How does this impact my business? If you’re using Stripe, these features could tremendously benefit you.

Usage-Based Payments

Commonly referred to as ‘pay-as-you-go’ model, this lets you track usage incurred over a determined period. Say you have data-upload systems and you want to drive pricing by consumption, you will now be able to offer flexible pricing based on usage.

Or say that you are building an AI bot that augments your business. Using this model, you will be able to charge the user based on when and how much they use your AI bot instead of charging them flat fee.

Clients can now leverage Stripe APIs to track usage and offer tremendous benefits to their customers. Imagine how easy it will be to upsell clients based on usage-based scenarios as opposed to fixed-pricing. Your on-boarding flows will completely change.

Adaptive Pricing

With Adaptive Pricing, you will allow customers to pay in the currency of their choice based on Stripe’s latest exchange rates. Customers will see prices converted to the relevant local currency based on their location, the exchange rate applied, and supported payment methods; they will still have the option to pay in the original currency you set or your prices.

If you’re building a global platform that services customers all over the world, Stripe will now allow them to pay in the currency of their choice from 40 countries.


We can see the Organizations becoming one of the most loved feature for many customers. At TicketBlox, we have multiple Stripe accounts for different regions of the world. With Organizations, you can now bring all your accounts under a single umbrella and perform customer search universally using Stripe Sigma.

A/B Testing

Stripe now allows A/B Testing a payment method! Want to see which method of payment works better? Look no further. Stripe allows you to have granular control over payment method rules.

Pre-Built Components for Stripe Connect

Stripe Connect now offers embedded components that you can use anywhere for scenarios like on-boarding to reporting.

Want to quickly show payment information on your Web page? No problem, Stripe’s got you covered.
