Stripe Atlas Guides
We are excited to share Stripe Atlas guides to running an internet business—a library of authoritative, actionable guidance for starting and scaling a company.
Stripe Atlas is developed to make it easier for entrepreneurs to start companies. As Stripe worked with founders, They realized that many of the mechanics of building a business are opaque, poorly documented, and difficult to get a straight answer on. With the Stripe Atlas guides, they decoding these business mechanics—from bookkeeping and taxes to pitching investors—all in one place.

| Q: Does the Silicon Valley based bank allow one to have credit/debit card along with the account, or connect it with paypal? - and if it is a Debit/Credit card - is that shipped to a person, and are there costs involved with that?
A: Yes, Atlas users get a debit card from Silicon Valley Bank. The shipping cost is included in the Atlas fee. Users also have seamless access to Stripe payment products as needed.
| Q: Is the $25 per month fee paid forever, while you have an active account through you, and does that amount increase or decrease over time based on certain criteria etc? - Maybe some background info on that would be great.
A: The $25 per month fee is set, but many companies, as they grow, work directly with SVB account managers to use the banking products and rates that make the most sense for their given stage.
