I've always dealt with my local bank. they have never heard of "Stripe" ... They have heard of and are familiar with "Authorize.net". What's the difference ? I'd like to keep using local ... that way, if i have a question about something, it's a quick call or email and i have my answer. Why is "Stripe" recommended ? - Thnx, Rick

Stripe is a good getting started option because there is no monthly charge. Of course their rates are likely to be higher than a paid merchant service. If you are an established business that makes regular sales, that lower transaction rate will probably pay for itself, but getting started it is nice to keep the regular costs down.

It really comes down to your business and what it best for you. If you like what you have and it is supported, then stick with it.
