Setting up Stripe account

Before understanding Stripe subscriptions we will first need to register for a Stripe account. If we already have a verified account, we can skip this chapter.

First, we will need to sign up in the Stripe dashboard. After registering successfully, make sure you are in the Test mode as there are no fees of any kind— from us, from Stripe, from anybody. Now, we will edit our account name. Click on the New Business dropdown and then click on the Edit button.

Account Dropdown

Enter the account name and save it successfully. Now, get your API keys by clicking the Developers tab in the top right corner and checking in the API keys section. We will use Test API Keys and then we will click on the Reveal test key button.

API Keys

Copy these API keys and save them for later use.
