Today, we’re happy to remove the beta label and to make Stripe available to tout le monde in France.
We’ve been testing Stripe in France for over a year and have already had thousands of French businesses start building on the Stripe platform. Companies like Withings and Dailymotion, SaaS platforms like Algolia and Dashlane, and even marketplaces like Drivy and KissKissBankBank. We’d like to thank them and the many others who have shared their feedback and suggestions along the way.
Everyone in France can now sign up in minutes and get access to the world-class Stripe stack that we’ve been building and optimizing for more than five years. Developers can charge customers in 100+ currencies (and a growing set of payment types), create subscriptions, or build global platforms with Stripe Connect. Pricing is simple and predictable: 1.4% + €0.25 for European cards and 2.9% + €0.25 for non-European cards.
We’ve also built a local team and now provide support for our users in French as well. Our France team hails from all across the country—Paris, Lyon, Avranches, and even the booming metropolis of Figarella in Corsica. Our office is based in the 2nd arrondissement in Paris.
Now that Stripe is publicly available in France, we’re looking forward to seeing all the new products and services that French entrepreneurs will develop with Stripe. We’ll be continuing to make changes to improve our service in France—drop us a line or tweet at @StripeFrance if you have any questions or feedback.
Lastly, we’re also hiring! Please get in touch if you’re interested in working with us on building the payments infrastructure of the internet.
