    Flywire

    Many of our international students studying at our institution are financially supported by their parents in their homeland. In other words, they rely on their families for payment of their class fees. So, Flywire makes international payments convenient by making payment by visiting our college website and finding the Flywire payment option. Some prefer this method over credit card payments or by wiring money to the student's bank account in the U.S., which creates a whole additional step in making payments.

    Stripe

    Stripe is very suitable for small businesses. They provide you with a nice portable CC scanner when you sign-up. If you have an eCommerce store Stripe will most likely be compatible with it. Even if you have a more custom site built using Wordpress/WooCommerce Stripe has a free plug-in that's ready to use.

    • The customer service support is helpful.

    • They are reliable. I can count on everything going smoothly with transactions.
    • They are accurate. I don’t run into problems with collecting the proper amounts or being overcharged for fees.
    • They have good customer service. If I have a question about the customer portal or a problem with a customer, they help me resolve these issues.

    Cons

    Flywire

    • Delay time could be shortened between the actual time of payment and the confirmation of payment.
    • It could allow for the payer to pay more than the outstanding balance without rejecting additional amounts of money.
    • Refund information by way of Flywire is a little vague.

    • It would be nice to be able to see my Shopify payments from my main payment gateway. I currently have to go to Shopify for that.
    • The ability to be able to offer discounted rates at a smaller threshold would be nice.

      Stripe

      Stripe is the leader in the industry when it comes to any type of industry. All that is needed is a plan and then implementing that plan either with a developer, or through the help of Stripe's customer service team to assist in getting you setup. The ease of use time it takes to get up and running is second to none

      Best in class for usability. There's nothing close when it comes to how easy it is to use. Their knowledge base is great too if you get confused

      Stripe

      Stripe's support is nearly perfect – great attention to detail, fast response times, and a willingness to really dig into issues and get to the bottom of them. In the five years we've been using Stripe, the only negative thing I can say about their customer support is that it seems like there has been a slight shift to less technical front-line support agents, which means it's more likely your issue will have to be escalated before you get more information. This, however, has happened as Stripe rolled out more real-time support features like call and chat, and that really isn't workable if you're escalating everything right off the bat. It's absolutely an acceptable trade-off.

      Alternatives Considered

      Flywire

      Flywire is relatively simple to use with much quicker response time when it comes to customer support.

      Stripe

      We found that Stripe was much easier to have integrated with our site, as well as easier on the users when it comes to inputting payments. On our end, the dashboard and reporting are very easy to utilize and make it very easy to understand how our business is doing.

      Return on Investment

      Flywire

      • Cannot think of any negative impact
      • A good number of students are using Flywire to pay for their classes, so it is growing in popularity
      • It reduces the amount of foot traffic at the cashier / payment office when it comes to issues involving payment of classes.

      Stripe

      • It makes getting money from your clients really easy
      • It gives your clients the guarantee that their payment information is totally secure and confidentially used and kept
      • It is very easy to integrate with online assets of the company
      • In a couple of occasions, some companies have wanted me to use Stripe for them to pay me, and I have had a couple of hiccups. This was more related to the way that these companies set up the Stripe integration of my account to their platform. In both cases, the integration has not been possible and to this date, I still do not know why with exactitude.
      • As I said before, the commissions kept by Stripe could be lower, and shared with the CC companies, rather than having us clients pay for all of o it.
