Financial Infrastructure Platform Stripe Launches Unified Commerce Solutions in Australia

Stripe, a financial infrastructure platform for businesses, announced that its suite of unified commerce solutions is now available in Australia, “including Stripe Terminal with Tap to Pay on Android for in-person contactless payments.”

In Australia, over three-quarters of consumer payments are “made with cards.”

By centralizing card payment data from all sales channels in one dashboard, Stripe’s unified commerce solutions “provide businesses with a comprehensive view of sales trends and customer preferences.” Businesses can “use this information to improve customer experiences and increase revenue opportunities.”

Karl Durrance, managing director for Australia and New Zealand at Stripe, said:

“We are excited to help more Australian businesses unlock the power of unified commerce with a single integration, to drive conversion and create cohesive experiences across siloed channels for businesses.”

One view with Stripe Terminal

Abacus, FareHarbor, and Splose are reportedly “among the fast-growing platforms in Australia using Terminal to power unified commerce.”

Terminal is “fully compatible with Stripe’s payments platform and Stripe Connect, allowing platforms to offer their business users the ability to accept in-person and online payments at scale.” In addition, Terminal says it “offers businesses various reader options and features, including on-reader tipping and offline mode.”

Peter Ling, CEO of Abacus, said:

“The integration of back-end financial operations with contactless front-of-house transactions provides a seamless customer experience and optimizes efficiency. We are proud to offer business owners a unified commerce solution powered by Stripe Terminal.” 

Oz Jet Boating, an adventure-tour provider, “uses Terminal to maintain a unified view of a customer’s transaction activity, even when that customer makes multiple purchases through different sales channels.”

Matt Hilder, owner of Oz Jet Boating, said:

“As Australia’s largest and longest-running jet boat operators, we’re all about entertaining our guests on the world’s most stunning harbor. Having the flexibility to accept online and in-person payments anywhere with Stripe Terminal enhances our ability to cater to our customers’ needs, and saves us time so we can focus on delivering an unforgettable jet-boat experience.” 

No extra hardware required

Australian businesses “can now increase their reach by accepting in-person contactless payments using just the Stripe Terminal SDK and an Android phone or tablet.”

This allows platforms “to reach markets and verticals that do not traditionally use payments hardware, such as tour guides, stylists, or plumbers.”

FareHarbor, which “provides activity and booking software for tour operators like Oz Jet Boating, is one of the first businesses on Stripe to offer its customers the flexibility to accept payments anywhere with Tap to Pay on Android.”

Setup takes just “a few minutes and creates a quicker checkout experience.”

Stripe reveals that it “supports the most essential credit and debit card payment methods in Australia including Visa, Mastercard, and eftpos, Australia’s local card network.”
