Rage. Stripe hitting a little downtime is nothing in comparison.
Serious kudos to their team and hope they get this resolved soon :)
Never used Stripe's API myself, but it sounds like they are vastly reliable beyond these blips.
Edit: Actually looks like that page doesn't have an RSS feed, never mind
Edit: update if anyone cared, API seems back up and we have ordered food! :)
Is that even feasible with Stripe?
Obviously there would be security considerations.
(We wrote a payments abstraction library easy enough to (partially or fully) fill for any payment provider’s core functionality, so it’s literally just a couple more lines of code at the call site. It took several rewrites to get the abstraction to cover all the oddities each time we added a new provider implementation, though!)
