Stripe’s Backstory

“We had experienced first-hand the difficulty of accepting online payments. On almost every front, it was becoming easier to build and launch an online business. Payments, however, remained dominated by clunky legacy players. It seemed clear that there should be a developer-focused, instant-setup payment platform that would scale to any size. Stripe launched in September 2011.

Stripe now processes billions of dollars a year for thousands of businesses, from newly-launched start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. Since Stripe powers so many new businesses, it's a snapshot of how the internet is changing; many users are in categories that barely existed five years ago. Web and mobile businesses around the world using Stripe include Twitter, Kickstarter, Shopify, Salesforce, Lyft, and many more.

Stripe is 566 people and headquartered in San Francisco. The company has received around $300 million in funding to date; investors include Sequoia Capital, Visa, American Express, Peter Thiel, and Elon Musk.”

Stripe Supports Membee’s Card Vault

Giving members and non-members more ways to pay while controlling your transaction costs is the way of the future. Membee client organizations looking to move their payment processing to stripe will enjoy full support for Membee’s Card Vault feature.

Simple, Flat Pricing Model Bucks the Trend

“There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch” is a popular adage that rings true when it comes to online transaction costs. An emerging and disturbing trend sees the transaction cost varying based on the credit card and more specifically, the type of rewards card used by the purchaser. For example, two members register for your event, one using a basic VISA card and the other using their “double the air miles” or  their “cash back on everything you buy” rewards VISA card, you could see two different costs for the same transaction.

On an increasing basis, the cost of providing all those “rewards” is being passed on to your organization in the form of higher transaction fees. Lunch isn’t free because you could be paying for it. Stripe sees a competitive advantage in bucking this trend.

Stripe is proud to have a fixed percentage based fee for each time you accept a credit card payment. The pricing is the same for all the major credit cards being 2.9% + $0.30 (Amex., Visa, MC) for each transaction.

Stripe offers no surprise fees or confusing PCI compliance procedures and there are no additional fees incurred for international cards, failed charges, or refunds.

Payment Features;

  • Fast, predictable transfers
  • No hidden fees
  • No setup fees
  • No monthly fees
  • Same price for all major Credit Cards
  • Accepts payments in most currencies

Going Global!

Stripe is headquartered in San Francisco, CA and currently supports over 25 different countries, with 9 global offices. They can support even the most remote locations, including Anchorage, Alaska and Cannock, England.
