Stripe has announced a range of product and partnership updates for businesses operating in France. This represents Stripe’s largest set of new products for the French market since launching in the country in 2016.

Alma, a buy now, pay later (BNPL) provider in France will be available as a payment method for all Stripe users. It can be turned on directly from the Stripe Dashboard with no code required.

Alma is one of 100 payment methods available in Stripe’s Optimised Checkout Suite (OCS), including Apple Pay, PayPal, and Alipay. French retailer La Redoute has more than $1bn in annual revenue, and immediately unlocked 2% of additional income, simply by switching to OCS.

Stripe is accelerating the deployment of Stripe Terminal’s unified commerce capabilities in France. 

Planity, Frichti, and Hertz already use Terminal to unify their online and offline revenue streams.

Stripe’s latest smart reader, Stripe Reader S700, is now available in France. The S700 provides a fully customisable platform for bespoke commerce experiences like taking orders, offering loyalty programs, collecting customer information, and more.

Stripe has also introduced a pre-built integration with Cegid, a leading retail unified commerce point-of-sale solution. Businesses using Cegid can now easily use Terminal to collect in-person payments without writing any code.

Stripe is strengthening its partnership with CB, a French payment system, which handles 15 billion transactions per year. Stripe now natively supports CB on Apple Pay, enabling French businesses, from local retailers to multinationals operating in France, to maximise payment acceptance and conversion rates with a cost-effective integration.

Loÿs Moulin, head of development at CB, said: “We are extremely proud of this partnership with Stripe. We welcome the efforts made by Stripe to innovate and generate value for French businesses and enterprises selling into France.”
