Yes, finally! Got them added to a personal project of mine
I work at Stripe's London office. Good news: we have launched in the UK!
Here's our blog post: http://stripe.us7.list-manage.com/tr...c&e=498db1e72f. I wanted
to get in touch to thank you for your support and feedback during our beta.
You've helped shape the product we're proud to release today.
In addition to now being available to everyone, we have some new updates:
multicurrency support, American Express, and updated pricing.
You can now charge in USD, GBP or EUR. If you don't have a bank account for a
given currency, we'll automatically handle the conversion for you. This means
that you can charge in USD or EUR and have us transfer the funds to your
regular GBP bank account. Read more: http://stripe.us7.list-manage.com/tr...a&e=498db1e72f
You can now accept all American Express cards in addition to Visa and
MasterCard. There is no setup required and no additional fees.
Next, we've lowered our pricing: Stripe now starts at 2.4% + 20p per
transaction + VAT. We're going to make this rate apply retroactively: we'll
shortly issue you a refund for the difference in fees for any payments you've
processed at our previous beta rate of 2.9% + 30p. Volume pricing is
available for businesses at scale—please get in touch if you expect to
process more than £250,000 in the next year. Read more: http://stripe.us7.list-manage.com/tr...8&e=498db1e72f
We've opened an office here in London covering everything from engineering to
support, and we're excited about how our global expansion helps us provide
you with improved service when you need it.
If you have any questions about our launch, let me know. We're hugely
grateful for your support and we'd love to hear from you.
That's great Alex. I have been using them for approximately 6 months now I think and no complaints either. Payments are always on time and I generally handle fraud from my end so no issues with chargebacks either
I have yet to look into Stripe, but I've been seeing more and more about it recently. The currency conversions look really appealing, although currently with my target market it doesn't make too much of a difference. Based on the recommendations here I'll definitely be looking into it.
