Stripe offers a series of tools enabling you to accept payment in your app.
By activating Stripe in your shop, your clients will be able to:
- pay their orders by credit cards
- pay their orders with a credit card saved on browser (API Request)
- pay their orders with a credit card saved in your shop (Client account)
- pay their orders by Apple Pay
GoodBarber doesn't take any transaction fees on your sales, but Stripe bills you directly its service fee which are set depending on your Stripe account modalities and the country in which your shop is registered.
You can find the detailed Stripe pricing here: https://stripe.com/pricing .
GoodBarber chose to integrate Stripe as a mode of payment because it is a robust, secure and very easy to use service.
