World Payment Platform Stripe, one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the world, is officially established in Slovenia today. The platform enables online businesses to start and grow their business globally, and to receive payments from anywhere in the world.

The Stripe platform processes billions of dollars annually for millions of businesses, including startups and large companies such as Google, Amazon, Uber and Shopify. In Slovenia, Minimaa and Treo are already using the Stripe platform to offer their goods and services to customers worldwide.

"Slovenia has many entrepreneurial and technologically talented people and we are convinced that even more companies from Slovenia could expand globally," says Felix Huber, who leads Stripe in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. "The Stripe platform is intended to enable even more Slovene companies to export their creativity and ambition to others around the world."

In just a few clicks from Slovenia to the world

Slovenian companies can today start accepting payments in more than 130 currencies in just 10 minutes. For the first time, the Stripe platform gives these companies access to their global payments and treasury network. Businesses can use the Stripe platform to accept payments, as well as manage accounting, invoicing, payouts to third parties and optimize mobile payments - all from one centralized dashboard. Stripe platform users also get access to mobile wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay.

In addition to the challenges of managing multiple currencies, fraud is often one of the main inhibitors for businesses that want to sell to buyers around the world.
