Stripe is the Worst Payment Processor

This story is short and concerns my worst experience to sign up and complete the registration process to become a user of I just finished writing a review of my nightmares with Stripe whose staff have no good support nor even understand the importance of simple “customer service”. Here is the link to my review on I don’t know why medium does not want to use PayPal, my best and preferred payment processor and will give it 5 stars rating any day due to its support and help anytime of the day. PayPal does not operate faceless platform and provides many ways by which users can lodge complaints, resolve issues quickly and much more.

A second issue that I have was that medium decided to keep silence on this occasion why Stripe is the preferred payment option for its partner program. I had started the registration process on the 19th of December 2022 and had success completing the processes on Christmas day (25/12/22) with help and assistance from both my bank and telephone provider. For me, stripe became compulsory because “medium” will not accept other payment methods like PayPal.

To make matter worse, I decided to check the reviews left by users of medium, guess what, has 72% 1-star rating, 1.9% with the highest rating of 2-star with no responses to at least clear the issues on the aggrieved users. I find this hard to believe and will really appreciate if the community and the new owner can investigate this. This is not acceptable to me by all standards.
