Stripe Benefits and Fees

Modified on Thu, 10 Nov 2022 at 07:38 PM

Stripe offers a simple and convenient way for clients to pay invoices with a credit and / or debit card.

Tip: Stripe is fully integrated with Pet Sitter Plus, when a payment is received via Stripe, the invoice is marked as paid and the Payment recorded, dramatically reducing administration time.

Simple Fast Account Creation
If you don't currently have access to a merchant account or think you can't get one, think again. With Stripe, applying for an account is simple and quick. Accounts are generally approved in a few hours which means you could be taking payments from clients the same day you apply for your account.

A Gateway and Merchant Account in One
The world of credit / debit card processing is very complex with endless combinations of gateway providers and merchant accounts. Stripe removes the need to have a relationship with two more companies by providing both a gateway solution AND a merchant account in one simple integrated product. Stripe handles your payment from your client's credit card through to your bank account.

Take Payments in Bulk or Pay Now
Stripe enables you to take bulk payments from many clients in a single action, drastically reducing accounting time and improving cashflow. If you prefer, your clients can choose when to pay by clicking "Pay Now" from their online account.

One Simple Fee Structure
Traditional credit card processing solutions often promise low rates but the rates are either not realized or are negated by hidden fees and complexity. With Stripe, the fee structure is simple, transparent and guaranteed. One fee structure covers Visa, Mastercard and AMEX transactions so there are no surprises and no worry about varying complex rates and markups on interchange.

If you are in the US, you can take advantage of switching to ACH Payment Processing from Stripe, potentially saving you up to 60% on typical payment processing fees.
