Stripe Support

Just wondering if you have plans to support stripe?

    FoxyCart supports Stripe in version 0.7.2
  • Perfect! Thanks.
  • Do all the details of the customer including card info get saved on Stripe's end? That might be a bit of a silly question, sorry if that's the case.

    Here are the details we send to Stripe:
    			'card' => array(
    			'description' (we put the email here)
  • Hmm. It seems like all the required information is sent over but I wonder if one logs into their stripe account if that user data is saved there. Appreciate it Luke, I'm hoping someone using Stripe can chime in.
  • Hey, I'm just learning a detail as i get started with Stripe: there's the most common, default behavior for integrating is to just create a charge. But what I'm needing is to create a customer object that is attached to that charge, yielding a customer ID that I can go back to later for future charges.

    Is the FoxyCart integration capable of sending a 'create customer object' kind of request to Stripe, too?

    I was looking at this too. I don't think it is by default, but I wonder if FoxyCart could adjust their integration so that Stripe could use FoxyCart's authorization feature to do exactly that.

    Whaddya guys think?

    We'll take a look, though that would be a unique feature only this gateway has. Could there be a situation where a create customer would create a duplicate customer? Would we have to somehow check if a customer exists, prior to creating a new one? Is there any downside to adding this feature that could mess up how someone manages their Stripe transactions? Would we need to make this a feature that can be turned on or off?

    This looks pretty straight-forward:

    If "authorize" is checked on for Stripe, you'd just create the customer and pass back "Stripe Customer ID: xxxxxxxxx" for the resource response. Then Patrick could grab that information later and charge as he wants to. I don't see any issues with creating multiple customers since you are just going to use the card number once anyway.
