Stripe: Killer Payment Processing + ??? = Profit

You've already got the unstoppably amazing product, you just need to get out there and sell it! Knowing that almost every payment-processor ever is a huge pain you choose Stripe (you're so wise).

In this tutorial, we'll build a full checkout system for our awesome product and learn all about:

  • Handling the Stripe.js checkout & token process
  • Associating cards and creating Charge objects
  • Creating Stripe customers and connecting them with users
  • Building an embedded and a completely customer checkout form
  • Formatting your card & expiration fields like a pro
  • Being super graceful when things go wrong
  • Organizing everything with Stripe invoices

In Part 2, we'll handle subscriptions, webhooks, discount and more!

    Yes and no :). Our courses mostly fall into 3 different categories

    1) Courses about Symfony where we're teaching Symfony (e.g. anything on http://knpuniversity.com/track...
    2) Courses about some topic (REST, Stripe, Behat). We *often* use Symfony in these, but we try to keep the information as "agnostic" of Symfony as possible, trying to use only the more basic features of Symfony so that someone who doesn't know Symfony well can learn the topic.
    3) Beginner courses that are not built on any framework (e.g. http://knpuniversity.com/track... and http://knpuniversity.com/track....

    So, the trickiest ones are category (2) - it's not very realistic to build real application without a framework... but you also don't want the framework to be a barrier to entry. So, we do our best :).

    Cheers!

    So as I'm understanding right now, every course in this site is built on top of symfony framework? I'm telling you this because in the course description you don't mention anything about symfony, so I'm deducting that It's because of every course here is built with symfony

  • 2016-10-25 weaverryan

    Hey Rodolfo!

    Absolutely :). I don't think I used any features that are new in Symfony 3.1 for this tutorial, so everything should work fine. The "newest" feature I use is service autowiring... which is optional anyways (there are a few minor things with autowiring that were improved in 3.1, so it's possible that autowiring may not work in some cases... but it probably will). The biggest difference will be to translate the different directory structure from Symfony3 to Symfony2 - most importantly that bin/console in Symfony3 is app/console in Symfony2, var/cache is app/cache and a few other minor things.

    So yea, get to it! If you have questions along the way, just let us know.

    Cheers!

    I have a question here, can I combine the content of this course with symfony 2.8 in order to create payment method in my site?

  • 2016-10-13 weaverryan

    Unfortunately, it's not on the schedule for any time too soon :/. I'll add a vote for you on that topic - which always helps! But we've got some other tutorials we need to get out first before considering it. But definitely, Braintree makes it *somewhat* simple - it's similar to Stripe in many ways. If you do start implementing Braintree and have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Cheers!

    PayPal would be great! Any idea when this would be coming?

    Thanks Victor

  • 2016-09-05 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Shairyar,

    Yes, it will. Actually, the downloaded course code always contains 2 directories: the "start/" directory holds initial data at the start of course, so you could easily start coding from there when you start a course. The "finish/" directory holds the code of all chapters, i.e. the code after the latest chapter in the course.

    Cheers!

    If I download the source code of chapter 13 in this series, will that include the code of all above chapters as well?

    Life saviour.

    Could not stop watching it, great job. Can't wait for the next part. You made the integration seem so easy.

  • 2016-08-17 weaverryan

    Awesome - thanks for the nice message :). We're already recording part 2 about subscriptions. And it's big!

  • 2016-08-17 Isaak Ordoñez

    Hello, This was a great tutorial.

  • 2016-08-12 weaverryan

    Awesome! Yes, we use PayPal here on KnpU (in addition to Stripe) - via Braintree. It's not *quite* as smooth as using Stripe, but it makes life much easier than working with PayPal directly. We've had someone else already ask about PayPal as well, so it's on our list!

    Cheers!

    This tutorial was so handsome !

  • 2016-08-11 weaverryan

    And part 1 is all up! Next up: https://knpuniversity.com/scre... - video already recorded. It's big and fun :D

  • 2016-08-11 Garfieldmypet

    Thank you so much for the reply! Would be great to have PayPal integration too as many of us still use PayPal along with other payment processor such as PayPal Express Checkout. I do really appreciate you putting up the Stripe tutorial, as we are planning to add Stripe support soon.

    Hey Jovan,

    More videos should be in 1-2 weeks. Stay tuned! :)

  • 2016-08-09 Jovan Perović

    This was sweet. :) Can't wait for future videos :)

    Hey!

    We'll release this tutorial this week! And I've added PayPal to our list of ideas - we actually integrate with both Stripe and PayPal (via Braintree) here on KnpU - and it was a bit difficult to support both - and interesting topic!

    Cheers!

  • 2016-08-06 Garfieldmypet

    Hi, there,

    Will this tutorial be available soon? Can I also suggest that we have a tutorial on how to integrate with PayPal.
