Using Stripe Checkout

When you check out on the website of a Merchant that has Stripe Checkout enabled, we will ask you if you’d like us to remember you. When you allow us to remember you, Stripe will store certain identifying information, such as your email address and your mobile phone number (“Stripe Credentials”), and your Payment Credentials. Information stored as part of your Payment Credentials may include information such as your name, the account number and the expiration date, as well as associated information like your billing address and shipping address. The advantage of remembering you is that it will make your checkout quicker and easier if you come back to the same website, or to any of the other Merchants that use Stripe (a “Stripe Enabled Merchant”) – this can be especially handy when you’re on a mobile device or don’t have your credit card in front of you.

If you elect to allow us to remember you, Stripe will use cookies to link your web browser to your Stripe Credentials and recognize when you visit a Stripe Enabled Merchant. If you come to a Stripe Enabled Merchant and we don’t recognize you (for example, because you’ve cleared your cookies, logged out, or you’re using a different device), we will provide a way for you to identify yourself and login via your Stripe Credentials (for example, by sending you a verification code via SMS text message). While you are logged in, Stripe will give you the ability to make purchases using your stored Payment Credentials. Stripe may also allow you to make a purchase with your Payment Credentials by sending a message directly from the email address or phone number stored as your Stripe Credentials (for example, to authorize a purchase via SMS).

If you send us text messages, or have us send you one, don’t forget that your carrier might charge you for that. For more information on how we use cookies, please view our Cookie Policy.

Stripe’s Role.

Stripe Checkout enables you to store your Payment Credentials, but it doesn’t change anything else about your relationship with the Merchant you’re paying or your bank or credit card company. Stripe will, however, use reasonable efforts to keep your Payment Credentials secure.

You are ultimately responsible for the purchases you make using Stripe Checkout. Also, the Merchant is the one responsible for providing you the goods or services that you purchase using Stripe Checkout, not Stripe. Stripe Checkout may display, or link to, the terms and policies that attach to a product or service sold by a Stripe Enabled Merchant. For example, Stripe Checkout may display, or link to, a Merchant’s policies with respect to returns, refunds, and exchanges. The content of any such policies is chosen by the Merchant, and Stripe does not control, or have any responsibility for, the Merchant’s compliance with the content of its policies and terms. If you believe that a Merchant has failed to comply with its terms or policies, or any other obligation imposed by applicable law, please contact the Merchant directly.
