Extend Stripe payments to your point of sale

Stripe Terminal enables you to build your own in-person checkout to accept payments in the physical world. Built with platforms and modern retailers in mind, Terminal helps you unify your online and offline channels with flexible developer tools, pre-certified card readers, and cloud-based hardware management.

Unify your payments stack

Manage all your online and offline sales in one place with a single Stripe integration, simplifying reporting and reconciliation, and providing a unified customer view. Terminal works seamlessly with Stripe Payments, Connect, and Billing.

Own your in-store experience

Provide a seamless customer experience across channels, like reserving online and picking up in store. Our SDKs make it easy to integrate Stripe into your own mobile and web applications to create a customised in-store checkout flow.

Grow your platform’s revenue

Add in-person payments to your platform or marketplace. Using Stripe Terminal with Connect, you can onboard users for online and in-person payments, and unify their payouts across channels.

Scale with ease

Easily manage in-person payments logistics at scale with our centralised fleet management tools. Order and dropship new hardware, configure readers remotely, and monitor device status.

Use cases

In-person payments for any kind of business

Flexible API

Build your perfect point of sale

Break free from the constraints of off-the-shelf point of sale software. Stripe Terminal makes it easier to build your point of sale and own your checkout experience, including creating customised email receipts or reader splash screens. Our APIs and SDKs simplify the integration of Terminal into your point of sale application. You can build with our server-driven integration (US only), or with a platform-specific SDK using Android, iOS, or JavaScript.
