2015 - Payment processing company Stripe partners with Visa to keep up with Skrill
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.
