Ruby on Rails – Stripe Connect Marketplace – Initial Project Setup – Part 2

Hi, My name is Andy Leverenz and I work as a product designer and developer. For fun, I design, code, and write. Check out my blog called Web-Crunch where I publish design and development tutorials with the occasional vlog.


Welcome to another installment of my Let’s Build: With Ruby on Rails series. This series focuses on building a marketplace application using Stripe Connect. Users can sign up, purchase, and sell their own goods and services while the application takes a percentage of each transaction.

Our fictitious marketplace app is called Back My Idea. Back my Idea is an app similar to GoFundMe and Kickstarter where users can crowdsource/fund their way to building their next big idea. Entrepreneurs/Designers/Developers can pitch their concept of an app and ask for donations to help fund their process of building it.
