What is it
Stripe is what they call a Payment Service Provider. That is, Stripe acts as an intermediary for sellers and the authorized credit card networks/financial institutions, to authorize and accept payments. Stripe has no set-up fees, monthly fees or hidden costs. It does, however, have per-transfer fees that are charged on a per-payment basis.
Are you perhaps using another Payment Service Provider, those of Payvision, then it's good to know that ING is ending the partnership.

Eventually, sex workers want them to just be accepted at banks, but until then, this can be a nice "workaround.
