Stripe is our preferred method of taking credit card payments online because of the lower fees, more streamlined user experience and automatic transfers sent straight to your nominated bank account.
Stripe fees vary from country to country. But for those based in Australia, Stripe fees are 1.75% + $0.30 per transaction compared to PayPal which is 2.4% + $0.30 per transaction. The rate for other international cards is 2.9% + $0.30 USD for including American Express cards.
