Use cases

Billing and payments for modern SaaS businesses

Start now

Slack uses Stripe to accept payments from over 100K global customers.

A flexible billing system for any pricing model

Driving growth with price experimentation

Pricing can be a powerful driver of growth—sometimes more than customer acquisition. Learn how Statuspage, Zeit, and other Stripe customers have used pricing to demonstrate product value to their customers.

Reduce time and effort spent on billing

Send optimized invoices

Spend less time chasing payments—Stripe-hosted invoices get paid 3× faster than traditional invoices. Stripe’s prebuilt, compliant invoices make it easy to charge customers in the US, CA, AU, NZ, and across Europe.

Automate common tasks with webhooks

Get notified when a payment succeeds, fails, or if the state of a subscription changes. Use webhooks to programmatically trigger actions like sending follow-up emails or updating plans.

Handle subscription updates without custom code

No need to write custom code to handle mid-cycle upgrades, proration, coupons, or metered billing. Stripe gives you the flexibility to support customers however they use your products.

As WeTransfer scaled, they outgrew their homegrown billing and payments system.

Solution

Instead of spending months refactoring their in-house system, WeTransfer built an extensible billing system with Stripe.

Impact

Stripe helped WeTransfer add support for flexible pricing plans, multiple currencies, and global payment methods. They also automate their payment collection process and improved fraud detection.

Products used

Stripe offered what we needed out of the box—plus we wanted a system that we could reason about, good documentation, and had existing integrations with essential third-party tools.

A payments platform engineered for growth

Retry failed payments with ML

On average, 9% of subscriptions fail on the first attempt. Stripe uses machine learning to find the best retry messages and routing combinations, recovering 41% of payments that initially fail.

Accept global payments

Expand to 34+ countries and support dozens of popular local payment methods with a single unified API. Stripe helps you launch in new countries quickly and compliantly.

Auto-update expiring cards

Stripe partners directly with card networks to automatically update cards. Subscriptions can continue without interruption or requiring customers to re-enter card details.

Optimize authorization rates

Stripe increases payment authorization by using machine learning to test and optimize authorization requests across tens of thousands of issuers globally.

Add new business lines

Use Stripe’s suite of products to help your customers accept payments from within your app, add support for in-person payments, or even extend capital.

Instant metrics and insights

Identify opportunities by measuring every part of your funnel. Review essential growth metrics, retention patterns, cohort performance, and more from the Stripe Dashboard.
