stripe.net

If you would like to donate to help support stripe.net, my paypal address is jaymedavis@gmail.com. It's certainly not required, but I would appreciate it. :)

If you would like to submit a pull request.

First, thank you! It is a lot of work to learn someone else's codebase, so I appreciate it. Here are a few things that would help me out:

  • Do not submit pull requests for more than one fix. Keep them small and focused.
  • Please code review yourself. There are a lot of pull requests with typos and mistakes. Don't worry, we all do it. But a code review of yourself will help. :)
  • Please review the diff in GitHub that I will see before I merge your pull requests. If it's hard for you to tell what the differences are, it's going to be hard for me too.

Quick Start

It is recommended that you install Stripe.net via NuGet. If you wish to build it yourself via build.cmd, you will need ruby installed along with the gems albacore and zip. You could also just build the assembly in Visual Studio by opening the solution and compiling.

Add a reference to Stripe.net.dll.

Next you will need to provide Stripe.net with your api key. There are 4 ways to do this:

a) Add an AppSetting with your api key to your config (this is the easiest way and will work throughout the app on every request)

<appSettings>
...
    <add key="StripeApiKey" value="[your api key here]" />
...
</appSettings>

b) In your application initialization, call this method (this is a programmatic way, but you only have to do it once during startup)

StripeConfiguration.SetApiKey("[your api key here]");

c) In any of the service constructors, you can optionally pass the api key (will be assigned that apikey for the life of the service instance).

var planService = new StripePlanService("[your api key here]");

d) In any of the service calls, you can pass a StripeRequestOptions object with the apikey specified.

var planService = new StripePlanService();
planService.Get(*planId*, new StripeRequestOptions() { ApiKey = "[your api key here]" });

Stripe API Version

Stripe.net forces a version of the Stripe API for which it was designed. You can find out the latest version supported by viewing StripeConfiguration.cs under the Infrastructure folder.

Examples

Plans

Creating a plan

If your site has multiple offerings, plans are perfect. You can create as many plans as you want and then just assign customers to those plans later on.

var myPlan = new StripePlanCreateOptions();
myPlan.Amount = 1000;           // all amounts on Stripe are in cents, pence, etc
myPlan.Currency = "usd";        // "usd" only supported right now
myPlan.Interval = "month";      // "month" or "year"
myPlan.IntervalCount = 1;       // optional
myPlan.Name = "Bronze";
myPlan.TrialPeriodDays = 30;    // amount of time that will lapse before the customer is billed

var planService = new StripePlanService();
StripePlan response = planService.Create(myPlan);

The returned StripePlan entity above will have a unique Id. You will want to persist this for later. When you create a customer you will be able to assign them to a plan id (or not)

Updating a plan

var myPlan = new StripePlanUpdateOptions();

myPlan.Name = "NEW Plan YO!";

var planService = new StripePlanService();
StripePlan response = planService.Update(*planId*, myPlan);

Retrieving a plan

var planService = new StripePlanService();
StripePlan response = planService.Get(*planId*);

Deleting a plan

var planService = new StripePlanService();
planService.Delete(*planId*);

List all plans

var planService = new StripePlanService();
IEnumerable<StripePlan> response = planService.List(); // optional StripeListOptions

StripeListOptions for paging

Coupons (queue-pons not coo-pons)

Creating a coupon

var myCoupon = new StripeCouponCreateOptions();
myCoupon.Id = "HOLIDAY10OFF";
myCoupon.PercentOff = "10";
myCoupon.Duration = "repeating";    // "forever", "once", or "repeating"
myCoupon.DurationInMonths = 3;      // valid when "repeating" only

// set these if you want to
myCoupon.MaxRedemptions = 100;
myCoupon.RedeemBy = '12/31/2012';

var couponService = new StripeCouponService();
StripeCoupon response = couponService.Create(myCoupon);

Retrieving a coupon

var couponService = new StripeCouponService();
StripeCoupon response = couponService.Get(*couponId*);

Deleting a coupon

var couponService = new StripeCouponService();
couponService.Delete(*couponId*);

