If you are building a custom web, mobile, or e-commerce application, Stripe is the most flexible, easiest to implement, and feature-rich platform available today. Other payment processors have poor APIs, poor documentation, and poor support in comparison. We've worked with a number of more legacy payment gateway and merchant account setups in the past, and the hassles and hurdles slow down product development. Stripe's support is extremely fast and knowledgeable. We can ask Stripe's live chat a complex software implementation question and have an answer from a real knowledgeable person in minutes. Getting a helpful answer at all from some other payment services we have worked with can be a challenge in comparison

WePay

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

  • Documentation: Stripe is extensively well-documented, with thorough docs on both the high-level components of their system, as well as best-in-class API documentation.
  • Customer Support: Stripe has great, responsible customer support. Their front-line CS is remarkably willing to dig into an issue and look for out-of-the-box solutions when a specific feature or use-case isn't quite supported.
  • Reliability: Stripe has given us every reason to trust their platform, which has been extremely stable and robust in the years we've been using it.

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

Cons

Stripe

  • The UI is easy to navigate and understand, however if the homepage or dashboard was simplified it could make Stripe an even better solution than it is.
  • Unlike some of it's competitors, it comes with no hardware to process transactions. Currently this is not an issue for the way we do business or run credit card transactions but as we grow and expand we may have a need for mobile-based hardware devices in the future.
  • Although it's a competitive product, we'd welcome lower fees and quicker balance transfers to our main banking account from Stripe.

WePay

  • 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

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!

We use Square for point of sale payments but we only use that occasionally if we are at an expo or similar. I have also used a credit card service from our bank but it was several years ago and it was technologically slow and expensive. Stripe is easier to use and reasonably priced for transactions.

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

  • Stripe has allowed us to effortlessly collect monthly fees from our clients. After spending time to get things setup, we now don't need to spend additional time each month processing payments. So in that sense Stripe has had a positive affect in free up our time.

WePay

  • 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
