The hosted demos linked above are running in test mode -- use

4242424242424242
as a test card number with any CVC + future expiration date.

Use the

4000002500003155
test card number to trigger a 3D Secure challenge flow.

Run the sample locally

This sample can be installed two ways -- Stripe CLI or git clone. The

.env
configuration will vary depending on which way you install.

Requirements

  • A Stripe account: You can sign up for a Stripe account here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/register
  • Stripe API Keys: Available in your Stripe dashboard here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/test/apikeys
  • 2 Prices: This sample demonstrates two tiers of pricing. You'll need two Price objects on your Stripe account with
    lookup_key
    set to
    sample_basic
    and
    sample_premium
    . See How to create Prices below for more information.

Installing the sample

The Stripe CLI is the fastest way to clone and configure a sample to run locally and is the recommended approach as it will only download the code required for the server language you select. Alternatively, you can download and run directly with this repository.

Option 1: Installing with Stripe CLI

  1. If you haven't already installed the CLI, follow the installation steps. The CLI is useful for cloning samples and locally testing webhooks and Stripe integrations.

  2. Ensure the CLI is linked to your Stripe account by running:

stripe login
  1. Start the sample installer and follow the prompts with:
stripe samples create subscription-use-cases

The CLI will walk you through picking your integration type, server and client languages, and partially configuring your

.env
file with your Stripe API keys.
  1. Move into the server directory:
cd subscription-use-cases/server
  1. Open
    server/.env
    . The
    STATIC_DIR
    value should be
    ../client
    when installed using the Stripe CLI.
# Stripe keys
STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY=pk_12345
STRIPE_SECRET_KEY=sk_12345
STRIPE_WEBHOOK_SECRET=whsec_1234

Stripe key for React front end

REACT_APP_STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY=pk_12345

Environment variables

STATIC_DIR=../client

  1. Follow the instructions in

    server/README.md
    for how to build and/or run the server.
  2. View in the browser: localhost:4242 and test with

    4242424242424242
    .
  3. [Optional] Forward webhook events

You can use the Stripe CLI to forward webhook events to your server running locally.

stripe listen --forward-to localhost:4242/webhook

You should see events logged in the console where the CLI is running.

When you are ready to create a live webhook endpoint, follow our guide in the docs on configuring a webhook endpoint in the dashboard.

Option 2: Installing manually

If you do not want to use the Stripe CLI, you can manually clone and configure the sample:

  1. Clone the repository
git clone [email protected]:stripe-samples/subscription-use-cases.git
cd subscription-use-cases
  1. Configure
    .env

The

.env
file contains the API keys and some settings to enable the sample to run with data for your Stripe account.

Copy the

.env.example
file from the root of the project into a file named
.env
in the folder of the server language you want to use. For example with node:
cp .env.example fixed-price-subscriptions/server/node/.env
cd fixed-price-subscriptions/server/node

For example with ruby:

cp .env.example fixed-price-subscriptions/server/ruby/.env
cd fixed-price-subscriptions/server/ruby
  1. Edit the copied
    .env
    and populate all of the variables. For more information see:
    .env
    config
# Stripe keys
STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY=pk_12345
STRIPE_SECRET_KEY=sk_12345
STRIPE_WEBHOOK_SECRET=whsec_1234

Stripe key for React front end

REACT_APP_STRIPE_PUBLISHABLE_KEY=pk_12345

Billing variables

BASIC=price_12345... PREMIUM=price_7890...

Environment variables

STATIC_DIR=../../client/vanillajs

  1. Follow the server instructions on how to run:

Pick the server language you want and follow the instructions in the server folder README on how to run.

cd fixed-price-subscriptions/server/node # there's a README in this folder with instructions
npm install
npm start
  1. [Optional] Forward webhook events

You can use the Stripe CLI to forward webhook events to your server running locally.

If you haven't already, install the CLI and link your Stripe account.

stripe listen --forward-to localhost:4242/webhook

You should see events logged in the console where the CLI is running.

When you are ready to create a live webhook endpoint, follow our guide in the docs on configuring a webhook endpoint in the dashboard.

How to create Prices

With Stripe CLI Fixtures

Use the

seed.json
fixture file:
stripe fixtures seed.json

With Stripe CLI API calls

Or run the following commands and copy the resulting IDs.

stripe prices create --unit-amount 500 --currency usd -d "recurring[interval]=month" -d "product_data[name]=basic" --lookup-key sample_basic
stripe prices create --unit-amount 900 --currency usd -d "recurring[interval]=month" -d "product_data[name]=premium" --lookup-key sample_premium

With cURL

Replace

sk_test_xxx
with your secret API key:
curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/prices \
  -u sk_test_xxx: \
  -d "unit_amount"=500 \
  -d "currency"=usd \
  -d "recurring[interval]"=month \
  -d "product_data[name]"=basic \
  -d "lookup_key"=sample_basic \
curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/prices \
  -u sk_test_xxx: \
  -d "unit_amount"=900 \
  -d "currency"=usd \
  -d "recurring[interval]"=month \
  -d "product_data[name]"=premium \
  -d "lookup_key"=sample_premium \

.env
config

Example configuration file

.env.example

  • STRIPEPUBLISHABLEKEY: Found in the dashboard here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/test/apikeys
  • STRIPESECRETKEY: Found in the dashboard here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/test/apikeys
  • STRIPEWEBHOOKSECRET: If using the Stripe CLI (recommended) run
    stripe listen --print-secret
    , otherwise you can find the signing secret for the webhook endpoint in the dashboard by viewing the details of the endpoint here: https://dashboard.stripe.com/test/webhooks.
  • STATIC_DIR: The path to the directory containing the client side code. For vanillajs on the client, this will be
    ../../client/vanillajs
    .

FAQ

Q: Why did you pick these frameworks?

A: We chose the most minimal framework to convey the key Stripe calls and concepts you need to understand. These demos are meant as an educational tool that helps you roadmap how to integrate Stripe within your own system independent of the framework.
