Setting up Stripe ๐Ÿ’ต

This project makes use of Stripe Dashboard to keep track of product inventories, and billing.

Create Stripe Account

You will need to create a Stripe account if you don't already have one.

Stripe Keys

There are also two types of API keys: publishable and secret.

  • Publishable API keys are meant solely to identify your account with Stripe, they can safely be published.
  • Secret API keys should be kept confidential and only stored on your own servers.

Your API keys are available in the Dashboard.

Test and Live modes

The test and live modes function almost identically, with a few necessary differences:

  • In test mode, payments are not processed by card networks or payment providers, and only test payment information can be used.

IMPORTANT The products that you create in your store will be tied to either your test or live key โ€” make sure that you don't set up your entire suite of products on the test key, and then are unable to make your store live!

Test payment information

Use the following test card numbers, a valid expiration date in the future, and any random CVC number, to create a successful payment.
