Stripe: Not Just For Zebras Anymore

Hi everyone. For those of you I haven’t met, my name is Reilly and I’m a product manager at Bonanza. I lurk behind the scenes, researching new features and working closely with our designers and developers. Don’t worry, Grace is fine! She’s passing me the blog baton this week to announce a feature I’m so excited to share with you.
