There are millions of websites being built every year, many of which need to take payments from customers. But integrating a payment system within a website is tough to do. And with more and more financial transactions taking place, usability, safety and security are hot topics. Enter Stripe, ExactDrive's credit card processing partner.

They’ve received $130 million in funding from the likes of Sequoia Capital and PayPal co-founders Peter Thiel, Max Levchin and Elon Musk.

Stripe provides a fantastic alternative to the hassle of setting up a merchant account. And while Stripe’s fee per transaction is slightly higher than that of their more traditional card-based competitors, the cost to the website owner is lower because of the lack of setup fees, monthly fees, validation fees or card storage fees. And due to the fact that Stripe only earns that fee after a successful payment, there’s no charge for failed payments either. With Stripe, you even have the ability to offer coupons and vouchers to your customers. This is a payment solution that’s built with your bottom line in mind.
