            Review ofStripeStripe

            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.

            Review ofStripeStripe

            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!

            Integrating Stripe to your app is dead simple.

            It removes all the hassle of integrating with a payment gateway.

            Its API is developer-friendly and intuitive, reliable, and works all the time.

            It’s my payment gateway of choice.

            Stripe is used as one of our payment-gateways included in our shop-solution. We only use the credit-card features of it and don't accept any bitcoins (yet).

            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.

            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.

            We started with PayPal initially, but Stripe appeared and made our lives much easier. They are now our primary payment service.
