We considered PayPal as an option, but in the end we couldn't use it. Three reasons:

  1. Privacy. When you pay with PayPal, they can see everything.

  2. High Fees. If you start using PayPal, they don't let you leave, and their fees are ridiculous.

  3. Track record. Time and time again, people report PayPal freezing their funds and only releasing them after a public out-cry. That's not the kind of business we want to work with.

So we're sticking with Stripe. If you're nervous about paying with Stripe, please head over to their gallery page. Kickstarter, Twitter, Reddit - all their payments are powered by Stripe. They're PCI Service Provider Level 1, which means they adhere to the most stringent security measures possible.
