Payment gateways are e-commerce application providers that authorize personnel to make online payments for e-businesses. There’s more to the application as it facilitates transfer of payment information between the host portal i.e. Either a website, mobile phone or a voice response service and the front end processor or the bank acquiring the payment.

Also Stripe provides subcription extensions, i.e., the details of a customer are set up in Stripe once he makes a payment, and when he returns, he’ll be able to checkout using the same card, which will save on the time for the returning customers.
