Jason Del Rey has been a business journalist for 15 years and has covered Amazon, Walmart, and the e-commerce industry for the last decade. He was a senior correspondent at Vox.

We’re less than a week away from Recode’s Code Commerce event, our annual two-day forum focused on innovations at the intersection of technology and retail.

And we have one more exciting addition to what is already an all-star lineup of speakers who will sit for our signature unscripted interviews on September 17 and 18 in New York City.

John Collison co-founded the startup Stripe in 2010 with his brother Patrick, and the pair have built it into arguably the most innovative online payments company in the world, valued on paper at $9 billion.

Over the last few years, Stripe has displayed even broader ambition: Introducing new products to help internet businesses do everything from incorporate to, most recently, create their own payment cards. Stripe’s acquisition of the startup Index earlier this year also signals the company’s intent to break into brick-and-mortar payments at some point, too.

This gives us a ton to discuss with Collison, plus his views on the adoption of new payment methods like Apple Pay and the continued convergence of online and physical retail.

He joins a lineup of speakers that already includes the CEOs of retailers and brands like Macy’s, Shopify, Flipkart, Glossier, Chobani and Instacart, plus senior leaders from other innovative companies like Instagram and Square.

Code Commerce attendees will also get to choose from special, behind-the-scenes experiences hosted at places like Macy’s Herald Square, Casper’s “nap” store and sneakerhead mecca Flight Club New York.

With the event just a few days away, you should stop reading and sign up now. See you next week.
