Payments updates

Eduardo Serrano Global - LATAM

We’ve added a number of new features to Stripe Payments over the last few months that might be useful for your business:

More European payment methods New

U.S. and European Stripe businesses can now reach more customers worldwide by supporting popular European payment methods like Bancontact, giropay, iDEAL, Sofort, SEPA Direct Debits, EPS, and P24.

IBAN support in Stripe Elements New

We’ve added IBAN support to Stripe Elements. U.S. and European businesses can now easily collect international bank account numbers to create SEPA Direct Debit sources or bank account tokens. The IBAN Element reduces user error with instant client-side formatting and validation of IBANs from all SEPA countries.

Faster iDEAL flows with Stripe Elements New

Customers in the Netherlands can now pick their bank before starting the iDEAL payment flow using Stripe Elements. Instead of having to visit an intermediate redirect page, they can now immediately get to their bank’s website to complete the payment.

China UnionPay cards New

Customers can use China UnionPay credit cards to pay U.S. Stripe businesses—there’s no additional integration required.

Microsoft Pay New

We’ve added support for Microsoft Pay to help customers using the Microsoft Edge browser checkout faster. Our single integration now supports Apple Pay, Google Pay, Microsoft Pay, and the Payment Request API—a browser standard that lets customers quickly enter payment info they’ve stored in their browser.

Mastercard Series 2 cards Update

Stripe supports all Mastercard cards, including the newest cards that start with 2 (known as Series 2 BINS). In case you’ve previously built custom logic to reject some cards, please verify you’re not excluding these customers.

We hope that these new features will help your business. If you’re new to Stripe, you can explore all of our payments features or see a demo of them in action.
