Stripe is a payments processing company that offers digital financial solutions for businesses around the world. Notably, Stripe supports Apple Pay, which lets customers authorize payments with Touch ID without having to manually enter card or shipping details. Stripe’s services are available to big merchants and sole proprietors alike.
- When funded with Apple Pay, a credit card or debit card, transactions have a fee of 2.9% plus $0.30.
- When funded with a bank account, transactions have a fee of .8% unless the payment amount exceeds $625, in which case the fee is capped at $5.
- When currency conversion is required, Stripe does not charge a foreign transaction fee. However, Stripe does convert funds at a rate that's approximately 2% higher than the daily mid-market rate.
Transfers take place on a routine basis depending on your preferences.

- Transfers can alternatively be set to arrive on a weekly or monthly basis.
