account. This will allow you to receive funds raised on your experience directly into your bank account. Create a new Stripe account or link an existing Stripe account when you register your organization or access the funding option in your RallyUp account. (Please note that this account is with Stripe, not RallyUp. Thus, the terms of this account are negotiated with Stripe, not RallyUp. When a Stripe account is linked, all payments go through this Stripe account. The funds are not routed through RallyUp at any point.)
