Stripe is the secure payment processor that Tixoom uses in the background to efficiently handle your customers' payments and ensure you get paid.

Reserved funds are used by Stripe to prevent negative balances due to disputes and refunds. Most reserves Stripe places are temporary. There are a number of reasons that Stripe might place a reserve on an account. To learn more about some of the most common reasons for reserves, see Stripe reserving funds.
