I signed up for this company to process payments for my business and after I charged my customer's card, they emailed me and told me:

I emailed them and told them that I have the credit card authorization form that was faxed to me from my customer and this is what they emailed me and said:
Please feel free to send that information along. Unfortunately, Stripe is still unlikely to be able to process payments for your site, as email is not a guarantee of authorization. As stated previously, our banking partners restrict us from processing payments that are unlikely to have received cardholder authorization.
I would still recommend getting in touch with your customers to arrange an alternate form of payment in case we cannot work with you, but please do forward the authorization form along.
I think this company is a HUGE scam and they are taking your customer's card information. Beware of Stripe, they are phishing for your card information as their system obviously does not work.
When you visit their Community Chat, almost every 'potential customer' is complaining about them.
They are a complete rip-off!!!
Don't waste your time!!!
