Stripe

Overview

Stripe App is a payment integration app that allows merchants to accept online payments from customers using Stripe as their payment processor. Stripe is a popular global payment provider that offers a range of payment methods, including credit cards, bank transfers, and digital wallets.

You can find an example of using the Stripe App at https://github.com/saleor/example-nextjs-stripe/.

caution

To configure the Stripe App, you must have an account with Stripe.

The Stripe App allows for integrations with Stripe Payment Element, meaning it can be used on Web, iOS, Android, and React Native. Under the hood, it creates Stripe Payment Intents and handles calculations of total and balance in Saleor automatically.

info

Stripe App uses Stripe API version 2022-11-15.

Capabilities

The Stripe App implements the following Saleor synchronous events related to transactions:

Furthermore, it's also prepared to handle Stripe incoming webhooks.

Stripe App follows the flow described in detail in the Saleor Payment App documentation.

Configuration

For Stripe to appear as available payment gateway, you need to install it in the Saleor Dashboard. You must obtain the Secret Key and Publishable Key from Stripe and paste it into the Stripe App configuration form. Webhooks to receive notifications from Stripe will be configured automatically.

caution

Stripe App doesn't work with Restricted Keys.

Usage in Storefront or mobile apps

Stripe App can be used to integrate with Stripe APIs. By using a set of GraphQL mutations, one can interact with Stripe to authorize, capture, refund, and cancel payments.

Stripe Payment Element

Getting payment gateways

The first step is to fetch the Checkout object including availablePaymentGateways field. The availablePaymentGateways field contains a list of payment gateways available for given checkout. The Stripe App should be one of the payment gateways available in the list. Its id is app.saleor.stripe - defined in app's manifest.

query {
checkout(id: "Q2hlY2tvdXQ6YWY3MDJkMGQtMzM0NC00NjMxLTlkNmEtMDk4Yzk1ODhlNmMy") {
availablePaymentGateways {
id
name
}
}
}

The response:

{
"data": {
"checkout": {
"availablePaymentGateways": [
{
"id": "app.saleor.stripe",
"name": "Stripe"
}
]
}
}
}
note

availablePaymentGateways may contain other Payment Apps as well as legacy plugins configured in the Dashboard. You should ignore the ones that you don't want to use for a specific checkout.

Paying with Stripe Payment Element

To initialize the Stripe Payment Element, one needs to create a transaction in Saleor by calling the transactionInitialize mutation.

mutation StripeTransactionInitialize($data: JSON!) {
transactionInitialize(
id: "Q2hlY2tvdXQ6YWY3MDJkMGQtMzM0NC00NjMxLTlkNmEtMDk4Yzk1ODhlNmMy"
amount: 54.24
paymentGateway: { id: "app.saleor.stripe", data: $data }
) {
transactionEvent {
pspReference
amount {
amount
currency
}
type
}
data
errors {
field
message
code
}
}
}
Expand ▼

Where $data is an object passed to Stripe API to create a Payment Intent, for example:

{
"automatic_payment_methods": {
"enabled": true
}
}

The mutation returns the TransactionInitialize response:

{
"data": {
"transactionInitialize": {
"transactionEvent": {
"pspReference": "XXXX9XXXXXXXXX99",
"amount": {
"amount": 54.24,
"currency": "EUR"
},
"type": "CHARGE_REQUESTED"
},
"data": {
"paymentIntent": {
"client_secret": "…"
},
"publishableKey": "…"
},
"errors": []
}
}
}

client_secret and publishableKey can be used to initialize the Stripe Payment Element.

You can find a working example in this repository: saleor/example-nextjs-stripe

Modifying the payment intent

You can use the transactionProcess mutation to modify the payment intent. For example:

mutation StripeTransactionProcess($data: JSON!) {
transactionProcess(
id: "Q2hlY2tvdXQ6YWY3MDJkMGQtMzM0NC00NjMxLTlkNmEtMDk4Yzk1ODhlNmMy"
data: $data
) {
transactionEvent {
pspReference
amount {
amount
currency
}
type
}
data
errors {
field
message
code
}
}
}
Expand ▼

Where $data is an object passed to Stripe API to edit a Payment Intent, for example:

{
"automatic_payment_methods": {
"enabled": true
}
}

Retrieving publishable key

In some cases, you might want to retrieve just the publishable key without creating any transactions in Saleor. This is particularly useful on a payment summary page where you want to display the details of Stripe Payment Intent. To do so, paymentGatewayInitialize mutation can be used:

mutation PaymentGatewayInitialize($checkoutId: ID!) {
paymentGatewayInitialize(
id: $checkoutId
amount: 0
paymentGateways: [{ id: "app.saleor.stripe" }]
) {
gatewayConfigs {
id
data
errors {
field
message
code
}
}
errors {
field
message
code
}
}
}
Expand ▼

The response:

{
"data": {
"paymentGatewayInitialize": {
"gatewayConfigs": [
{
"id": "app.saleor.stripe",
"data": {
"publishableKey": "pk_test_…"
},
"errors": []
}
],
"errors": []
}
}
}

Development

To run the Stripe App locally:

  1. Go to the app directory.
  2. Copy the .env.example file to .env.The .env should contain the following variables:
info

Stripe App is a Next.js application. If you want to learn more about setting environment variables in Next.js, head over to the documentation.

SECRET_KEY (required)

A randomly generated key that encrypts metadata stored in Saleor. At least eight characters long.

APL (optional)

Name of the chosen implementation of the Authentication Persistence Layer.

When no value is provided, FileAPL is used by default. See saleor-app.ts in the app directory to see supported APLs.

APP_DEBUG (optional)

The logging level for the app. The possible values are: trace, debug, info, warn, error, fatal, and silent. The default value is info which means that some information will be logged into the console.

You can read more about our logger in its documentation.

Running app in development mode

To run the app in development mode, run the following command:

pnpm i
pnpm dev
note

pnpm 8.0.0 or higher is required to run the app.

The app will be available at http://localhost:3000.

info

To test Stripe Webhooks, you need to expose your local server to the internet (tunnel). You can use Saleor CLI or Stripe CLI to do that. See this guide for more details.

Running tests

To run tests, one needs to provide additional environment variables. Copy the .env.test file to .env.test.local.The .env.test.local should contain the following variables:

env variable namerequired?descriptionexample
