Great product, great support team, mobile support lacking

2017-07-12

Great payment processing system with very competitive pricing/fees.

Pros

Pricing is competitive and better than most others I found - while they're not the cheapest, their feature set more than makes up for it, so they're the best value option for my needs.

Cons

There is an iOS app to display dashboard data, but no official app for Android and the third-party apps are mostly junk or make my eyes bleed or both.

The only way to process payments for any business

2018-06-08

I can easily get setup and collect payments in no time.

Pros

Also, there are many third-party applications that support and integrate with Stripe.

Cons

Unless you are using a third-party app you will need a developer to get the most out of this service though there are some basic interfaces provided.

Simple, easy to use

2018-03-13

Pros

It integrates seamlessly with our donor management software, and there is a nonprofit discount rate so the fees are lower than some other similar services.

Cons

I wish there was the option to generate a formal-looking report of payments received to keep with our financial records.

Getting paid just got so easy!

2017-11-14

Ease of billing, refunds, fraudulent activity analysis and revenue recognition.

Pros

Stripe is a well known brand name, most people are comfortable processing payments via this method and their security is top notch.

Cons

Sometimes it's a bit hard to set up integrations that play nice with Stripe, for the most part it's been acceptable and hence it's not a deal breaker.

Easiest way to integrate payments into your web app, bar none

2018-10-03

We use Stripe for credit card processing on a wide variety of ecommerce sites, web apps, and even donation campaigns (Stripe offers discounted rates for non-profits!)

Pros

Stripe provides the easiest way to integrate their credit card processing into your web app via APIs, or embeds, which allows Stripe to do all the heavy lifting on your site.

Cons

Bank account deposits take too long, Stripe holds funds for 7 business days before depositing your money into your account. For smaller, cash-strapped businesses, this often isn't ideal.

Stripe is a very good platform to process my online payments

2018-05-04

Easy to customize and to control platform, you can configure your payments very fast and trust all your payments are secured.

Pros

Every step is easy to follow and you'll be able to config your payment processor in a few steps.

Cons

As a third world citizen working for third world companies, Stripe does not offer the payment methods required for some projects, so I have been forced to use other alternatives.

Good payment processing option

2018-07-16

Pros

Stripe integrates with major ecommerce sites, and can be incorporated into most websites.

Cons

Would like to see a month statement, rather than just filter by dates for easier account reconciliation.

Nicole Ouellette

A flexible but powerful payment processor

2017-10-05

Online processing that integrates with everything I need it to and then some.

Pros

Stripe is not only reasonably priced but has powerful integrations with some of my favorite software like Gravity Forms (Wordpress).

Cons

Note: don't forget to add other users BEFORE turning on two factor authentication or else the person helping you may have to call you to get that code for their access.

Integration with Payment Processing Framework

2017-10-10

Pros

Management of the full spectrum of payment processing: Purchases, Refunds, Cancellations, Dispute Charges Integrating of Stripe API into own software product was easy and Technical Documentation greatly helped Test Accounts was a big help in testing credit card payment processing schema Confidence in using Framework when we read articles about other major online retailers adapting Stripe as well

Cons

However, if you find something of value, we would definitely let Stripe know about improving particular process use case.

The Best Payment Processing I've Ever Used!

2016-11-04

Their plug and play integrations (Kickstarter, Celery, Shopify, etc.) has made it simple for us to scale our Kickstarter project to a full-fledge ecommerce site.

Cons

Especially doing ecommerce work, we find that a lot of customers will simply do a chargeback instead of communicating with us to ask for a refund.

Super easy and straight-forward to integrate and use.

2018-06-05

Most of our business transactions are processed through Stripe and we've set Stripe up for clients who require online merchant processing.

Pros

I also appreciate the popularity of Stripe and how common third-party integration has become - in my case into AgileCRM and Freshbooks.

Cons

I have never won a dispute - no not one - and the process seems entirely automated.

Review of Stripe for Small Business

2018-09-11

They both made the integration extremely easy for a total non techy.

Pros

Very easy set up when referred by a 3rd partner. Security and data protection compliance is built in by design.

Cons

The payments to our bank account take too long, over a week usually.

Default Choice Payment Provider

2017-09-22

Pros

The intuitive integration in ones own software and the great UI framework that provides a professional payment form for the users out-of-the-box.

Cons

A nice addition would be that one can use the UI framework provided by stripe but use their own backend with it and process the payments with their own server.

Stripe - Easy To Implement and Use

2018-10-03

Wonderful!

Pros

Installation of the payment gateway on my site was easy; especially when using Gravity Forms to set up the payment form. I like that they automatically send payments to my bank account after a few days.

Cons

Getting reports was a little confusing at first, but now all is well.
