Stripe launches its online payment processing platform in Ireland

Stripe is launching its online payment processing service to the public (and therefore finishing up its private beta) in Ireland today. Pricing is set at 24 cents, plus VAT and 2.4 percent of each customer transaction.

It continues the company’s steady roll-out across Europe; Stripe launched in the UK back in March and is currently available as a private beta in Belgium, France and the Netherlands.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

“To date, online payments infrastructure in most of these countries, including Ireland, has been dominated by lumbering incumbent banks,” Stripe’s Darragh Buckley said. “Accepting internet payments involved weeks of setup, reams of paperwork, and bureaucratic approval processes. We want to fix this.”
