Infographic: PayPal vs. Stripe
If you sell stuff online, you probably already used PayPal at some point. It was one of the first online payment solutions that worked across the globe and was easy enough to integrate with any type of website.

Over the last few years many competing solutions poped in the market, and Stripe is probably the most popular one.

Other examples can be seen in the works of geographers Ritter and Alexander von Humboldt.
