Made our first $1M in Stripe!

2.5 years using Stripe as our payment processor and we just hit our millionth dollar earned there. Wow!

We accept money via PayPal too so we technically hit this milestone a little while back. But it's awesome to see "1M" right in our Stripe dashboard for all-time revenue generated.

Huge shout out to our team. What a fantastic group of folks who work smart and hard every day. You're the best, Buffs!

Next financial milestone: 1M ARR (83K MRR).

  1. 2

    How much of that does Stripe take?

    1. 1

      ~2.9%. $28,104 over this time period.

      1. 3

        Joe go to them and negotiate. Depending on your MRR your can get that down. 2.5% should be your long term goal.
