Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies in the Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on, or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events! In today’s Startup Monday, we highlight Stripe, a better way to accept payments online and in mobile apps!
Trying to sell products or services online through your website? That’s a bit tricky since you’ll need a payment system and a secure transaction. With Stripe, you can get all those benefits by incorporating their API, which is pretty much just pre-written code! Businesses can now easily integrate a payment system into their website or app. Plus, there’s head-ache free security that will leave your mind at ease. Many companies such as Lyft, Postmates, Instacart and thousands of other mobile apps are already using Stripe.
Designing payment forms can be a hassle. So make good use of Stripe’s checkout! The checkout system includes several languages including English, French, Spanish, Chinese and much more! It’s great that it has several languages to help people, but is it limited to certain types of cards? Well…it depends on the person’s preference. Customers are able to use either their debit or credit cards to make their purchases! To make it even easier, one tap payments for faster and more efficient checkouts.
Connect with people around the world. You’ll be able to send payments across the country. This, especially, makes it easier to conduct business overseas. So just sign away that contract and let the code do the rest. There’s even an automatic conversion rate for currency!
Put your trust in the security and don’t worry! Stripe has a two step verification process to protect accounts as well as certified PCI level 1, meaning that there are over 6 million Visa and/or Master card transactions per year. With that many transactions, you aren’t bound to go wrong!
We love that Stripe lets you start accepting payments shortly after setup and doesn’t require a merchant account. As event planners, Stripe seems like a time-saving asnd convenient option for us and other businesses that want to get started right away. Will you be trying Stripe?
