Stripe CLI

Tomer Elmalem on November 5, 2019 in Engineering

Building and testing a Stripe integration can require frequent switching between the terminal, your code editor, and the Dashboard. Today, we’re excited to launch the Stripe command-line interface (CLI). It lets you interact with Stripe right from the terminal and makes it easier to build, test, and manage your integration.

Stripe launches in Mexico

Eduardo Serrano on October 24, 2019

Following the recent opening of our Mexico City office, we’re excited to share that Stripe is now fully available in Mexico, the first country we’ve launched in Latin America.

Mexico is the second-largest economy in Latin America, but online commerce only represents around 2% of its GDP. This is rapidly changing: retail e-commerce in Mexico is expected to grow by 35% in 2019.

We want to help accelerate that growth. With today’s launch, Mexican entrepreneurs and businesses can start accepting payments from around the world in a matter of minutes, and access Stripe’s suite of products including Connect, Radar, Billing, and Sigma.

We’ve been tailoring Stripe’s products in close coordination with the innovative companies driving that growth in Mexico, such as Homely, Cornershop, mienvío, Rappi, and Unitips. Thanks to their feedback, we’ve built features and products that will benefit Mexican businesses:

  • The Payment Intents API now supports up to 18 installments (“meses sin intereses”) on major card networks, and can dynamically inform you in real-time if the functionality is available on your individual customer’s card.
  • Stripe now accepts payments via OXXO, allowing customers to pay for online purchases in cash at convenience stores around the country.
  • Transactions can be processed in over 135 currencies, making it easier to sell and export to customers around the world.

Mexican businesses can get started right away by creating a Stripe account. And if you have feedback, don’t be shy!

Después de la reciente apertura de nuestra oficina en la Ciudad de México, nos complace compartir que Stripe ahora está totalmente disponible en México, el primer país que lanzamos en América Latina.

México es la segunda economía más grande de América Latina, pero el comercio en línea solo representa alrededor del 2% de su PIB. Esto está cambiando rápidamente: se espera que el comercio electrónico en México crezca un 35% en 2019.

Queremos ayudar a acelerar ese crecimiento. Con el lanzamiento de hoy, emprendedores y empresas mexicanas pueden comenzar a aceptar pagos de todo el mundo en minutos y utilizar el conjunto de productos de Stripe, incluidos Connect, Radar, Billing y Sigma.

Hemos adaptado los productos de Stripe trabajando de la mano con empresas innovadoras que están liderando este crecimiento en México como Homely, Cornershop, mienvío, Rappi y Unitips. Gracias a su retroalimentación, hoy también lanzamos los siguientes productos que sabemos beneficiarán a las empresas mexicanas:

  • Con nuestro “Payment Intents API” ahora puedes procesar pagos con hasta 18 meses sin intereses, y te informamos dinámicamente en tiempo real si la funcionalidad está disponible con la tarjeta de tu cliente.
  • Stripe ahora acepta pagos a través de OXXO, lo que permite a tus clientes pagar por sus compras en línea en efectivo alrededor del país.
  • Las transacciones se pueden procesar en más de 135 monedas, lo que facilita la venta y exportación a clientes de todo el mundo.

Cualquier emprendedor o empresa mexicana puede empezar de inmediato y crear una cuenta de Stripe. Si necesitas ayuda o tienes cualquier comentario, ¡contáctanos!

Designing accessible color systems

Daryl Koopersmith and Wilson Miner on October 15, 2019 in Engineering

Color contrast is an important aspect of accessibility. Good contrast makes it easier for people with visual impairments to use products, and helps in imperfect conditions like low-light environments or older screens. With this in mind, we recently updated the colors in our user interfaces to be more accessible. Text and icon colors now reliably have legible contrast throughout the Stripe Dashboard and all other products built with our internal interface library.

Stripe launches in Malaysia

Sophie Sakellariadis on October 7, 2019

Today, we’re happy to officially launch Stripe in Malaysia. Businesses all across the country can now easily accept and manage payments, and access the full Stripe stack including Billing, Connect, Radar and Sigma.

More than 80 percent of Malaysians already access the internet and as many as two-thirds of them do so via their smartphones. Despite the continued growth in connectivity, the country’s internet economy remains a small fraction of the overall GDP. With today’s launch, we want to help thousands more entrepreneurs and companies in Malaysia grow and scale their online businesses domestically and internationally.

