    Pros
    They have great features and the Capital option is totally awesome. I wouldn't trade them for the world.
    Stripe is a great tool and platform, very easy to use easy to setup and secure that clients can trust with their accounts.
    I think Stripe is great payment gateway for any eCommerce business. They have great rates and I find them better than other payment processors.
    Cons
    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.
    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.
    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.

    The Best Payment Processer For Freelancers

    Reviewed a year ago

    I have had an excellent experience with Stripe and have been using it to receive payments for over 4 years now. I've never had any issues in that time or had to contact customer support.

    Pros

    Stripe is very easy to integrate with invoicing software (I am using Zoho Invoice), and allows me to accept client payments by credit/debit card as a freelance writer. It is also trusted by clients, and since I started offering Stripe payments, I have found that I am now getting paid in half the time as when I offered bank transfers/Paypal. The fees are also a lot less than PayPal.

    Cons

    The only con I have had is that it took a long time (about 1.5 weeks) to receive the very first payout due to verification processes. But after that, I now receive a payout to my bank account within 2-3 days each time.

    Stripe Payments is my Go-To payment processor for my online business.

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    My love for Stripe has grown over the years. I probably had a Stripe account for 6 to 10 months before I even used it. I looked at it and not having a degree from MIT I was pretty lost and didn't bother trying to figure it out. I had a payment process already and it was working. After I began reading more and more bad news about this other payment processor I was using, I decided it was time to carve...

    Pros

    It is easy to integrate with my website's payment tools. Branding my invoices with my website logo is also super easy. I have used the word 'easy' a couple of times already and that is the main thing I like about Stripe - the Stripe features I use are easy. While trying to figure out some of the features I now use on a regular basis, I had to use the Stripe Support staff quite a bit and in doing so, I quickly realized that they are a top benefit of using Stripe.

    Cons

    In the Pro category, I said that my main Pro feature was that Stripe is easy but only with the features I use. I might use more of the many features Stripe offers if they were easy to use or at least figure out without the back & forth with Stripe Support. Stripe does have a YouTube channel but the one that is most helpful is StripeDevelopers - NOT just Stripe.

    Pros

    Stripe is like the Amazon of payment processing. It integrates with just about everything. And it’s seamless once it’s set up. You have so many options to payment set up or pay in full. You can easily match your branding to it.

    Cons

    I did have a hard time setting up afterpay with it because they needed to verify my account. That was a hassle.

    Stripe is a GO-TO payment processor for SMBs

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Stripe has enabled first class payment processing for our organization and the organizations we’ve implemented it for.

    Pros

    Stripe is everything that people love about PayPal with everything a payment processing system needs to feel professional and high end to the end user. If you are using Squarespace or Woocommerce, Stripe is so easy to implement that you don’t even need development knowledge to implement it. Payment processing rates are fair and instant payout options are huge for businesses that are just starting out.

    Cons

    There’s really no con to Stripe. It’s definitely something that requires some development knowledge to implement it. but because of how easy it is for developers… Stripe has so much third-party support so you’re likely able to find a free implementation method for your platform.
