Transaction safety

Transaction safety:
All payments using a card are made through the STRIPE online payment platform.
HTTPS and HSTS for secure connections:
Stripe forces HTTPS for all services using TLS (SSL), including our public website and the Dashboard.
  • Stripe.js is served only over TLS
  • Stripe’s official libraries connect to Stripe’s servers over TLS and verify TLS certificates on each connection

We regularly audit the details of our implementation, including the certificates we serve, the certificate authorities we use, and the ciphers we support. We use HSTS to ensure that browsers interact with Stripe only over HTTPS. Stripe is also on the HSTS preloaded lists for both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Encryption of sensitive data and communication:

All card numbers are encrypted at rest with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. None of Stripe’s internal servers and daemons can obtain plaintext card numbers but can request that cards are sent to a service provider on a static allowlist. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in a separate hosting environment and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services (API, website, and so on).

Accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and China UnionPay payments from customers worldwide.
