Take the next step to Online Payments
Two of the biggest names in the online payment sector are Stripe and PayPal.
For this site, I use Stripe to process Visa, MasterCard and American Express with orders made through my website. Payments are collected using Stripe secure web servers, allowing you to shop online safely and with confidence. Just to let you know, I do not have direct access to your credit/debit card details, and no such details are therefore stored by me.
Stripe is an Irish-American financial services and software as a service (SaaS) company dual-headquartered in San Francisco, California and Dublin, Ireland. The company primarily offers payment processing software and application programming interfaces (APIs) for e-commerce websites and mobile applications.
Stripe is the best way to accept payments online. Stripe aims to expand internet commerce by making it easy to process transactions and manage an online business. We want to increase the GDP of the internet.
Stripe now processes billions of dollars a year for thousands of businesses, from newly-launched start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. Since Stripe powers so many new businesses, it’s a snapshot of how the internet is changing; many users are in categories that barely existed five years ago. Web and mobile businesses around the world using Stripe include Twitter, Kickstarter, Shopify, Salesforce, Lyft, and many more.
Stripe is 900 people and headquartered in San Francisco. The company has received around $450 million in funding to date; investors include Sequoia Capital, Visa, American Express, Peter Thiel, and Elon Musk.
