Back again for Showwcase - a network built for coders.
We're introducing a paywall for content creators on the platform to start accepting payments from their Followers for premium and unique content over and above the general free content. We are internally considering either Stripe or Paypal to handle this for us.
If we take the pricing out of the debate, what's the go-to choice when choosing which to integrate? Our current standpoint is that Paypal has wider consumer adoption and since most creators are individuals, it makes sense to just use Paypal because they already have an account. However, our business uses Stripe, and so it makes it easier if both the platform (Showwcase) and creators to be on Stripe platform. That being said, if creators don't already have an account, they will need to sign up with Stripe on the spot which is a friction point.
Would like to hear the pros and cons in developer environments as well as any other things we might not know, aside from the pricing issues.