List all coupons

var couponService = new StripeCouponService();
IEnumerable<StripeCoupon> response = couponService.List();  // optional StripeListOptions

StripeListOptions for paging

Tokens

Creating a token

A token can be used anywhere on Stripe where you would normally pass a card. Once it's created, it can be used on a customer or a charge, but only used once.

var myToken = new StripeTokenCreateOptions();

// if you need this...
myToken.Card = new StripeCreditCardOptions()
{
    // set these properties if passing full card details (do not
    // set these properties if you set TokenId)
    Number = "4242424242424242",
    ExpirationYear = "2022",
    ExpirationMonth = "10",
    AddressCountry = "US",                // optional
    AddressLine1 = "24 Beef Flank St",    // optional
    AddressLine2 = "Apt 24",              // optional
    AddressCity = "Biggie Smalls",        // optional
    AddressState = "NC",                  // optional
    AddressZip = "27617",                 // optional
    Name = "Joe Meatballs",               // optional
    Cvc = "1223"                          // optional
};

// set this property if using a customer (stripe connect only)
myToken.CustomerId = *customerId*;

var tokenService = new StripeTokenService();
StripeToken stripeToken = tokenService.Create(myToken);

Tokens are very useful if you don't want to store the customers credit card information on your servers (pci compliance).

Retrieving a token

var tokenService = new StripeTokenService();
StripeToken stripeToken = tokenService.Get(*tokenId*);

Customers

Creating a customer

When creating a customer, you can specify any plan they are on, any coupons that will apply, a credit card or token, and various meta data.

var myCustomer = new StripeCustomerCreateOptions();

// set these properties if it makes you happy
myCustomer.Email = "pork@email.com";
myCustomer.Description = "Johnny Tenderloin (pork@email.com)";

// setting up the card
myCustomer.Source = new StripeSourceOptions()
{
    // set this property if using a token
    TokenId = *tokenId*,

    // set these properties if passing full card details (do not
    // set these properties if you set TokenId)
    Number = "4242424242424242",
    ExpirationYear = "2022",
    ExpirationMonth = "10",
    AddressCountry = "US",                // optional
    AddressLine1 = "24 Beef Flank St",    // optional
    AddressLine2 = "Apt 24",              // optional
    AddressCity = "Biggie Smalls",        // optional
    AddressState = "NC",                  // optional
    AddressZip = "27617",                 // optional
    Name = "Joe Meatballs",               // optional
    Cvc = "1223"                          // optional
}

myCustomer.PlanId = *planId*;                          // only if you have a plan
myCustomer.TaxPercent = 20;                            // only if you are passing a plan, this tax percent will be added to the price.
myCustomer.Coupon = *couponId*;                        // only if you have a coupon
myCustomer.TrialEnd = DateTime.UtcNow.AddMonths(1);    // when the customers trial ends (overrides the plan if applicable)
myCustomer.Quantity = 1;                               // optional, defaults to 1

var customerService = new StripeCustomerService();
StripeCustomer stripeCustomer = customerService.Create(myCustomer);

Don't let this be intimidating - all of these fields are optional. You could just create a customer with an email if you wanted.

Updating a customer

var myCustomer = new StripeCustomerUpdateOptions();

// set these properties if it makes you happy
myCustomer.Email = "pork@email.com";
myCustomer.Description = "Johnny Tenderloin (pork@email.com)";

{
    // set this property if using a token
    TokenId = *tokenId*,

    // set these properties if passing full card details (do not
    // set these properties if you set TokenId)
    Number = "4242424242424242",
    ExpirationYear = "2022",
    ExpirationMonth = "10",
    AddressCountry = "US",                // optional
    AddressLine1 = "24 Beef Flank St",    // optional
    AddressLine2 = "Apt 24",              // optional
    AddressCity = "Biggie Smalls",        // optional
    AddressState = "NC",                  // optional
    AddressZip = "27617",                 // optional
    Name = "Joe Meatballs",               // optional
    Cvc = "1223"                          // optional
}

// this will set the default card to use for this customer

var transferService = new StripeTransferService();
StripeTransfer stripeTransfer = transferService.Cancel(*transferId*);

List all transfers

var transferService = new StripeTransferService();
IEnumerable<StripeTransfer> response = transferService.List(); // optional StripeTransferListOptions

StripeTransferListOptions supports a RecipientId, Status ('pending', 'paid' or 'failed'), StripeListOptions for paging, and a StripeDateFilter for date filtering (on both the created and date fields)

Application Fees

If you do not specify an amount, the entire application fee is refunded.

