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 e-commerce, 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.
