We recommend Stripe for website payment processing

06th May 2022

Back in February 2022, we wrote an article informing our readers about the upcoming changes in payment gateways to ensure all websites are now offering Secure Customer Authentication (SCA). This was a huge shift in the way payment gateways process online transactions with one primary goal in mind, to reduce fraud from online transactions.

Whilst the transition for some payment gateways has not been as smooth as it could have been, the need for the change to happen is clear. In 2020 Fraudulent Transactions in the UK hit a record high of £159.7 million.

Over the last few months, eckhoMedia has been working with a range of our web design clients to assist with these industry wide changes.

Some payment gateways have simply not been fast enough to update plugins or make the necessary changes to hosted payment processing pages. Because of this, we had to weather the storm of problems these changes have caused and eckhoMedia is now proud to recommend Stripe as our preferred payment gateway to all of our eCommerce web design clients and OpenCart Web Design clients.

Stripe Benefits

  • Stripe is an all in one payment gateway that is regularly updated to ensure it is always compliant with our client’s website requirements
  • It offers to process credit/debit card payments as standard but where it stands out is that it can also process Apple Pay, Google Pay, Afterpay/Clearpay,  Klarna, and many more
  • The Stripe interface is very clean and easy to use for reporting and transaction monitoring, quickly highlighting if any transactions have had any issues
  • Stripe transaction fees are very competitive with all other payment gateways available on the market and in some cases much cheaper

What our Clients Say

We starting working with eckhoMedia towards the end of last year (2021), for a complete re-design of our website. Our current website was not meeting the business needs. We set a call with Rick and Simon, who both took the time to understand our business and created a fantastic looking website, which we are very proud of. The journey from start to finish was flawless and both Simon and Rick were on-hand every step of the way, to ensure the best possible outcome. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
