Developers First

We believe that payments is a problem rooted in code, not finance. We obsessively seek out elegant, composable abstractions that enable robust, scalable, flexible integrations. Because we eliminate needless complexity and extraneous details, you can get up and running with Stripe in just a couple of minutes.

const stripe = require('stripe')('sk_test_BQokikJOvBiI2HlWgH4olfQ2');

// Create your first payment from a test card.
const charge = await stripe.charges.create({
  amount: 2000,
  currency: 'usd',
  source: {
    number: '4242424242424242',
    cvc: '123',
    exp_month: 12,
    exp_year: 2018
const stripe = require('stripe')('sk_test_BQokikJOvBiI2HlWgH4olfQ2');

// Save customer details and payment information.
const customer = await stripe.customers.create({
  source: token, // Token retrieved from Stripe.js, Checkout, or native apps.
  email: ''

// Charge or refund customers anytime using their saved payment details.
let charge = await stripe.charges.create({
  amount: 7999,
  currency: 'eur',

charge = await stripe.charges.refund(, {
  amount: 1000
const stripe = require('stripe')('sk_test_BQokikJOvBiI2HlWgH4olfQ2');

// Create a monthly plan.
const plan = await stripe.plans.create({
  amount: 999,
  currency: 'usd',
  interval: 'month',
  name: 'Sapphire Complete',
  id: 'sapphire-complete-957'

// Subscribe the customer to the plan while applying a coupon.
const subscription = await stripe.subscriptions.create({
  coupon: '25OFF'
const stripe = require('stripe')('sk_test_BQokikJOvBiI2HlWgH4olfQ2');
const moment = require('moment');

// Fetch the latest transactions from the Stripe account.
const transactions = (await stripe.balance.listTransactions({limit: 75})).data;

// Check what was the most recent transaction.
const latestTime = moment(transactions[0].created * 1000).fromNow();
console.log(`Latest transaction: ${transactions[0].type}, ${latestTime}`);

// Plot the evolution of the Stripe balance in USD over the latest transactions.
let balance = 0;
const balancePlot = => balance += txn.amount / 100);
