2015 Payment processing company Stripe partners with Visa


Payment processing company Stripe is now valued at $5 billion following its latest round of financing. Besides, the company raised almost $100 million and inked a deal with Visa which will see the duo work together on a range of projects, including digital transactions and security. The company has been focused on growing its international footprint for some time, which is another reason it is teaming up with Visa. CEO and co-founder Patrick Collison told The New York Times that Stripe will lean on the payment giant’s international presence and know-how to expand its current coverage of 20 countries.



2015 Stripe released iPhone app for monitoring payment activity


Stripe, a service that companies can use to accept payments, has a new way for businesses to track purchases and user activity — an iPhone app. It does basically everything its existing online dashboard does, but brings it to an interface more suited for a mobile device. Businesses can also set up notifications for whenever a payment or purchase is made or set up a daily summary. Stripe’s iPhone application also has a search function. But a mobile application is naturally good to have around. For a business owner stuck in traffic in a taxi, Uber or Lyft (don’t look at your phone while driving, please), or riding some kind of public transportation, it’s a good way to get a quick update to what’s happening.
