Checkout Migration Guide

    Learn how to migrate from the legacy version of Checkout to the new version.

    The legacy version of Checkout presented customers with a modal dialog that collected card information, and returned a token or a source to your website.

    In contrast, the new version of Checkout is a smart payment page hosted by Stripe that creates payments or subscriptions. It supports Apple Pay and Dynamic 3D Secure, with more features to come.

    There are two ways to integrate the new version of Checkout: client and server. The client integration is quick to get started with and is suitable for simpler product catalogs. The server integration provides maximum flexibility, with support for dynamic line items, Connect, re-using existing Customers, and advanced subscription features.

    To migrate from the legacy version to the new version, follow the guide that most closely represents your business model. Each guide will recommend an integration path along with example code.

    • Simple product catalog with fixed pricing
      For example, you are selling a few products with pre-determined prices.

    • Simple subscriptions
      For example, you are a SaaS provider with a monthly subscription plan.

    • Dynamic product catalog and pricing
      For example, you have a large product catalog or require support for dynamically generated line items (such as donations or taxes).

    • Dynamic subscriptions
      For example, you are a SaaS provider billing users and need support for advanced features.

    • Connect platforms and marketplaces
      For example, you are operating a marketplace connecting service providers with customers.

    • Saving payment methods for future use (Unsupported)
      If you were using the legacy version of Checkout to save a payment method for later use without also charging the customer at the same time, use Stripe Elements instead. The new version of Checkout does not yet support collecting payment method information outside of a transaction, although support is planned.

    As you follow the relevant migration guide, you can also reference the conversion table for a mapping of specific parameters and configuration options between the two versions of Checkout.

    Simple product catalog with fixed pricing

    If you are selling a few products with fixed pricing (such as a few t-shirts or e-books), consider using the new version of Checkout’s client integration. Follow the instructions in the quickstart to create a product in the Dashboard and generate a code snippet to add to your website.

    You may have used the legacy version of Checkout to create a token or source on the client, and passed it to your server to create a charge. The new version of Checkout, however, automatically creates the payment for you, and no server integration is required.

    Dynamic product catalog and pricing

    If you are selling products where the amount or line items are determined dynamically (say, with a large product catalog or for donations), consider using the new version of Checkout’s server integration. Follow the instructions in the quickstart to integrate the Checkout Sessions API in your application.

    You may have used the legacy version of Checkout to create a token or source on the client, and passed it to your server to create a charge. The new version of Checkout’s server integration, however, reverses this flow. You first create a Session on your server, pass its ID to your client, redirect your customer to Checkout, who then gets redirected back to your application upon success.

    Before

    With the legacy version of Checkout, you would display the dynamic amount and description and collect card information from your customer.

    <form action="/purchase" method="POST">
      <script
        src="https://checkout.stripe.com/checkout.js"
        class="stripe-button"
        data-key="pk_test_TYooMQauvdEDq54NiTphI7jx"
        data-name="Custom t-shirt"
        data-description="Your custom designed t-shirt"
        data-amount="{{ORDER_AMOUNT}}"
        data-currency="usd">
      </script>
    </form>

    Next, you would send the resulting token or source to your server and charge it.

    curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/customers \
      -u sk_test_4eC39HqLyjWDarjtT1zdp7dc: \
      -d email="customer@example.com" \

    customer = Stripe::Customer.create(
      email: 'customer@example.com',
      source: data['stripeToken'],
    )
    
    charge = Stripe::Charge.create(
      customer: customer.id,
      description: 'Custom t-shirt',

    charge = stripe.Charge.create(
      customer=customer.id,

    $customer = \Stripe\Customer::create([

    $charge = \Stripe\Charge::create([

    ]);
    Map<String, Object> customerParams = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    customerParams.put("email", "customer@example.com");
    customerParams.put("source", request.stripeToken);
    Customer customer = Customer.create(customerParams);
    
    Map<String, Object> chargeParams = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    chargeParams.put("customer", customer.id);
    chargeParams.put("description", "Custom t-shirt");

      const charge = await stripe.charges.create({
        customer: customer.id,
        description: 'Custom t-shirt',
        amount: order.amount,
        currency: 'usd',
      });
    })();
    customerParams := &stripe.CustomerParams{
        Email: stripe.String("customer@example.com"),
    }
    customerParams.SetSource(*request.stripeToken)
    customer, _ := customer.New(customerParams)
    
    chargeParams := &stripe.ChargeParams{
        Customer: stripe.String(customer.Id),
        Description: stripe.String("Custom t-shirt"),
        Amount: stripe.Int64(order.amount),
        Currency: stripe.String(string(stripe.CurrencyUSD)),
    }
    charge, _ := charge.New(chargeParams)
    var customerOptions = new CustomerCreateOptions {
        Email = "customer@example.com",
        Source = request.stripeToken,
    };
    var customerService = new CustomerService();
    Customer customer = customerService.Create(customerOptions);
    
    var chargeOptions = new ChargeCreateOptions {
        CustomerId = customer.id,
        Description = "Custom t-shirt",
        Amount = order.amount,
        Currency = "usd",
    };
    var chargeService = new ChargeService();
    Charge charge = chargeService.Create(chargeOptions);

    After

    With the new version of Checkout, first create a Checkout Session on your server.

    curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/checkout/sessions \
      -u sk_test_4eC39HqLyjWDarjtT1zdp7dc: \

      -d line_items[][amount]="{{ORDER_AMOUNT}}" \
      -d line_items[][currency]=usd \
      -d line_items[][quantity]=1 \
      -d success_url="https://example.com/success" \
      -d cancel_url="https://example.com/cancel"
    
    session = Stripe::Checkout::Session.create(
      payment_method_types: ['card'],
      line_items: [{
        name: 'Custom t-shirt',
        description: 'Your custom designed t-shirt',
        amount: order.amount,
        currency: 'usd',

      // If `redirectToCheckout` fails due to a browser or network
      // error, display the localized error message to your customer
      // using `result.error.message`.
    });

    The customer will be redirected to the success_url once they complete payment.

