Don’t limit business growth by using Stripe Tax

Stripe Tax is significantly limited in its functionality and support when compared to Kintsugi. Especially for growing businesses, Stripe Tax pricing eats into margins by enforcing a per transaction fee. Kintsugi’s pricing is flat-rate, upfront, and has no per-transaction fees, allowing your business to predictably manage cashflows and keep margins where they should be.

What are you risking by using Stripe Tax?

We listen and hear the feedback ex-Stripe Tax customers share with us. At Kintsugi, we take this feedback very seriously. Having constant contact with our customers allows us to innovate quickly and build something better than previous-generation systems like Stripe Tax. Here we explore the top 4 complaints we commonly encounter from our ex-Stripe Tax customers.

High transaction fees

Stripe Tax charges a fee per tax calculation, which can add up quickly for businesses with high transaction volumes. The fees are 0.5% per transaction, or 0.4% for businesses processing over $100,000 per month.

Stripe Tax’s pricing is often out of reach for small businesses, which is hard to justify given higher-tech options like Kintsugi at a far lower price point. Kintsugi’s pricing begins at $0 per month for the Starter tier and includes all the features you would otherwise need to pay for when testing out Stripe Tax for your business. All this, and no credit card required to get started.

User interface and usability Issues

Ex-Stripe Tax users report difficulties in understanding how different configurations affect tax calculations. This can lead to confusion and inefficiencies, particularly for businesses managing complex tax scenarios or selling in multiple jurisdictions.

Kintsugi’s platform is free to try, easy to navigate, and the user experience has been streamlined to stay as simple as possible while ensuring rooftop-level accuracy on the backend. Kintsugi has been built specifically for businesses looking to manage complex tax scenarios, especially those that operate in multiple jurisdictions.

Complex setup and integration

Ex-Stripe Tax users report that the setup process is drawn-out and unnecessarily complex. Even integrating it with other Stripe services and configuring tax settings requires a thorough understanding of the platform. Setting up origin addresses, selecting appropriate tax codes, and configuring registration details can be time-consuming and confusing, especially for those without a technical background.

Kintsugi handles the entire setup and integration process for you and our flat-fee includes additional support for VDAs, reseller agreements, and back taxes. With the help of Kintsugi’s proprietary AI algorithm, Kintsugi Intelligence, the automated setup of origin addresses, selecting appropriate tax codes, and configuring registration details are included in Kintsugi’s flat fee.

Customer support issues

Ex-Stripe Tax users report slow response times and unreliable support from Stripe Tax’s customer service team. These issues are particularly problematic during critical tax periods when timely support is crucial to ensure compliance and avoid penalties.

Kintsugi’s customer success team prides itself on being proactive when it comes to critical tax periods. This includes getting current on back taxes at onboarding and maintaining VDAs so you maximize tax discounts and minimize penalties. And for any eleventh-hour questions, you’ve got TaxGPT, a 24/7 GPT powered by Kintsugi Intelligence, a proprietary AI algorithm that has codified the entire US sales tax code. Now that’s accuracy!
