What if I like to integrate other Stripe payments to my marketplace instead?

You may utilise any of Stripe payments products on your marketplace.

Do remember to turn off the default Stripe Connect integration because you do so to avoid confusion.

What if I want all payments to come to the Marketplace Administrator and then for the Administrator to pay out to the Merchants later?

That would be possible if you as the Marketplace Administrator would like to be the "Merchant-on-Record", where all the funds go to you as the Administrator and for you to make manual payments to your merchants.  To do that, you would be required to use the Stripe Checkout product which is not pre-integrated with Arcadier. You will need to engage an Arcadier Expert Partner to utilise Arcadier's Custom Payment feature to integrate into Stripe Checkout.

Please do note that if you like to have all the payments flow to you as the Marketplace Administrator, you will need to do manual payouts to your merchant's bank account yourself thereafter.
