Yes, they are here. 

2.9% + NZD 0.30 per successful card charge.


What do you think about the price? are there any other good options?

From my basic comparisons for low value transactions, that's not too bad.  The majority of that 2.9% will likely go to the Merchant Service fees and Stripe themselves may only be pocketing the 30c.

Not bad. The merchant account is always the killer. I suppose Stripe bank on volume.

It's fair. eWay charges 2.7-3.4% depending on which plan you choose if you don't have a merchant account already. Plus their service is a nightmare compared to Stripe.


The only issue we had switching to Stripe was that they only settle into our account once a week, compared to when we used our ANZ merchant account with eWay which I believe was daily.
