Hi Mike, just wanted to add this link: http://fortune.com/2015/07/28/stripe-payments-startup/

“The race is on—especially overseas. This year Stripe plans to expand to Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, and Singapore”

Singapore and Japan already live, they are currently hiring for NZ… only HK missing

In this Nov 3 Stripe interview on Business Insider John says they are ‘beta testing in Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore’. Hong Kong the only one of those not listed on Stripe global! http://uk.businessinsider.com/interview-with-stripe-co-founder-john-collison-on-silicon-valley-and-the-tech-bubble-2015-11

[…] So I just got confirmation friends in Singapore are getting private invites to Stripe in Singapore. Checking the Stripe global page, Singapore is listed there. Tech in Asia heard rumors and it took a few months. Based on Stripe’s chat at Rise Conference in Hong Kong, they are coming soon, believe if they are in Singapore, they are soon to be in Hong Kong! I wrote up an article on Stripe in Singapore, Hong Kong Next? […]

hi Stephen,
Yes….I know … sigh! Atlas came out a couple weeks ago – but I am told…soon….from a few sources – i know how frustrating this is.

It doesn’t seem worthwhile to do the altas thing just to be able to use stripe though …

I just implemented one-time payment with braintree (using MeteorJS) yesterday, working fine with sandbox now… not terrible at all with their drop-in UI. Need to implement subscriptions later. Wonder how that would’ve compared to stripe.

No choice anyways at the moment … anyone has worked with both and know how they compare? Would it still be worthwhile to switch once I get used to braintrees API?

agreed on the no need for Stripe Atlas just for a merchant account. other points, also curious to hear from others.
