There is no charge for setting up your Stripe account. In the UK and Europe we just us it for Credit and Debit cards. In the US we use it both for ACH "Autopay" and taking Credit and Debit cards. It's not expensive to take a card and it's a lot better than having to chase up payments. The charge for using Stripe varies by country see Cost of taking Payment
