"Lithuania has a lot of entrepreneurial and technological talent, and we believe even more of its companies could be expanding globally," says Felix Huber, head of Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa, at Stripe.

Stripe says businesses in Lithuania can start as of today accepting payments in over 130 currencies in as little as 10 minutes. In addition to accepting payments, companies can use Stripe to handle accounting, billing, paying out to third parties and optimizing for mobile payments—all from one centralized dashboard. Stripe users also get access to mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

The cost of Stripe services in Lithuanian will range from 1.4 percent to 0.25 euros for a suscessufl payment.

The platform processes payments from millions of businesses every year, including startups and major companies, like Google, Amazon, Uber and Shopify.
