Batch multiple transactions from one customer into a single charge

Can I group together charges from a single customer so I don’t have to pay the Stripe fee on each one?

If you want to group several charges from a customer into a single charge, you first need to save the customer’s payment information.

Once that’s done, you can either: * Bundle up the payments locally and create a charge automatically through your own system, or * Subscribe your customer to a $0/month plan and create an invoice item for each small payment. By default, we’ll pay the invoice automatically with each billing cycle. Alternatively, you can create the invoice immediately and pay it.

PayPal vs Stripe vs vs Amazon Payments – Which Is Best for a WordPress Site

A few key points to consider:

PayPal Standard is available in 203 countries.

Next up we have Stripe, arguably the most popular PayPal alternative available.
Why is Stripe so popular? Because it gives you the opportunity to take on-site payments without the monthly fee. If you’re a WooCommerce user wanting to integrate Stripe using the official extension, it will set you back $79, though.

Stripe is a slightly trickier proposition to configure, especially vs PayPal Standard – after all, Stripe is targeted at developers. If you know what you’re doing, though, or you’re willing to hire someone, then Stripe is one of the best payment gateways for the job.

Stripe also has an effective anti-fraud team on-hand to deal with any dubious transactions. It supports recurring payments out-the-box, too, and is one of the best solutions for international businesses – you can accept over 100 currencies, which are automatically converted to your default currency.
Here is a summary of the all-important key points:

Stripe is currently available in 21 countries, with more expected to be added. (Vs PayPal, it’s not a lot)

Scaling your API with rate limiters

Concurrent requests limiter

Instead of “You can use our API 1000 times a second”, this rate limiter says “You can only have 20 API requests in progress at the same time”.

.. Fleet usage load shedder

We always reserve a fraction of our infrastructure for critical requests. If our reservation number is 20%, then any non-critical request over their 80% allocation would be rejected with status code 503.
