As I wrote previously in the review, Stripe has a very clear and pretty intuitive user interface which helps to attract new users. Also Stripe integration process with new software products is quite simple. I would also note that Stripe is more popular that WePay and Amazon Pay,…

Stripe is incredibly easy to use and has the feature set that a custom build billing system would. They've thought about everything, and for our industry they are perfect. The biggest advantage that Stripe has is their incredibly easy to use "Products" section. This makes it …

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.

It is good when you need a temporary (or permanent) solution to get funds to your bank account for something as small as a one time event, recurring or larger. It has reputable companies that use it and seems to integrate easily with most systems and accounts. You will have to go through a whole setup, with your bank accounts, etc.

Pros
Stripe
  • 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.

  • Easy and quick for users with WePay accounts to make donations.
  • Fairly quick payouts to organizations who receive donations through our platform.

Cons
Stripe
  • 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.

  • Admin reporting could be improved
  • Fees are pulled out of each transaction instead of aggregated at the end of the month (this could be a pro for some users)
  • Difficult to give switch the admin role after it has already been assigned
  • No credit card swipers
  • Only way to process a transaction is directly through the website

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

Support Rating
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.

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.

PayPal has it's own niche, and have more stand alone options, but they are confusing to navigate unless you are in their system a lot. Integration can take a lot more time to do and test out. Plus WePay charges less than PayPal does which in this case is an advantage.

Return on Investment
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.

Chase
  • Cuts down on sales time because Wepay does the approval instantly
  • Less return on a per transaction basis because the Wepay fees are pretty high to start with so we can't mark them up too high
