Looks like an issue with Indian stripe accounts. On my thread I’ve posted about a particular endpoint failing. My guess is that some validation logic is failing, but without looking at the code, I’m unable to say what’s going on.
Well, I tried Sharing detailed analysis to issue this problem with my developer console step by step, it got removed by the moderation team saying it’s the same problem as this topic. I mean I mentioned more practical screenshots to be figured out by experts via the Drive link. How am I even supposed to get any solution if any topic just being 20-30% similar to mine gets unlisted.
Also, one thing to note is that Ghost comes under the list of approved applications in Stripe after authentication. So Stripe is completing their flow and able to approve Ghost, but somewhere it breaks at the Ghost’s end.
I’m grateful for your patience. Sorry for the wait. I was checking the current status of your Stripe account on our end, and I can confirm your account is fully verified. Having said that, your payouts, refunds, and charges are all enabled. Upon further review, your Stripe account is already integrated with the platform Ghost. Upon checking on the screenshot you’ve shared, it seems that the error occurred from the platform Ghost’s end. Looking into your request, it would be best to directly contact Ghost as they built their own integration with Stripe; hence they’ll be the best source of information to sort this out for you, and for further insight with the integration as well as the error message.
I truly understand your position about your concern and we acknowledge the importance of resolving it. With that being said, I took the initiative of getting Ghost’s support page for you to reach out to, and hopefully save you some time:

I am really confused about who to contact as they also forwarded me with response to contact ghost.
Update: Stripe is able to provide the Authorization Code back to Ghost. The error occurs after Ghost tries to use that Auth Code (along with state) to get the Account ID. The last step is what finalizes the connection but it fails with a timeout error of 2500 ms. I tried that with Postman too and the same error. They have their API call running via Netlify and error is coming from that. Some developers can check it out and rectify it, please.
Stripe (Preview) is definitely available in India. You can also accept international payment (in non INR currency) and within India you can accept payment in INR. You need to be a company or Sole Proprietor to accept international payment. You can register as Sole Proprietor and get your IEC from DGFT.
The only problem is that the integration between Ghost and Stripe is not available in India.
The other option is to opt for Stripe Atlas, and other some options to get an LLC in the states. But that comes at a cost. Quite a hefty for some bloggers.
