If you are using Stripe in Australia, you probably just got this same email.
Good news! We’re lowering prices for accepting American Express cards in Australia, effective immediately.
The new price is 1.75% + 30c per transaction for Australian American Express cards. This is the same price we charge for Australian Mastercard and Visa cards. For international cards, we’ll continue to charge 2.9% + 30c per transaction. As always, the fee for each transaction will be listed in real time in your Dashboard.
There’s no action necessary and we’ve automatically applied the new price to your account. If you have any questions or feedback about this change (or about Stripe in general), please let us know.
Thanks for using Stripe!
This is extremely good news. If you are like me, you love using your Amex for the extra points (I have a semi-addiction to points). Now it doesn’t cost the business anything extra to use it.
