What is Stripe

Stripe is an online payment platform that will make it possible for you and your restaurant, bar, café, pub, or the like to receive online payments from your guests. 

Stripe accepts numerous card-payment methods (as well as wallet and bank payments), which will make it easier for you to charge your guests online while keeping the booking and payment process as easy and satisfactory for your guests (and you) as possible. And you only pay the standard Stripe transaction fee.