Retrieving an application fee

var feeService = new StripeApplicationFeeService();
StripeApplicationFee stripeApplicationFee = feeService.Get(*applicationFeeId*);

Refunding an application fee

var feeService = new StripeApplicationFeeService();
StripeApplicationFee stripeApplicationFee = feeService.Refund(*applicationFeeId*, *amount*);

StripeListOptions (paging)

All Stripe List methods support paging, using limit, starting_after and ending_before properties. If you do not specify any options, limit will default to 10. Some examples of retrieving paged data from the StripeChargeService:

var chargeService = new StripeChargeService();

// get the first five results
IEnumerable<StripeCharge> firstPage = chargeService.List(new StripeChargeListOptions {
Limit = 5
});

// get the next five results
IEnumerable<StripeCharge> nextPage = chargeService.List(new StripeChargeListOptions {
Limit = 5,
StartingAfter = firstPage.Last().Id
});

// get the previous five results again
IEnumerable<StripeCharge> previousPage = chargeService.List(new StripeChargeListOptions {
    Limit = 5,
    EndingBefore = nextPage.First().Id
});

StripeDateFilter (date filtering)

Many of the List methods support parameters to filter by date. To use this, use the StripeDateFilter class. You can combine the filters to make complex queries. Some examples are:

var chargeService = new StripeChargeService();

var chargesToday = chargeService.List(new StripeChargeListOptions {
    Created = new StripeDateFilter { GreaterThanOrEqual = DateTime.UtcNow.Date }
});

var chargesYesterday = chargeService.List(new StripeChargeListOptions {
    Created = new StripeDateFilter {
        GreaterThanOrEqual = DateTime.Now.AddDays(-1).Date,
        LessThan = DateTime.Now.Date
    }
});

Expandable Properties

Many of the services support expandable properties. Setting an expandable property to true means you want the entire object back instead of just the id.

For example:

var chargeService = new StripeChargeService();
chargeService.ExpandBalanceTransaction = true;
chargeService.ExpandCustomer = true;
chargeService.ExpandInvoice = true;

StripeCharge stripeCharge = chargeService.Get(*chargeId*);

When the StripeCharge is returned, the Customer, BalanceTransaction, and Invoice properties will be hydrated objects.

Events

Stripe sends Events (via webhooks) whenever an associated action occurs. The list of events Stripe sends is documented here: https://stripe.com/docs/api#event_types

Receiving events from Stripe

1) In your application, create a handler that looks something like the below:

namespace TheBestApplicationEverCreated
{
    public class StripeHandler : IHttpHandler
    {
        public bool IsReusable
        {
            get { return true; }
        }

        public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
        {
            var json = new StreamReader(context.Request.InputStream).ReadToEnd();

            var stripeEvent = StripeEventUtility.ParseEvent(json);

            switch (stripeEvent.Type)
            {
                case StripeEvents.ChargeRefunded:  // all of the types available are listed in StripeEvents
                    var stripeCharge = Stripe.Mapper<StripeCharge>.MapFromJson(stripeEvent.Data.Object.ToString());
                    break;
            }
        }
    }
}

2) Create a StripeHandler.ashx in the root of your website (or wherever) that looks like this:

<%@ WebHandler Language="C#" Class="StripeHandler" CodeBehind="StripeHandler.cs" %>

3) Login to Stripe and go to Account Settings, webhooks - from here, you can setup the url that points to your StripeHandler.ashx for testing.

