With Stripe every go-to-market strategy is an engineering project 🚧
Stripe solves only one piece of the payment problem for SaaS, but your go-to-market strategy goes beyond just payments.
Selling subscriptions? You need to buy and integrate recurring billing, SaaS metrics, and dunning.
Selling internationally? You need to integrate new currencies, payment methods, and local Stripe accounts.
Selling into enterprise? You need to integrate invoicing, Salesforce, and custom billing logic & provisioning across every negotiated deal.

The Stripe stack is not a short cut
Yes, Stripe’s APIs are beautifully elegant, but they’re only one piece of the puzzle.
Integrating any new payment methods (like PayPal), subscription billing logic, currencies, invoicing, fraud tooling, tax compliance is anything but elegant when all put together. 😩
Each of these tools charge their own fees on top of Stripe and take your engineering weeks to evaluate, integrate, and maintain.

🎣 Stripe leaves you on the hook for compliance
Stripe just takes payments. Your finance team has to handle all the problems around those payments:
Calculating the correct sales tax
Registering & filing taxes
Recognizing & reporting revenue
This costs additional headcount for financial controllers, tax accountants, and administrators - all on top of Stripe fees (usually the 2nd-most expensive tooling in a SaaS business after their own product’s hosting - especially with international payments.).
