Most web friendly payments system around
March 24, 2014 12:40
Stripe has been developed for web users not by banks just moving bank apps to web. Their APIs are easy to use and understandable and they have support for lots of languages.
They are also incredibly flexible and it's possible to do things with Stripe that other providers don't allow (for example implementing annual billing it's difficult to get authorisation as a start-up - even if it's only $20 a month, that's $240 annually which means there's a year to charge-back - so implement it as a one off payment, which does mean doing annual billing yourself, but there's a year to get it right).
They also have fantastic start-up deals (if you know the right accelerator or other provider) easy to get transaction fees waived.
They also have engineers at hand to help you with any issues, who actually know the product.

I love Stripe. They were super, super easy to set up — it was less than 5 minutes and I could already put test payments through my app! They take a huge chunk off of small transactions (if you're only charging $3, you only get $2.61), so they kind of make you raise prices on small fees. However, I love not having to worry about security or managing anything, just getting paid!
Working with Paypal is a nightmare

Paypal comes with tons of old APIs, and new ones that are incomplete. There are bugs in the documentation, bug with their implementation. And their support department is completely clueless.
Frankly it is only good if you use its light mode: a direct payment with no recurring fees. So forget about it if you want to put in place things like Subscription mode, their are better players out there to do that.
Excellent experience integrating Braintree

I had the opportunity to integrate Braintree as a new gateway on a project I worked on last year (RoR project), the change from PayPal to Braintree was smooth and now it's really easy to maintain. The documentation for the API was super easy to follow. Really enjoyed using Braintree.
CC handler for our membership system. It was an easy choice for how quickly we were able to implement it, as well as the disputed payment process.
Payment processing should definitely be handled by a third party, and choosing a third party with a good API means we can think of ways to monetize new features without nearly as much hassle.
(BrainTree also fits this purpose.)
Stripe provides fully secure integrated payment solutions to sell stuff from your website without security risks.
Payment processing for domestic and international-enabled credit cards; subscription management.
Used to accept booking fees and payroll. Doesn't require to save customer credit card info.
We use Stripe to accept monthly subscription payments, and also to connect to our users' Stripe accounts.
Payments? Stripe. There's pretty much no other option that's as easy or pretty to work with out of the box, you just plug it in and watch the fireworks.
I had heard that Stripe was the easiest to use (and it’s the most popular payments service on our site), so it was a pretty easy decision.
We started with PayPal initially, but Stripe appeared and made our lives much easier. They are now our primary payment service.
We are using Braintree that is PayPal company for our payments on our website. No more redirects to PayPal :-)
Braintree handles recurring credit card and Paypal payments for healthchecks.io. We liked the extensive developer documentation, the language-specific libraries and the friendly, timely communication from Braintree.
credit card and paypal transaction processing. We love Stripe but want a single API for credit cards and PayPal
