Stripe is an online credit and debit card payment system used by US and Canadian companies of all sizes to set up and accept recurring payments from customers. Stripe’s system also allows for one-time payments and metered billing, and features a flexible API that developers can use to easily modify payment options and integrate with other programs and website features. Stripe Subscription Billing allows businesses to set up billing periods of any whole number of months, include free trial periods, and base subscription plans on quantity rather than time. Stripe offers instructions on how to implement subscription billing for your company on its website.
Stripe was founded in 2011 and is based in San Francisco, California. The company seeks to streamline the web payment process, making it more transparent and easier to use for both businesses and customers.
