Our mission is to increase
 the GDP of the internet

Stripe is a technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet. Businesses of every size—from new startups to public companies—use our software to accept payments and manage their businesses online.

The potential of the online economy

Despite internet businesses growing faster than the rest of the economy, only about 3 percent of global commerce happens online today.

Regulatory complexity, a byzantine global financial system, and a shortage of engineers are constraining the impact of the internet economy.

Removing the barriers to online commerce helps more new businesses get started, expedites growth for existing companies, and increases economic output and trade globally.
