    As I understand that, Stripe doesn't support Indian business to accept payments from Indian and outside India.

    Do you develop or customize any Indian payment gateway or Wallet (e.g. ccAvenue/Paytm/PayUmoney) to integrate with SE site??

    How Indian business will be benefited with SE site??

    I've been looking for a much simpler solution to my site's ecommerce, and this is it! It installed seamlessly on my site and so far my users are loving it and are choosing Stripe over PayPal for its simplicity and ease of setup.

    Great job well done SocialEngine Addons!

    If you don’t intend to generate cash from your website then STOP READING. However if you do, believe me, this plugin handles everything top to bottom, left to right, A-Z. This is literally the TOTAL solution for monetizing all SE websites.

    First you must know that stripe is the industry standard for many of the larger players like lyft, kickstarter & shopify. A big reason why is Stripe connect facilitates the marketplace business model intuitively. Stripe literally does ALL the work from commission splits and transfers to facilitating all financial transactions with virtually no effort from the buyer or site owner. Thankfully SEAO brings the exact same power to the SE community! One of the many powerful features I noted is my options to customize how funds are received and dispersed. In addition, site owners do get paid quicker!

    Automation is everything when trying to run a profitable site and with this plugin from Socialengineaddons, I swear you will breathe a sigh of relief once you install this plugin and let it do ALL the difficult “financial stuff” for you. SEAO have made it EASY EASY EASY to monetize all SE sites the right way which is easy, effortless and automated with this Stripe Connect plugin.

    SEAO makes the financial transaction experience so simple & pleasant. But, here is why I know Socialengineaddons is the only viable choice. First they have already built a rock solid suite of plugins that can facilitate any type of venture, (ie, ticket selling, e-commerce, events… etc) then SEAO made this Stripe plugin compatible with virtually all of them. This means all you need is SEAO!!! From themes, plugins, services and now even the best financial control of your site using the Stripe plugin SEAO is infact the complete solution to whatever you can dream.

    I love them as they have shown time and time again over the years, they know business and they FULLY support anyone who does business with them. Save yourself time & and money, get this plugin and ALWAYS go with the trusted developers of Socialengineaddons!!!!! I have used them for years and they have never let me down.

    If you are not willing to stick to Paypal or 2Checkout this plugin is essential when working with SEaddons. You can easily integrate new payment providers with little progamming effort. This is quite useful if your are operating in different countries and customers are demanding different payment options. Nicely build and perfectly integrates in the other plugins of SEaddons. The best plugin ecosystem I know for the Social engine plattform. Will always recommend.
