What is Stripe?

Stripe is an online payment processing tool for internet businesses. Whether managing a subscription service, an on-demand marketplace, an e-commerce store, or a crowdfunding platform, Stripe’s meticulously designed APIs and functionality help users create the best possible product for their users.

Key benefits of using Stripe

  • Create a customized checkout experience that works across browsers and devices of all sizes. Choose from a range of options that allow control across flexibility, customization, and ease.

  • Accept all major debit and credit cards from customers in every country including Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover, JCB, Diners Club, China, and UnionPay.

  • Simplify and accelerate how you reconcile transactions through Stripe's API and dashboard for real-time information about charges, fees, refunds, and transfers.

  • See all charges—across different payment types, countries, and currencies—in the Stripe Dashboard or extract the data directly from the API.

  • Hundreds of integrations help extend the Stripe platform and automate almost every manual process that used to take hours of human time.

    Pros
    I think Stripe is great payment gateway for any eCommerce business. They have great rates and I find them better than other payment processors.

    Very good wallet that allows you to store and exchange money or cryptography. Easy to use, reliable and secure.

    Stripe like other platforms is free to sign up and provides market competitive rates which is nice.

    Cons
    They verified it was a scammer, refunded the stolen credit card, did not charge me fees and contacted the US internet fraud division with the information.

    Fees for same country payments are too high and once funds have been taken they are then held for 14 days. Appalling customer service who basically said too bad.

    Anonymous Reviewer

    They refunded customers 3 months after the purchase without me knowing and they already have their items. My customers are also upset with this disgusting company.

    Best payment processor out there

    Reviewed 20 days ago
    Pros

    It is very easy to start processing payments, very fast and reliable, they offer a lot of information for analytics and reports too, it is great that you can separate your businesses with the same account.

    Cons

    Overall is great, the only I can say is that it has a lot of implementations but no easy approach to any, you need to know what you want and look for it, it will be great if they give you some updates on what they offer and how to implement it

    Stripe for Payments

    Reviewed 13 days ago

    We have had no issues using Stripe. Payments are processed accordingly.

    Pros

    This product is very easy to use. It is set up through our website. Members can easily register for workshops and seminars. They can also easily join and/or renew their memberships.

    Cons

    Integration with our new system was easy. The only issue we seem to have is the processing time, from the member payment date, to being processed, and then sent to our bank seems to take longer than it should.

    Expensive

    Reviewed a month ago

    I wouldn’t use again but the fees are too high.

    Pros

    I like that the system is easy to use on your mobile device as well as send text receipts. You can even do promotions with the software.

    Cons

    It’s expensive. The fees are just too expensive for my organizations. I used the software with give lively which is free but the stripe fee was not worth it. I used it for my donation campaign and was disappointed.

    Very developer friendly and amazing developer/customer support

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Our business takes payments from one party and routes them to two others, whilst taking a percentage for our operating costs. Automating the routing of payments with stripe with their API's was so simple.

    Pros

    What I love most about using Stripe is their live developer support. Despite their documentation being super easy to navigate, in the event of a more technical question, all you have to do is contact the support and most of the they'll be able to help you out.

    Cons

    Apart from lack of support for ACH transfers in some regions, everything is perfect.

    The solution to our credit card woes.

    Reviewed a month ago

    Stripe has been great. Other processors are clunky and convoluded. Stripe just fits in seamlessly with our webpage.

    Pros

    We loved the flexibility to integrate stripe directly into our webpage for our clients to pay invoices. Its simple, easy to do and works wonderfully.

    Cons

    The setup was a little confusing, we built a test site in wordpress to figure out the integration in a development environment, and got it going in the way we wanted in about a week.
