Merchant accounts, gateways, and Stripe
If you work with the legacy payments industry you may need to integrate and interact with multiple vendors to accept payments online (a merchant account to receive funds, a gateway to submit payments, maybe even a third service to manage recurring charges). Stripe is a complete solution that replaces all of the above. Stripe is designed to be simple—we accept your payment data and we deposit the funds in your bank account. As a result, you only need to work with us.
