Is this Stripe payment option legit. I am uncomfortable giving access to my bank account. Newbie.
Yeah, legit. Direct Deposit works well.
Yes, Stripe is a legitimate payment processing platform similar to PayPal, Shopify, etc. I know domain host GoDaddy.com uses Stripe as their payment platform and so does MeetUp.com. Other major businesses who use Stripe include Amazon, AliExpress, Apple, Etsy, Walmart, Target, Wayfair.
for the info on Stripe.
