Stripe handles essentially all of your payment infrastructure for you – with little additional logic needed by you, and over the past few years they've significantly built out their additional features for things like invoicing, emailed receipts, etc. Stripe's initial selling point for us was their powerful and well-documented APIs, which, when coupled with their great technical support, has kept us happy over the years.I'm less familiar with what it looks like to try to make use of Stripe without integrating with them via API; I get the impression that they similarly support manually entering and processing payments, however I can't speak to what that process is like or how it compares to the competition.

  • Stripe integrates perfectly with our cloud-based accounting software, making collecting payments easy.

  • The reporting features are nice and also integrate into a BI platform we use to provide us with in-depth and accurate reporting of all credit card transactions we do.
  • Their fees are reasonable and in line with their competitors.

Cons

  • Customer service takes awhile

  • Despite the API documentation and examples from third party sources, it can be hard to get setup. Given the number of commonly desired things to setup, it would be nice to have more pre-coded features to get started with less trial and error.

Whether it be their upper management or their customer support crew, they have always acted and treated me like they care. Probably because we make them a lot of money, but nonetheless they do a great job whenever any issue comes up. I even met them in person!

I have not had to utilize the customer support feature, which is why I gave it a ten! I feel like the better the software is, the less you have to use customer support, which is much easier on the user! Love the user-friendliness of Stripe. I would definitely recommend it!

They are very similar. PayPal charges you monthly to have the ability to set up monthly payments. I had a problem with PayPal earlier this year where it would let me set up a recurring payment but then would not let me charge my customer the following month. It's actually a pain in the ass to have to go into PayPal every month and bill your clients on the billing cycle day. Stripe does it automatically.

Return on Investment

  • Lots of sales!
  • 10% commission paid to them

  • For the small fee I pay for processing services, it's nice to have so many flexible payment options for my clients.
  • The automation of deposits into my account makes it well worth a small fee. I plugged my information into my settings and haven't had to think twice.
