This may be due to the fact that stripe offers certain services that are important to e-commerce business owners. There are now new technology developments in the horizon as e-commerce progresses.

Another technological development that threatens to change the way we do deliveries are autonomous drones. Although these developments are not at an advanced stage, autonomous drones seem be the way to go when it comes to delivering products.
