For a detailed comparison of Standard vs Express see here: https://stripe.com/docs/connect/accounts
In most cases, or if you are not sure, we recommended using “Standard” option.
The “Express” option should only be used if you have done your research, and have a good reason for using it.
Some of the main differences when using Stripe Payouts with Coupon Affiliates are the following:
|Stripe Dashboard||The affiliate user will use the full default Stripe dashboard to manage their connect account and view payments etc.||The affiliate user will use a more user friendly and lighter “express” dashboard to manage their connect account and view payments etc.|
|Fees||No additional fees.||Monthly fee per active affiliate account.|
|Limitations||Less limitations.||Limited to certain countries.|
|Account losses covered by Stripe||Yes||No|
