What is Stripe?

What does Stripe offer?

Currently, Stripe offers the following products:

You don’t have to worry about PCI Compliance and other procedures because you can use Stripe.js, a Javascript library by Stripe, so the sensitive information such as credit card data does not touch your server, it is directly sent to Stripe and you get a unique token that you can store on your server for reference.
  1. Subscriptions – Handles all the aspects of recurring billing such as creating subscription plans, assigning plans to customers, multiple billing plans, add-ons, coupons, multiple subscriptions per customer and much more. They support around 193 currencies!
  1. Connect – Stripe Connect is used by marketplaces that need to accept payments and pay out to 3rd parties. Companies like Loyal Assistant ( link), Lyft, Instacart, Postmates, and Thumbtack are using Connect as their payment infrastructure.
