You're welcome. I should also mention that one of the points of using
Stripe is ensuring that credit card numbers never pass through the
Evergreen server, thereby significantly simplifying attaining PCI
compliance. The long list of domains to allow is part of the tradeoff.
Of course, nobody can guarantee that Stripe will never get subverted
to the point where their systems distribute malware that would affect
the OPAC stations, but Stripe has every motivation to work hard to
prevent that, as that would be the sort of mistake that would cause
existential problems for their business.

The library was not comfortable allowing the full domain, so I suggested adding the 30 or so domain names that Stripe suggests - https://stripe.com/docs/ips.

The most I can suggest is asking Stripe directly whether any of the domains on that list (e.g., dashboard.stripe.com) are not strictly required for the payment integration itself, as opposed to the websites that the library would need to access in order to manage their Stripe account.
