What does Stripe do well? Stripe is a simple solution for me to take online payments. I have Stripe integrated with my Squarespace website so that people can order from my online store. And I love that it automatically transfers the money to my bank account. It's basically a set it and forget it type service, which makes it appealing for me as a solopreneur.
What does Stripe not do well? I've been using it for over a year with no issues. It's simple to use.
What do you wish you had known about Stripe before using? Didn't really know it existed until I needed it, but now that I do, it's been great.
Have you used a competitor to Stripe? If so, how does it compare? I used WePay in connection with a previous invoice software. It works much the same way, and I don't remember any issues with it. I do really like Stripe's user interface, though.
