"Stomp" is regional dialect. While it's now included in various American dictionaries, it comes from the Standard English term "stamp." So in a place where everyone uses "stomp," it would be understood and not stand out, but technically, it's not correct in formal English. If you want to use local terms, "stomp" is fine in the U.S. But I'm an older American and when I hear the term "stomp" it still jars me because I grew up speaking Standard English.
