Simple online payments company Stripe quietly launched jQuery.payment , library of code for building credit card forms, validating input, and formatting numbers. It’s basically a library that helps developers build better payment forms, regardless of whether they are using Stripe or another payments platform. For background, Stripe is a developer-friendly online payments system that allows developers to avoid setting up merchant accounts and dealings with banks, while still ensuring transaction safety. The company competes with the likes of PayPal and Braintree, and is backed by General Catalyst, Sequoia, Peter Thiel, Max Levchin and Elon Musk.
