Hi Fellow Hackers,

I'm Sunil from India. I'm planning to build an application where I would like to receive payments from different countries. I'm not looking for accepting payments through links/ko-fi/donate buttons etc. In my use case first I take card details from customers. If they fail to do some activity, then I'm gonna charge them using the card details collected earlier. What are the payment gateway integrations I can use?

I have created an account on Stripe. But currently Stripe is not supported in India. Only people from specific set of countries can activate their account and can start using Stripe APIs. So Stripe is not an option for me.

I was also looking at Razorpay, which is from India and is very similar to Stripe. But Razorpay currently doesn't support solo developers.

What are my other options to receive payments from customers through their card details?

PS: I'm trying to avoid using PayPal as much as possible. If I don't have any other option at all, then I'll think of using PayPal.

Any help/comments are appreciated.

Hi. I'm Alessandro from Brazil. Enable cryptocurrency wallets. You can also accept Bitcoin as your payment way.

But the problem would be not many people have bitcoins. If it's card then almost everyone can pay.

Paypal or Braintree?? I've used Braintree. It's Stripe's analog. About PayPal you know, I think.
P.s. Braintree is PayPal's service. Earlier it was startup, which was bought by PP
