Hi, Stellar community!
We’re Julien and Bastien from CashNotify, the app for monitoring Stripe payments from your menu bar. We launched it in June 2017 and have a community of enthusiastic entrepreneurs as our customers.
Our project for the Stellar Build Challenge is to make CashNotify compatible with Stellar accounts. Within the same app, merchants will be able to monitor their Stripe and Stellar accounts.
The Stellar accounts feature is in public beta, sign up on cashnotify.com/stellar/ to try it!
Why are we building this?
We believe in new payment methods for online merchants. We love Stripe but it has some disadvantages, mainly:
- Only available for merchants in 25 countries
- High fees
- Very few alternatives to paying by credit card
We think that we’re going to see more and more merchants accepting cryptocurrencies in the near future. And they will want to monitor payments from their menu bar!
We’ve been blown away by the quality of the documentation, the API’s design, and the tools for developers. The Stellar platform make us happy to write code. We believe in its mass adoption potential.

Do you want to try it?
CashNotify was created by listening to our customers. Many features wouldn’t exist without their input. We want to keep building this way and we’d love to hear your opinion on the app as we build it.
Sign up on cashnotify.com/stellar/ to try our public beta with your Stellar account.
Thanks for reading and good luck with what you’re building today!
