Greetings, @ralphemerson.

Thank you for reaching out and posting this question!

I understand you're looking for a way to use your own Stripe account in the US. By default Stripe isn't an option in regions that are supported by Shopify Payments, as Shopify Payments is powered by Stripe. Since you've already got an established account with Stripe, it shouldn't be a problem for you as Stripe handles the reviews for holds and reserves. However, it's worth noting that Stripe does support more products types, so if you happen to be selling something that isn't supported on Shopify Payments - our Payments team can disable Shopify Payments on your store and allow you to continue with Stripe on your store. 

Since there aren't any transaction fees using Shopify Payments, would you like to start with Shopify Payments and see how it fits with your business?
