Ireland's deputy prime minister, Leo Varadkar, said in a statement the partnership between the Irish state and Stripe would create over 1,000 jobs in five years and boost Ireland's economy.

A senior executive at Stripe told Reuters in December that the company had plans to expand across Asia, including in Southeast Asia, Japan, China and India.

Of the 42 countries in which Stripe is active, the company said 31 are in Europe.

“While Stripe already processes hundreds of billions of dollars per year for millions of businesses worldwide, the opportunity ahead is much larger ... than it was when the company was started 10 years ago,” said Dhivya Suryadevara, Stripe's chief financial officer.
