Stripe vs Paypal

So I always hear every now and then about a horror story with Paypal locking up an account for somebody. I currently use Paypal with all of my clients because it is so big that pretty much everybody has at least heard of it.

While I never personally have had any problems the thought is always in the back of my mind. I plan on redesigning my development site soon so I’ve been playing around with the idea of implementing Stripe and having clients pay on the site. I know Stripe is a lot younger but I have yet to hear of any issues with it.

Just curious if anybody has attempted this before for client type of work? I know people have done it selling themes/plugins but I think clients may be a little bit hesitant at first.

If you have tried it, did you notice any slowdown or questions from clients?
