I got this in an email overnight from Stripe:
We’re lowering our prices for our European users, effective as of December 9th. There’s no action necessary and we’ll automatically apply the new price to your account.
Our new price for users in Spain will be 1.40% + 25c for all European cards and 2.90% + 25c for all non-European cards."
I have no idea why they suddenly dropped their rate for European cards from 2.9% to 1.4%. I can’t find any news about it, apart from the email I received. But I’m not complaining. As 70% of my customers are in Europe, this gives me a small but appreciated Christmas (and ongoing) bonus.
