This new partnership opens the door of simplicity for online merchants everywhere. With Stripe, e-tailors will never need a merchant account or gateway. Stripe handles everything, including storing cards, subscriptions and direct payouts to a merchant's bank account.
"Stripe is thrilled to partner with PrestaShop's free, powerful and open source e-commerce platform. Over 125,000 merchants enjoy PrestaShop's straightforward management interface and robust tools, enabling them to start an online store today. We're excited to empower PrestaShop merchants with Stripe payments in one easy click," said John Collison, Stripe's Co-Founder.
Stripe is one of the easiest and most effective payment solutions on the market, and PrestaShop is proud to offer it as a native feature.
"Stripe takes about five minutes to configure and offers a handful of revolutionary features. For example, merchants using Stripe can offer full or partial discounts with a simple click of the mouse. Customers can also choose to safely store encrypted payment information so as to expedite all future purchases," said Matt Serralta, Chief Operating Officer at PrestaShop.
Stripe's pricing is 2.9% plus 30 cents per successful charge. There are no setup fees, no monthly fees, no card storage fees and no hidden costs. In other words, merchants only get charged when they earn money, and all earnings are transferred on a seven-day rolling basis.
