We implemented Stripe to make it easier to collect payments and manage your program obligations with parents and guardians. Stripe offers the best online payment solution in the market, recently named one of Forbes 10 Best Credit Card Processing Companies. Their standard payout is two business days and the funds are deposited directly into your school or booster club's account. They provide one of the industry's highest levels of security and reliability and the lowest fees for processing transactions. Best of all, Stripe enables us to provide you with detailed reporting on your transactions so you have the full visibility to sort out any potential payment issues that may arise.