Since our beta launch earlier this year, we’ve been able to partner with several Malaysian companies leading the charge. These include e-commerce startups like FashionValet and Flower Chimp who serve customers around the region, companies with innovative new business models like dahmakan and RAGE Coffee, and platforms and marketplaces like SOCAR and Easystore which in turn enable thousands of entrepreneurs to start and scale their own businesses.

Through the feedback of these early partners and hundreds of others across the country, we’ve shaped our products to meet the local needs of Malaysian businesses.

Online Bank Transfers with FPX

Bank transfers are one of the most popular payment methods for online consumer transactions in Malaysia, and we’re excited to announce that Stripe is now a third party acquirer for FPX. Through this partnership we’ve sought to build the most frictionless FPX payments flow in the market and will be revealing several new features previously unavailable in Malaysia. These include quick and easy onboarding for merchants, the ability to refund transactions effortlessly, and real-time feedback on whether FPX payments are successfully processed–helpful to both merchants and consumers. We’ve also looked to minimise the number of redirects in the FPX checkout flow to help optimise conversion rates.

The FPX beta program will support payments via seventeen local banks, ensuring that domestic and global merchants can seamlessly offer a relevant local payment experience to Malaysian consumers.

You can get started right away with a Stripe account. If you have any feedback, please let us know!

Hari ini, kami amat bangga untuk memperkenalkan dan mengumumkan pelancaran rasmi sistem pembayaran atas talian - Stripe. Peniaga di seluruh Malaysia kini boleh menerima dan menguruskan pembayaran, serta menggunakan keseluruhan perkhimatan yang disediakan termasuk Billing, Connect, Radar dan Sigma.

Lebih 80 peratus rakyat Malaysia mempunyai capaian kepada internet dan dua pertiga daripada mereka menggunakannya melalui telefon pintar. Walaupun kadar capaian internet di Malaysia terus meningkat, aktiviti ekonomi yang berasaskan internet masih berada pada paras yang rendah berbanding KDNK. Dengan pelancaran Stripe, kami berharap untuk membantu lebih banyak syarikat dan usahawan di Malaysia mengembangkan perniagaan atas talian dalam pasaran tempatan dan antarabangsa.

Sejak pelancaran beta oleh Stripe pada awal tahun ini, kami telah dapat bekerjasama dengan beberapa syarikat tempatan yang berpotensi tinggi. Ini termasuk startups e-dagang seperti FashionValet dan Flower Chimp yang telah berjaya menembusi pasaran serantau, syarikat-syarikat dengan model perniagaan yang berinovasi seperti dahmakan dan RAGE Coffee, serta platform perniagaan atas talian seperti SOCAR dan Easystore yang seterusnya membolehkan ramai usahawan untuk memulakan dan mengembangkan perniagaan mereka sendiri.

Melalui maklum balas daripada rakan-rakan perniagaan tersebut dan pihak-pihak lain yang terlibat, kami telah dapat menyesuaikan produk kami untuk memenuhi keperluan perniagaan tempatan.

Transaksi Bank Atas Talian dengan FPX

Pemindahan bank adalah kaedah pembayaran yang paling popular untuk urus niaga pengguna dalam talian di Malaysia, dan kami gembira untuk mengumumkan bahawa Stripe kini merupakan pemeroleh pihak ketiga untuk FPX. Melalui kerjasama ini, kami berusaha untuk membina aliran pembayaran ketiga yang paling lancar di pasaran dan akan mendedahkan ciri baru yang sebelumnya tidak tersedia di Malaysia. Ini termasuk proses penyesuaian yang cepat dan mudah untuk peniaga, keupayaan untuk mengembalikan transaksi dengan mudah, dan maklum balas masa nyata jika pembayaran FPX berjaya diproses - membantu peniaga dan pelanggan mereka. Stripe juga mengurangkan bilangan pelencongan dari FPX untuk meningkatkan kadar penukaran.

Melalui FPX beta, Stripe menyediakan kemudahan pembayaran melalui 17 bank tempatan, bagi memastikan peniaga domestik dan antarabangsa dapat menawarkan khidmat pembayaran tempatan yang relevan kepada pengguna di Malaysia.

Anda sudah boleh menggunakan Stripe dengan serta-merta. Jika anda mempunyai sebarang maklum balas, sila tujukan kepada kami.
