November 2017

🚀 New feature: Holding funds and delaying payments
For transactions processed by Stripe, payouts to sellers are delayed until after the item or service has been delivered. The buyer still makes the payment ahead of time, but Stripe will hold this money on behalf of the marketplace and will pay it out automatically once the conditions of the transaction are met.
