Few pointers that highlight why Stripe stands out and why we usually recommend Stripe for online payment processing
Stripe supports monthly recurring payments.
Stripe comes with Google Pay and Apple Pay options - so if you’re on your phone or computer with these options enabled, users can finish donating in seconds. This really helps in improving the overall giving experience and hence the campaign's success.
Stripe’s infrastructure is straightforward and easier to build upon - so any further upgrades to Almabase payment workflows (Say, refunds for example) would be built on stripe first before we start working on the other payment providers.
User Experience - stripe opens a popup on the same screen, within your website itself i.e. users can complete the process without leaving the page - with others, it redirects to a different webpage to complete the payment.
