This library contains a Perl 5 wrapper for the Stripe API. This wrapper allows developers to use Perl with the Stripe REST API. Stripe is a service that allows users to accept payments online, specifically developers. With the Stripe application, users can keep track of payments, search past payments, create recurring charges, and keep track of customers.
In a relatively short time, the Stripe API has become a popular choice amongst developers wanting to incorporate payments into their apps.
