A reader pointed out this merchant services provider to me, so I checked it out. I ran into some concerns as I reviewed their documentation that I want to share with you all so that you have a better understanding of what Stripe does and provides.
The PCI SSC really needs to get on top of service providers and their claims. It troubles me that this service provider is making claims that are totally incorrect. It is these sorts of claims that get good people get into trouble. Most developers and their organizations do not have the necessary detailed understanding of the PCI standards and therefore trust service providers to be the experts which, in the case of Stripe, they are obviously not experts and are just as clueless.
