Our mission is to increase the GDP of the internet. Stripe is a technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet. Businesses of every size—from new startups to public companies—use our software to accept payments and manage their businesses online.

Despite internet businesses growing faster than the rest of the economy, only about 3 percent of global commerce happens online today.

Regulatory complexity, a Byzantine global financial system, and a shortage of engineers are constraining the impact of the internet economy. Removing the barriers to online commerce helps more new businesses get started, expedites growth for existing companies, and increases economic output and trade globally.

Stripe combines a payments platform with applications that put revenue data at the heart of business operations. As the world’s fastest-advancing developer platform, Stripe gives businesses the tools and technology to build better.

We work with financial institutions, regulators, payment networks, banks, and consumer wallets so businesses who run on Stripe don’t have to. Millions of companies in over 120 countries use Stripe to start, run, and scale their businesses.
