Stripe, a very popular and very reliable payment service for developers has at last come to the UK and Europe.
Stripe allows website owners and developers to accept payments online from anyone with very little work. Signing up for an account is free and you only get charged when a transaction is made, at a rate of 2.9% and $0.30 per transaction. Stripe handles everything for you, including storing card details, subscriptions and payouts. The service has been made to be easy and reliable, unlike the dastardly PayPal which has been pain in the backside for many people, including myself.
Seriously, forget using PayPal and switch over to Stripe. You won't have your money held for long periods of time for no absolute reason, like PayPal do.
