Fintech Nexus Newsletter: Stripe's Embedded Finance Initiatives (April 25, 2024)

Stripe announces decoupling payments from its stack, allowing companies with existing processors to use their products, targeting large enterprises.

Have you ever wanted to access the wide range of products offered by Stripe without having to process payments through their platform? Well, now you can! At the recent annual conference in San Francisco, Stripe's Chief Product Officer, Will Gaybrick, announced a groundbreaking change. The company is now allowing businesses with existing contracts with other processors like Adyen or PayPal to utilize any of Stripe's products.

This new development is specifically aimed at large enterprises that may be hesitant to break their current payment processing contracts. While Stripe initially focused on assisting small businesses, they have now shifted their attention to the corporate market. In fact, over 100 companies processing at least $1 billion annually are now utilizing Stripe's products.

Just last month, Stripe proudly announced that they processed over $1 trillion in payments volume in 2023. With this latest move, Stripe is further solidifying the trend towards embedded finance, where payments are decoupled from the rest of the financial stack.

As the largest privately-held fintech company with a valuation of around $65 billion, Stripe is leading the way in the financial technology sector. Meanwhile, in Mexico, the rise of neobanks is creating fierce competition in Latin America's second-largest economy. Over two dozen neobanks are competing for digital customers in this rapidly growing market.
