Stripe, the payments firm started by Limerick brothers John and Patrick Collison, has launched a new partner programme aimed at giving its users access to potential new business partners.

The new programme is kicking-off in Ireland with local internet firms such as Intercom and Tito.

Big international online companies such as Docusign and Shopify are also on board as launch partners.

"Partners have integrated with Stripe for years," said Claire Hughes Johnson, Stripe's chief operating officer. "In fact, more than half of our fastest-growing users take advantage of one or more Stripe extensions.

"But as Stripe is increasingly getting pulled upmarket, our users have asked for an easier way to discover new platforms and apps, so we're delighted today to announce our Partner Programme."

Under the scheme, partners also get access to a new partner portal with educational materials.

"We're delighted to be one of the first to join Stripe's Partner Programme," said Paul Campbell, co-Founder at Tito.

"Our mutual customers benefit from the combination of Tito's ticketing platform for events with Stripe's seamless payments platform as both systems aim to provide a stress-free transaction process. We're excited to support the programme's long-term mission of bringing more commerce online."

A company spokesman said that for every €1 Stripe makes, partners can expect to make €1.42.

"We're thrilled to be one of the first to join Stripe's Partner Programme," said Seamus Smith, vice-president of Sage. "Our mutual customers benefit from the combination of Sage Business Cloud with Stripe's payments platform."
