About this template

This app uses the Stripe API to create payouts for Connect Stripe Accouts and allows users to modify the payout schedule. It includes a Flask web service with an endpoint for this purpose. The backend makes API calls to create a transfer of funds and update the payout schedule using the Stripe API and the submitted form data.

Introduction to the Stripe Transfer and Payout Schedule Template

Welcome to the Stripe Transfer and Payout Schedule Template! This template is designed to help you integrate Stripe's payout functionality into your own Connect accounts. With this template, you can create transfers to your connected accounts and modify their payout schedules directly from a simple web interface. This is perfect for builders looking to manage financial transactions within their platform.

Getting Started

To begin using this template, click on "Start with this Template" on the Lazy platform. This will set up the template in your Lazy Builder interface, pre-populating the code so you can customize it according to your needs without any additional code copying or pasting.

Initial Setup: Adding Environment Secrets

Before you can test and use the app, you need to set up an environment secret for the Stripe API key:

  1. Log in to your Stripe account and navigate to the API section to find your secret API key.
  2. Go to the Environment Secrets tab within the Lazy Builder.
  3. Create a new secret with the key STRIPE_API_KEY and paste your Stripe secret API key as the value.

This key is crucial for the app to authenticate with Stripe and perform transactions on your behalf.

Test: Pressing the Test Button

Once you have set up your environment secret, press the "Test" button on the Lazy platform. This will deploy your app and launch the Lazy CLI. If the template requires any user input, you will be prompted to provide it through the CLI.

Entering Input

If the template requires user input, such as the amount, currency, destination account ID, and payout schedule details, you will be prompted to enter this information after pressing the "Test" button. Follow the prompts in the Lazy CLI to input the necessary data.

Using the App

After deployment, Lazy will provide you with a dedicated server link to access the web interface of your app. Here's how to use the interface:

  1. Open the provided server link in your web browser.
  2. To create a transfer, fill in the "Amount in cents," "Currency," and "Destination" fields in the transfer form, and click "Submit Transfer."
  3. To modify a payout schedule, fill in the "Account ID," choose the "Interval," and optionally provide "Day of week" or "Day of month" in the payout schedule form, then click "Update Payout Schedule."

The web interface will display the results of your actions, whether successful or if there were any errors.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this functionality into another service or frontend, you may need to use the API endpoints provided by the app. For example, you can make POST requests to /create_transfer and /modify_payout_schedule with the appropriate JSON payload to perform actions programmatically.

Here's a sample request for creating a transfer:

POST /create_transfer
Content-Type: application/json

    "amount": 1000,
    "currency": "usd",
    "destination": "acct_1234"

And a sample response might look like this:

    "id": "tr_1Example",
    "object": "transfer",
    "amount": 1000,
    // ... other transfer details

Remember to replace the placeholder values with actual data corresponding to your Stripe account and connected accounts.

By following these steps, you can easily set up and use the Stripe Transfer and Payout Schedule Template on the Lazy platform to manage financial transactions for your Connect accounts.
