Friend "afterpay" is disable but shouldn't be

Recommended Posts


Edit: He spoke with customer service from Stripe and with a few business verification he changed the MCC and he can now enable afterpay! It's not squarespace or stripe, it's afterpays restriction on which business gets afterpay enabled.

Just posting for a friend, he's just in the middle of building a paint supply business and he confirmed with Stripe that his MCC is Paints, Varnishes, and Supplies 5198. This isn't in the "restricted business" list (https://stripe.com/en-au/afterpay-clearpay/legal#restricted-businesses) and should be able to activate afterpay in squarespace.

How come afterpay can not activated? He has spoken to stripe and they advised they can not say or not say which MCC is in the approved or restricted list.

He meets the afterpay criteria, Australia, site is in AUD, stripe is in AUD, sells physical products...... Squarespace FAQ state its stripe that determines if afterpay gets activated based on MCC. Also stripe chat said it's the MCC not the individual business

What's going on?
