Stripe is an interesting payment service which launched earlier this year. It offers clear commission rates amongst some other great features, so we’re pleased to say you can now use the new Stripe Payment Gateway to plug it straight into Jigoshop.
Importantly, you’ll be able to take payments from anyone with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, and Diners Club cards, and the minimum chargeable amount is just $0.50. Stripe then takes a set 2.9% + $0.30 with no other fees for set-up etc.
Other features including subscription/recurring billing, and support for data portability, meaning they’ll help you to migrate your details if you leave the service. plus they store credit card details etc, meaning you don’t have to.
Please note that to receive funds from Stripe itself (which are paid on a 7-day rolling schedule), you or your business will need to be based in the U.S for the time being. Stripe are working on accommodating businesses around the globe, and this doesn’t affect which countries your customers can be located in.
