Stripe will offer bank accounts, with help from Goldman Sachs and Citi

Online payments giant and Cash App owner Stripe is stepping into a new realm of financial services for vendors.

Per a Wall Street Journal exclusive on Thursday, Stripe is looking to offer customers bank accounts and debit cards. However, these financial products will be limited to vendors and merchants for now.

Last year, Stripe made headlines for seeing valuation of $35 billion following a funding round.
