You have everything you need for your business: one-of-a-kind products, an awesome website, and a solid marketing plan.

But how will you—you know—actually take money from your customers? After all, you're not a banking whiz.

That's where Stripe comes in. Stripe is a developer-friendly way to accept payments online and in mobile apps. The app powers commerce for thousands of companies of all sizes, processing billions of dollars annually for businesses. Whether you're creating a subscription service, an on-demand marketplace, an eCommerce store, or a crowdfunding platform, Stripe's meticulously-designed functionality helps you create the best possible payment experience.

With Stripe, you can process payments from a website or app, and even collect money due from invoices. You can accept not only credit card payments, but also those from ACH bank transfers, popular European payment gateways, and mobile payment solutions.

Setting up payment processing on a website can often involve a lot of coding, compliance, and connecting with payment processors to get your account ready. Stripe reduces these challenges by offering a few different ways you can set up the payment processing service, like integrations in a tool that already works with Stripe (such as an eCommerce app), Stripe Checkout, and Stripe's APIs.

Once you've launched your site or app, you can log into Stripe's dashboard to see data about your account and manage your customers, products, subscriptions, and more. A dashboard shows your sales and successful charges, along with an option to switch your account between testing and live so you can try new changes without affecting your site. You can dig through customer data and see details about each payment. You can also report fraud or refund the payment partially or in full if needed.

Getting paid doesn't have to be difficult. Stripe makes it easy for you while also giving your customers and clients a professional experience. It's a simple way to accept payments from anyone, anywhere in the world, no matter how they want to pay.

You can automate your payments with Zapier's Stripe integrations. Here are a few popular Stripe automations to get you started.
