Give customers a full-featured dashboard to manage payments

Unified platform

Support customers with any business model

Give customers access to Stripe’s entire suite of features: our products are designed to work together, making it easy to expand your offerings with minimal engineering investment.

Launch global payments

Optimise invoices for fast payment

Get your customers paid up to 2 weeks faster by adding online payments within your invoices. You can also optimise recurring invoices by saving card details. Stripe works directly with card networks to update expiring card information.

Add subscriptions and loyalty programs

Give customers the ability to launch subscriptions or memberships, free trials, coupons, and more with Stripe Billing. You can also set up recurring payments and enable smart tools to reduce churn.

Unify online and in-person payments

Let customers accept in-person payments from your platform. With Stripe Terminal, you can customise every part of the point-of-sale experience, including branded card readers.

Differentiate your platform

Let Stripe manage the complexity of compliance, licensing, and card network rules so you can easily onboard and pay out customers in 35+ countries without needing to establish local entities.
