Stripe Concerns


#1

Purism is a company which advocates for digital privacy and technology which respects our freedoms, but I have some concerns about the use of Stripe to process payments for Purism products.

When I get to the checkout page on the Purism store, I am told there are EIGHTEEN cross-site trackers, pretty much all from Stripe. I decided to look into this after seeing this blog post:

Stripe’s response:

Here they claim that is only to prevent fraud, but I am curious is any privacy-conscious people here have recommendations for payment processors who don’t collect this data.

Ooh. Seems interesting. Kinda spoopy. I am not really sure about payment processes so gl with your research.
