About this template

This app creates a Stripe payment link object using its API, allowing users to generate payment links for specific products or services. You must provide Stripe API keys and price details via environment variables for security.

Introduction to the Create Payment Link with Stripe API Template

Welcome to the Create Payment Link with Stripe API Template! This template is designed to help you quickly and securely generate payment links for your products or services using Stripe's powerful API. With this template, you can create a payment link object that can be shared with your customers, allowing them to make payments with ease.

Before we dive into the steps to use this template, it's important to note that you will need to have your Stripe API key and price ID ready, as these are essential for the template to function properly. These credentials will be securely stored as environment secrets within the Lazy platform.

Click Start with this Template

To begin using this template, simply click on the "Start with this Template" button. This will set up the template in the Lazy Builder interface, pre-populating the code for you.

Initial Setup: Adding Environment Secrets

For the template to work, you need to set up two environment secrets within the Lazy Builder:

  • STRIPE_API_KEY: Your Stripe secret API key.
  • STRIPE_PRICE_ID: The price ID for the product or service you want to create a payment link for.

To obtain these values, follow these steps:

  • Log in to your Stripe dashboard.
  • Navigate to the Developers section and click on API keys.
  • Copy your secret API key and paste it as the value for the STRIPE_API_KEY environment secret in the Lazy Builder.
  • To get the STRIPE_PRICE_ID, go to the Products section in Stripe, select the product you want to sell, and copy the price ID.
  • Paste this price ID as the value for the STRIPE_PRICE_ID environment secret in the Lazy Builder.

Remember to keep these credentials secure and never share them publicly.

Test: Pressing the Test Button

Once you have set up the environment secrets, you can test the template by pressing the "Test" button. This will deploy the app and launch the Lazy CLI. There is no need for user input at this stage, as the necessary information is provided through the environment secrets.

Using the App

After testing the template, if the payment link is successfully created, the Lazy CLI will display the URL for the payment link. You can share this link with your customers to allow them to make payments. If there is an error, the CLI will print out an error message, which you can use to troubleshoot the issue.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this payment link into your website or service, you can simply copy the URL provided by the Lazy CLI and add it as a hyperlink or button on your site. For example:


<a href="PASTE_YOUR_PAYMENT_LINK_HERE" target="_blank">Pay Now</a>

Replace "PASTE_YOUR_PAYMENT_LINK_HERE" with the actual payment link URL.

By following these steps, you can easily create and integrate Stripe payment links into your service using the Lazy platform. This will streamline the payment process for your customers and help you manage transactions securely and efficiently.

Stripe API Testing

This application utilizes Flask for the backend and JavaScript with Stripe API for the frontend. It allows users to test various Stripe functionalities such as adding a card to a customer, creating a charge, and retrieving customer details. The backend interacts with the Stripe API using the stripe library, while the frontend provides a simple form for users to input their Stripe API secret and an optional customer ID. Upon submitting the form, the frontend sends a POST request to the backend, which then executes the specified tests and returns the results to be displayed on the page.
