Meet the Team

Back in early 2014, we set out with a goal to create a WordPress plugin that let site owners quickly setup and start accepting credit card payments with Stripe. We wanted it to be as lightweight as possible. No other eCommerce, form builder or membership plugins required.

Since then our core mission has remained the same: Leverage the valuable services and tools Stripe provides and keep setup time to a minimum. You should be up and running in minutes, not hours. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
