Stripe Payments extension integrates Stripe payment services into Magento 2. The module supports all standard Magento 2 payment actions including creating orders from the admin panel, authorizing and capturing, invoicing and partial invoicing, refunds and partial refunds, Magento Vault (stored cards for later use) and more. Besides that, we implemented useful advanced features available for Stripe such as multi-currency orders, different Stripe accounts for different websites, expired transaction processing, specifying credit card types for specific countries and other.
In order to accept payment through Stripe on your website, you require registering a merchant account. Stripe will charge 2.9% + $.30 per successful transaction for non-European cards and 1.4% + 20p for European cards. You can check the pricing for your country here.

PCI is an information security standard for organizations that handle branded credit cards. Stripe has the highest rate of PCI certification. Stripe gets PCI compliance for your payments by implementing Stripe’s client-side tokenization in Stripe Elements.
Allows customers to save credit card details to use them for future purchases. When a customer makes his/her order on the checkout page and fills up the credit card data, he/she can choose to store the data for later use. Completing the next order will allow the customer to use already saved credit card data not typing it one more time.
There are two behaviors for payments processing and one must be set according to business processes. Authorize helps you only to authorize an order amount and manually capture it by creating invoice when it’s required. An authorization locks the order amount in the customer’s bank account until the merchant captures it. For example, the transaction can be captured when you ship the products to the customer. Authorize and Capture action tells Stripe to capture a transaction at the time of creating order. The transaction will transfer the order amount from the customer’s bank account.
When a payment was authorized and not captured yet, merchants can perform cancellation of the transaction from admin panel so the transaction will be released.
Stripe supports two-step card payments so you can first authorize a charge, then wait to settle (capture) it later. When a charge is authorized, the funds are guaranteed by the card issuer and the amount held on the customer’s card for up to seven days. If the charge is not captured within seven days, the authorization is canceled and funds released. With the extension, you can charge for invoice total amount as a new transaction. It works only for customers who have stored credit card and have requested funds on their bank account.
Partial invoicing is possible only if Authorize payment processing is used. The administrator adds a few products from an order to an invoice. A total amount of the invoice is captured from order transaction. Since only one capture is possible for a transaction, the rest of order amount will be released. Next invoices for the same order are possible with usage a stored credit card.
This option will help to protect merchants from the payment made by fake card or invalid cards. Credit Card Verification will stop payments when the CCV of a card fails to pass or is invalid. Once a customer added some credit card information on the checkout page, the extension will show and highlight the type of used card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express etc.).
An admin can specify in the configuration panel specific credit card types for specific countries. For example, you can specify to allow only American Express for the United States.
Stripe has a great feature to receive payments in multiple currencies. Stripe accumulates separate balances for each currency. If possible, Stripe automatically sends payouts to an associated bank account (or debit card) for each currency, thereby avoiding exchange fees. Stripe Payments extension allows you to choose whether you want to process payments in base currency or actual order currency.
Instant Purchase is a feature allows making one-click purchases for customers who have pre-selected default billing and shipping address as well as default stored card in Magento vault. This feature is completely supported by Stripe Payments extension.
This extension works with online Credit Memo function which refunds captured transaction amount back to customer’s bank account.
This option is very helpful when a customer completed an order and you don’t have all products in stock so you have to refund part of a payment. Also, it’s required returns management.
