Payments updates

Eduardo Serrano on June 4, 2018

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

NewMore European payment methods

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.

NewIBAN support in Stripe Elements

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.

NewFaster iDEAL flows with Stripe Elements

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.

NewChina UnionPay cards

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

NewMicrosoft Pay

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.

UpdateMastercard Series 2 cards

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.

If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know!
