A guide on how to integrate powerful Stripe API actions into your Recipes


Stripe is an online payment processing platform that allows businesses to send and receive payments over the internet. Stripe securely processes more than $200 Billion in payments every year.

Step 1: Find your Stripe Secret API Key

You can find your Stripe secret API key by heading to your Stripe account and visiting the API Keys page. Make sure you're pulling your secret key and not your publishable key. If you don't already have an existing secret key, you'll need to create one first.

Step 2: Connect your Stripe account to Buildable

To add Stripe as a step in your Recipe, click the "+" button in the Recipe editor canvas and choose Stripe from the step selector drawer. Click the dropdown in the "Select your account" section and click the "Add new" option. In the popup that appears, add a name for the account to easily distinguish it in future steps and the Stripe API Secret key. Click the Connect button to complete the connection.

Step 3: Select your Stripe action

Buildable's native Stripe integration makes accessing Stripe's powerful payments APIs seamless and lightning fast. The integration gives developers instant access to the following actions:

  • Create charge

  • Create customer

  • Update customer

  • Create product

  • Create payment method

  • Create subscription

  • Cancel subscription

  • Create refund

  • Get refund

The "Amount" and "Currency" parameters are required in the key-value table for Charges. All others are optional
