 So easy to use

I really like Stripe for credit card processing. It works seamlessly with CounSol so I only have to access the Stripe console to reconcile the transfers with my bank statement.

So easy to use

24/02/2017

I really like Stripe for credit card processing. It works seamlessly with CounSol so I only have to access the Stripe console to reconcile the transfers with my bank statement.

Pros

Works seamlessly with CounSol. The new interface is really easy to navigate.

Cons

Wish I could import the transfer information directly into Xero

CB payment done easily

16/02/2017

I chose Stripe because it's really well integrated with multiple platforms, plus I don't need to get a special permission by my bank. It's just wired transfer.

Great payment processor that stays up to date with modern payment options

14/02/2017

I have a squarespace site with an ecommerce store and since Stripe is integrated into Squarespace, I decided to use them as my payment processor. They have been excellent and deposit money into my account fast. I am also surprised at how Stripe manages to stay on top of all the trends in ecommerce such as offering subscription payment services and even having integration with Facebook Stores and Twitter Shopping.

Pros

Easy to use Manages to constantly come out with new features Keeps up to date with new payment trends like Apple Pay, Subscription services, Twitter/Facebook shopping.

Cons

Support is email only, no phone support

make my life easy

10/02/2017

I am a psychologist in solo private practice and see many young adults who prefer to pay with debit or credit cards. Stripe makes it so easy. Stripe is integrated with my electronic health record system, Simple Practice, and I can quickly enter and store client's credit card information there. I love Stripe.

Pros

So, so easy to use

Cons

Nothing, really

Business Owner's Dream

10/02/2017

Stripe has been phenomenal for my business. I'm not a developer but have been able to easily find integrations for the software that I use. The new dashboard is incredible!

Pros

The dashboard is really easy and simple to use. I love being able to easily add payments or subscriptions from the dashboard.

Cons

If you aren't a developer, you'll be limited in what all that you can do with Stripe.

Great payment gateway

08/02/2017

Stripe makes it very easy to setup subscriptions or charge credit cards directly. The API is easy to use and is comprehensive.

Pros

The API is very well documented, Stripe's support team is pretty good as well. If you can think of something you want to do, the API most likely handles it.

Cons

The billing portal could use a few more features. It is pretty developer-centric but could have some more quality of life features.

Although it's not that easy to use, the information is very well projected

08/02/2017

We use stripe to keep record of our customer's payments, refunds, balances, etc. It is very effective sending our customers their confirmation emails, and receipts. We have it linked with our personal information and works great!

Pros

1) you can have an overall view of the payment of your customers 2) issue partial or full refunds 3) apply promo codes that can be set up to be multi-monthly

Cons

1) requires a password every time you want to save changes 2) Coupons that expired cannot be reactivated
