What we do
We started with building the simplest API for accepting credit cards.
Our initial product enabled payments for developers in the US wanting to transact in USD—a lot more qualifiers than we wanted.
Today, we support developers from a number of countries (and are expanding to even more), card payments in 135 different currencies, Bitcoin, ACH, and have a continually-improving checkout form. We've partnered with Apple to power Apple Pay, and helped launch a new cryptocurrency, Stellar. And we're really just getting started.
In everything we do, we strive to build the best possible product. Our goal is to combine simplicity and power to deliver an awesome experience. While the set of people using Stripe has expanded to include all the people that make a business possible, our core audience remains developers.
