What do Stripe metrics mean?


Since Stripe is a payment platform, all its metrics relate to money. Let’s have a look at the most important metrics which you can request Statsbot right now - just type "@statsbot name of the metric". 

MRR. Monthly recurring revenue is the ultimate force behind any SaaS business. It’s the summary of all of your active subscription customers, minus any discounts. Your MRR grows with an increase in new customers, returning customers, or upgrading customers. MRR decreases when users cancel the subscription or downgrade.

Active Customers are the people which pay you money. So this metric exclude those who are on a free plan, test trial, have full price discounts or have paid you for a one off purchase but not a subscription.

Revenue is net revenue - all money received from selling minus all costs that you need to pay. 

ARR. Annual run rate is the current value of your business as a predictor of future performance over the next year. It’s calculated as MRR x 12.

New Subscriptions is the metric of all subscriptions in a specific period, for example in last month. It’s not the same as active subscriptions which means all subscriptions at the end of a period.
