Kia ora, New Zealand!
Today we’re officially launching Stripe in New Zealand!
Businesses in New Zealand can now sign up instantly and start accepting payments in minutes with 135+ currencies from customers around the world. From Connect and Billing to Radar and Sigma, New Zealand businesses can now use the full Stripe stack to start and scale global companies.
Thousands of companies gave us feedback and helped shape our product for New Zealand. During our preview, we’ve worked with some of the region’s fastest-growing businesses: Xero uses Stripe to let any of their million users accept credit cards for their invoices—one of the first accounting platforms to do so. Mobi2Go, a software-as-a-service platform for restaurants across the world, uses Stripe to allow restaurants to accept payments from their customers with Apple Pay and cards in local currencies.
And we would love to meet more entrepreneurs and businesses in New Zealand! We’re holding Office Hours this week across four technology hubs in Auckland and Wellington. If you’re considering Stripe, have any questions, or just want to meet other entrepreneurs, we hope to see you there.
We can’t wait to see what Kiwi companies build with Stripe!
