You can only process cards and Bitcoin through Stripe. You funds appear in your account after 7 days (2? for the US accounts).
With that in mind, you don't get any 'balance' which you can send / use to make payments with. You have to wait for the funds to arrive in your bank before it is possible to spend them.
