    Try the Stripe API in seconds. Create your first customer, charge, and more by following the steps below.

    As a first step, credit card information is sent directly to Stripe, ensuring sensitive data never hits your servers. The code below creates a token with Stripe Elements for the test card 4242 4242 4242 4242.

    You can immediately perform a one-time charge, but by storing it on a customer, the payment method can be used for repeat charges. Let's create the customer using your token.

    Now that you have a customer and securely stored their credit card information, you can easily charge this customer anytime. Try creating a charge for .

    If your business uses subscriptions, Stripe makes it simple to bill customers on a recurring basis. Let's start by creating a plan named for .

    You can now easily link your customer to this new plan to create a subscription. Stripe will handle the recurring billing automatically for you.

    That's it! You've created your first customer, your first charge, as well as your first plan and subscription. Happy coding!

    var card = elements.create('card');
    var promise = stripe.createToken(card);
    promise.then(function(result) {
      // result.token is the card token.
