External bank account deposit via Stripe



My goal is to create a system for accepting donations on a platform similar to Twitch, and I aim to utilize the payment processing service provided by Stripe.

Having conducted numerous searches, I am aware that it is necessary to link an external account for each streamer who wishes to receive donations.

I am unable to include an external account due to the following message:

The provided key ‘rk_live_********************2TSc’ lacks the necessary permissions for this endpoint on the ‘acct_***************d’ account. Despite being a restricted
API key
, the required permissions are unavailable for use by limited keys.

Do I possess the necessary proficiency to operate an “External Account”? Could you lend me a hand with this message, please?

and have limited permissions. Instead, you must utilize your secret key that starts with


. You can access this key from your dashboard by visiting:

The link to access your API keys can be found on your Stripe account dashboard at https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/apikeys.