Whenever an Event is received, StripeEventUtility.ParseEvent(json) will convert the response into a StripeEvent object.

Retrieving an event

If you have the id and you want to retrieve the event

var eventService = new StripeEventService();
StripeEvent response = eventService.Get(*eventId*)

List all events

You can list events in the same way everything else works in Stripe.net.

var eventService = new StripeEventService();
IEnumerable<StripeEvent> response = eventService.List(); // optional StripeEventListOptions

StripeEventListOptions supports a type, StripeListOptions for paging, and a StripeDateFilter for date filtering

Stripe Connect

The Stripe Connect documentation can be a little intimidating, so I am going to try to break it down a little. Stripe Connect gives you the ability to accept money on behalf of other accounts, and access or modify connected accounts depending on permissions.

1) The first thing you need to do is register your platform with Stripe Connect. Stripe.net at this time only supports Standalone Accounts, which is very useful because it supports every country Stripe supports. Managed Accounts are a valuable service as well, but they are not available in Stripe.net yet.

2) The next thing to do, is have another party connect to your site. To do this, put a link on your site which will start the authorization process, or you can use a Stripe Connect Button. Your link will need to contain some querystring paramaters:

response_type: code
client_id:     *your client id from the stripe connect dashboard*
scope:         read_only (default), or read_write (lets you modify their data as well) // this is optional and defaults to read_only
redirect_uri:  this is optional, and will return the user to this page when the connection is complete
other options are available and you can learn more about them with the [Connect OAuth Reference](https://stripe.com/docs/connect/reference)

3) When the user clicks the link on your site, they will be prompted to authorize the connection. At this point, they can create a new Stripe account or setup the connection with an existing account.

Your link will look something like this:

https://connect.stripe.com/oauth/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=*your_client_id_from_the_stripe_connect_dashboard&scope=read_write

4) The link above will return a code when the setup is complete (and also return back to your redirect_uri if specified). With this code, you can make a request to Stripe to get the StripeUserId for accessing their account.

In Stripe.net, you can accomplish this with the following code:

var stripeOAuthTokenService = new StripeOAuthTokenService();
var stripeOAuthTokeCreateOptions = new StripeOAuthTokenCreateOptions()
{
    ClientSecret = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["StripeApiKey"],
    Code = *the code returned from above*,
    GrantType = "authorization_code"
};

StripeOAuthToken stripeOAuthToken = stripeOAuthTokenService.Create(_stripeOAuthTokeCreateOptions);

5) You're done! Whenever you need to access the connected account, you simply need the StripeUserId from the StripeOAuthToken to be passed as part of the StripeRequestOptions which all service calls now support as an optional parameter.

For example, to get the plans on the connected account, you could run the following code:

var planService = new StripePlanService();
StripePlan response = planService.List(null /* StripeListOptions */, new StripeRequestOptions() { StripeConnectAccountId = *the StripeUserId on the StripeOAuthToken above* });

Depending on if your permissions are read_write or read_only, you can do anything on the connected account you can do on your own account just by passing the StripeUserId as part of StripeRequestOptions.

StripeRequestOptions

All of the service methods accept an optional StripeRequestOptions object. This is used if you need an Idempotency Key, if you are using Stripe Connect, or if you want to pass the ApiKey on each method.

var requestOptions = new StripeRequestOptions();
requestOptions.ApiKey = *optional*;              // this is not required unless you choose to pass the apikey on every service call
requestOptions.IdempotencyKey = "some string";   // this is for Idempotent Requests - https://stripe.com/docs/api?lang=curl#idempotent_requests
requestOptions.StripeConnectAccountId = "acct_*" // if you are using Stripe Connect and want to issue a request on the connected account

Errors

Any errors that occur on any of the services will throw a StripeException with the message returned from Stripe. It is a good idea to run your service calls in a try and catch StripeException.

The StripeException contains and HttpStatusCode and a StripeError entity. The StripeError entity contains the type, message, code and param. For more infomation, review the Errors section of stripe here: https://stripe.com/docs/api#errors

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
