Switch To Stripe and Get Paid Every 7 Days!
When it comes to selling tickets for your event, you will already have a million and one things to think about, but have you thought about how you are going to collect your money?
While there are various payment providers like PayPal, many are highly priced and criticised for being unintuitive and come with frequent negative customer service baggage.
The hottest payments service at the moment is Stripe. The fact that more and more high profile companies such as Foursquare are migrating to Stripe, speaks very highly of the service. At Get Invited we’re also huge fans of Stripe and offer it as a payment option in addition PayPal. Because of this, we thought we would highlight just some of the many benefits of Stripe for you as an event organiser.
1. Easy sign up
Stripe’s sign-up process requires very little information. You don’t have to call anyone or fill out seemingly endless forms, and money can be deposited directly into any bank account. In addition, setting up a Stripe account is 100% free and the process is incredibly simple.
2. Get paid every 7 days
With, Stripe you’ll get paid from your ticket sales every 7 day. In comparison, as PayPal don’t directly deal with refunds, the money from ticket sales has to be kept, and can’t be released, until 60 days after the transaction.
3. Excellent customer service
Stripe go to considerable efforts to ensure that their customer service first class. Therefore, not only do they have free email support, they also have an IRC channel (#stripe on Freenode) where customers can chat live and get help from engineers.
Furthermore, if you decide that Stripe isn’t for you, they’ll help you transfer your data over to your new provider. This is a refreshing approach as most other vendors make this difficult or charge you a fee.
4. Superior security
While security is something all of the leading payment services take very seriously, Stripe intrinsically encourages world-class security by storing card data in their vault.
For us, using Stripe ensures we are automatically PCI compliant as we don’t handle any sensitive credit card data on our servers. Importantly, this compliments our existing security practices and ensures that an unlikely breach of our servers won’t result in any stolen credit card data. For you this makes for a much more secure payment process, and one less thing for you to worry about.
Anyone can sign up to Stripe and with Get Invited. So if you want a service that has excellent security, great customer service and will pay you every 7 days, switch to Stripe today!
