Stripe is one of new kids on the block when it comes to payment gateways and has become very popular very quickly. It offers a level of simplicity that gateways such as Worldpay simply cannot match, from setting up an account to interacting with their API, Stripe have tried to cover every base and do it well.
Over the coming weeks I shall be writing about how to build a multi-tired payment system using Stripe Connect, the basic concepts behind Stripe connected accounts, sharing customers across Stripe connected accounts, using StripeJs to become PCI compliant and validate cards easily.
I will try and give as many code samples where possible, but with such great documentation and a brilliant API, it is more about understanding the concepts than pure code.
As an introduction checkout the Stripe documentation
