    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.

    Integrates seamlessly with everything

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Very positive. Great alternative for start up businesses, or online businesses that can save a lot of time.

    Pros

    So you can use Stripe with invoicing and subscription software or you can build out your own system if you are a geek that is PCI compliant fairly easily. Almost everything has an integration option and if you get stuck with a problem for whatever reason you can log into the dashboard and usually figure it out from there, if you can't they have great support documentation and even a chat option. Compared to similar competitors you even save a little bit. I especially like their ACH fees, some of the lowest I've seen. An added bonus is that I don't have to pay for monthly statement fees or pay the annual PCI compliance fee and surveys because they add that into the flat rate.

    Cons

    Only thing I'd like to see is an option to download statements in a PDF format like previous merchant processing providers, but rarely do I need it.

    Best Payment Processing System I've ever used!

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    I have been using Stripe for over 4 years now and my experience so far has been great. I use this everyday to send invoices to my clients. I've also planned to integrate stripe in my website so I can take payments directly from my website.

    Pros

    The best part about this software is that they accept almost all legitimate businesses across the globe and provide services to small or medium sized businesses. I have a small business and I use Stripe for accepting payments.

    Cons

    There are features such as Radar which comes with a cost. I believe they could give such features free of cost also. Other than that, I don't think there is anything else I don't like about Stripe.

    One of the most versatile tools used in our business

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    Stripe is an excellent tool for the purpose we use it for, which is primarily setting up clients on automatic direct debits for monthly subscription packages.

    Pros

    Stripe offers the ability to collect payments from customers in different ways. This includes manual subscription creations, invoice collection via links and payment buttons on website. Stripe integrates with such a larges base of applications making it easy to monetise products and services through other platforms and applications.

    Cons

    Some of the advanced features require some knowledge of coding. For most business owners that will require hiring a Stripe expert.

    Stripe is by far the best payment processor and fees are cheaper than PayPal

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    I think it's great, easy to use and a deploy on a website and the cheaper fees make a difference. I prefer when clients pay via Stripe

    Pros

    Stripe is great for payment processors and the fees are cheaper than the likes of PayPal. It's easy to use and a lot of my clients pay via card through Stripe which has boosted sales.

    Cons

    I dislike the wait for a payment to be sent to my bank account. PayPal have instant transfer which is better.
