Stripe Inc. has stopped processing payments for President Trump’s fundraising apparatus. Directly, that is.

The financial-technology company continues to process payments for intermediaries that route donations to Mr. Trump, after cutting off his campaign for violating its policies against encouraging violence.

Visitors to the Trump campaign website who click on a button to contribute are directed to a webpage hosted by WinRed, the small-dollar fundraising platform for Republican candidates and political-action committees. WinRed is a Stripe customer, and Stripe processes payments submitted over WinRed via that link, according to a review of its source code and people familiar with the matter.

The WinRed-hosted webpage tells visitors that donations go to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee composed of the Trump campaign, Mr. Trump’s Save America political-action committee and the Republican National Committee.

A Stripe spokesman declined to comment. Representatives for Mr. Trump’s campaign didn’t respond to a request for comment.
