Cons
  • This is where I feel Stripe is lagging the most. Everyone needs these UI components, and the ones they provide are fairly weak or limited.Timothy T.Read the full review
  • As mentioned in my pros, Stripe frequently blocks transactions. While the pro may be that it is blocking fraudulent transactions, I also wonder how many legitimate transactions it is blocking.Stephanie R.Read the full review
  • As well as offering all the functions we'd need from a payment gateway, we can fully rely on their support in terms of adhering to legislation and in handling any fraud disputes.Ewan F.Read the full review

Good - I link it with Jotform to take payments for tennis lessons and tennis camps that I provide. The tennis club that I work for also uses it to take payments for membership. It's cheap (compared to others) easy to use and works.

Pros
It is really low cost - I think the cheapest payment provider. And it's easy to use.

Cons
I haven't found anything in particular that I don't like.

Great as said does exactly what it needs to do and gives us small flexibility and financial relief from using Paypal.

Pros
One of the things we never liked about Paypal was the pricing and from there we went and worked with Stripe for some time as is cheaper. It continues to do what it needs to do and for better value.

Cons
Think Paypal is much more widely known still with Stripe and Square and others growing due to this fact, some people dont know Stripe and therefore are somewhat hesitant to make a transaction.

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. Website integration with Woocommerce is simple and works great. Support is amazing and respond quickly with helpful info if you ever need to contact them.

Cons
Mobile apps are limited/non-existent. 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.

Stripe allows me to easily accept online payments.

Pros
Fast and affordable setup for accepting CC payments. Much cheaper and simpler than setup with offerings from my bank.

Cons
I don't have any current cons with the software. The only annoyance I've had is when Stripe was a newer tool it wasn't offered in my country.

When you want to integrate a payment tool on your platforms, Stripe is one of the best known, once the tests you realize that it is also one of the best that works, at all levels: implementation, different markets, different currencies ...

Pros
It is a benchmark as a tool, I was fascinated by a demonstration made by the Stripe team. You can integrate them to e-commerce platforms very easily.

Cons
The price, you can find in the market other somewhat cheaper options. Although it is true that the quality of this is better!

I am a fan of Strip because it has easy integration into Wordpress, Shopify,... We use Stripe for some of our websites and we never had any problems with it. It's bugfree (for me atleast) and I think many people will find what they need in Stripe for their own webshops.

Pros
You can integrate most of today's web platforms or content management systems with Stripe. It takes away a lot of the hassle of accepting payments on your website. They support a lot of different payment methods so everyone will find something they can use to pay with.

Cons
Some of the fees for transactions are rather high and there are cheaper options available in the payment world. But I guess that doesn't matter a lot and you can put that cost in the prices of your products your selling anyway.

Good Substitute for Paypal

Used occasionally for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, good substitute so far, I've never had to email Stripe support as things always worked when using Stripe.

Pros
It's a good substitute for Paypal and the price was cheaper than Paypal in the beginning but I think the cost is now pretty similar to them. The user interface is pretty good and simple. Paypal gets a bit confusing and I have to click all over the place to get to the tools I want to use.

Cons
So far, not much. I haven't used it that extensively. I've used it for a long time to collect payments but haven't used all the elaborate functions it offers.

Excelent E-Commerce Payment Processor - Outstanding Security!

Used daily for 2+ years

Very happy with the Stripe platform and will continue to use it for the foreseeable future.

Pros
Stripe has an excellent product, that integrates with our WooCommerce store seamlessly. The features are robust, which includes outstanding security to detect and block fraudulent transaction attempts. Since switching to Stripe and adjusting our security settings, we have not had 1 chargeback or fraudulent charge!

Cons
2.9% + 30¢ per successful card charge ads up. The pricing is well aligned with the industry, but it could always be cheaper, as volume heavy transactions add up quickly!

Great product when it comes to value for money. Easy to get going, but the UX part can be a bit difficult to maneuver in – but its like that for everybody dealing with real money in the digital space.

Pros
Well this product is cheap compared to a lot of its competitors. Furthermore the integration is insanely easy to do which gets you off the ground quickly.

Cons
It can be very complicated to use. This product has definitely not been UX tested by normal vendors, as it seems to be made very much from a backend perspective. Lots of room for improvement on this.

Best merchant processor that integrates with all things WordPress!

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-10-06
Review Source: Capterra

Overall, a great merchant processor that I use for many of my clients in web design.

Pros
I really like that Stripe has the infrastructure in place to integrate with many of the plugins I use in WordPress, such as WooCommerce and Gravity Forms. Especially with the recent enhancements to their integration, setting up the sync between a Stripe account and its website takes about 15 minutes, and everything always works smoothly! In addition, I really like the simplicity of their pricing and the absense of monthly fees.

Cons
Nothing to dislike - my only fear is that they'll raise their transaction cost, but hopefully competition in the market will keep it low.

Very good overall and would 100% recommend it for use in the UK.

Pros
We were assigned, between my team and the school, an account manager who was very helpful and assisted in the technical set up (WordPress and Woo Commerce). The set-up was easy and the Stripe gateway worked perfectly from the off and we have had minimal need to contact support but it has always been great.

Cons
No real cons. Price was the main factor when we were choosing a product and Stripe was cheaper than the other ones we looked at but we don't believe we saw any compromise on service or product quality.

Stripe allowed us to create an LLC in only a few weeks and provided us with the banking information that we needed to do so.

Pros
This software was easy and effective in setting up an LLC with banking attached to it. For one cost we entered our info and Stripe did the rest!

Cons
There are cheaper alternatives to setting up an LLC rather than going through Stripe, if you are willing to do some digging then there may be easier options.
