Reliable payment gateway

// Head of Marketing & Customer Success at LiveAgent

What do you like about Stripe?

We've used 5 payment gateways in 4 years and Stripe is on a shared #1 spot. It's reliable, easy to integrate and security is very high. Couple months ago, our Stripe dashboard went through a major redesign. My personally I liked the older version better and easier to understand. However, on the other hand, I understand the shift towards more modern looks. Eventually I will get a better hold of it. I must say that handling transaction disputes in Stripe is probably the best amongst its competitors. Their customer service is also very attentive.

What do you dislike about Stripe?

Even though these are two completely different types of services (credit/debit card processing vs. digital wallet), Stripe does not integrate with PayPal. Also, I believe they've discontinued support with Bitcoin because of its volatility, which I understand.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Stripe solve?

Accepting credit card & debit card payments for recurring software as a service subscriptions. It helps us automate and accept payments.

Stipe is the easiest way to take payments, whether you are a developer, or an everyday retailer.


What do you like about Stripe?

Stripe is so simple and easy to use. We have Stripe set up to integrate with our software, our developers found integrating the API a breeze, and our end users find the process to set up Stripe simple.

What do you dislike about Stripe?

Finding the correct API key was confusing. It is clearly aimed at developers. It would be really nice for the forms and webhooks to be easier to set up.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Stripe solve?

We use Stripe to integrate with our software Fieldd. We also use it as our main payment processor for our cleaning company. Using it is super simple and has saved us a ton of time and money.