    If you need to fulfill purchased goods after the payment, refer to Checkout Purchase Fulfllment.

    Dynamic subscriptions

    If you are providing subscription services that are dynamically determined or require support for other advanced features, consider using the new version of Checkout’s server integration. Follow the instructions in the quickstart to integrate the Checkout Sessions API in your application.

    You may have used the legacy version of Checkout to create a token or source on the client, and passed it to your server to create a customer and subscription. The new version of Checkout’s server integration, however, reverses this flow. You first create a Session on your server, pass its ID to your client, redirect your customer to Checkout, who then gets redirected back to your application upon success.

    Before

    With the legacy version of Checkout, you would display the subscription information and collect card information from your customer.

    <form action="/subscribe" method="POST">
      <script
        src="https://checkout.stripe.com/checkout.js"
        class="stripe-button"
        data-key="pk_test_TYooMQauvdEDq54NiTphI7jx"
        data-name="Gold Tier"
        data-description="Monthly subscription with 30 days trial"
        data-amount="2000"
        data-label="Subscribe">
      </script>
    </form>

    Next, you would send the resulting token or source to your server to create a customer and a subscription.

    curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/customers \
      -u sk_test_4eC39HqLyjWDarjtT1zdp7dc: \

    ]);
    Map<String, Object> customerParams = new HashMap<String, Object>();
    customerParams.put("email", "customer@example.com");

      // error, display the localized error message to your customer
      // using `result.error.message`.
    });

    The customer will be redirected to the success_url once the customer and subscription have been created.

    If you need to fulfill purchased services after the payment, refer to Checkout Purchase Fulfillment.

    Connect platforms and marketplaces

    If you are operating a Connect platform or marketplace and create payments involving connected accounts, consider using the new version of Checkout’s server integration. Follow the instructions in the Connect guide to migrate your integration.

    The following example demonstrates using the Checkout Sessions API to process a direct charge. Follow the Connect guide for details on how to create destination charges.

    Before

    With the legacy version of Checkout, you would collect card information from your customer on the client.

    <form action="/purchase" method="POST">

        data-description="10 cucumbers from Roger's Farm"
        data-amount="2000">
      </script>
    </form>

    Next, you would send the resulting token or source to your server and charge it on behalf of the connected account.

    curl https://api.stripe.com/v1/charges \

    Next, pass the Session ID to your client and redirect your customer to Checkout to complete payment. Make sure to provide the connected account’s ID when initializing Stripe.js.

    // Initialize Stripe.js with the same connected account ID used when creating
    // the Checkout Session.
    var stripe = Stripe('pk_test_TYooMQauvdEDq54NiTphI7jx', {
      stripeAccount: '{{CONNECTED_STRIPE_ACCOUNT_ID}}'
    });
    
    stripe.redirectToCheckout({
      // Make the id field from the Checkout Session creation API response
      // available to this file, so you can provide it as parameter here
      // instead of the {{CHECKOUT_SESSION_ID}} placeholder.
      sessionId: '{{CHECKOUT_SESSION_ID}}'
    }).then(function (result) {
      // If `redirectToCheckout` fails due to a browser or network
      // error, display the localized error message to your customer
      // using `result.error.message`.
    });
    // Initialize Stripe.js with the same connected account ID used when creating
    // the Checkout Session.
    const stripe = Stripe('pk_test_TYooMQauvdEDq54NiTphI7jx', {
      stripeAccount: '{{CONNECTED_STRIPE_ACCOUNT_ID}}'
    });
    
    stripe.redirectToCheckout({
      // Make the id field from the Checkout Session creation API response
      // available to this file, so you can provide it as parameter here
      // instead of the {{CHECKOUT_SESSION_ID}} placeholder.
      sessionId: '{{CHECKOUT_SESSION_ID}}'
    }).then((result) => {
      // If `redirectToCheckout` fails due to a browser or network
      // error, display the localized error message to your customer
      // using `result.error.message`.
    });

    The customer will be redirected to the success_url once they complete payment.

    If you need to fulfill purchased goods or services after the payment, refer to Checkout Purchase Fulfllment.

    Parameter conversion

    The new version of Checkout supports most of the functionality of the legacy version of Checkout. However, the two versions do not share the same API. The table below maps parameters and configuration options between the legacy version and the new version.

    The legacy Checkout reference documents parameters accepted by the previous version. For a full list of configuration options accepted by the new version of Checkout, see the Stripe.js reference and the API reference for Checkout Sessions.

    Legacy version New version Integration tips      
    key No longer a parameter passed to Checkout. Specify the publishable key when initializing Stripe.js as Stripe('pk_...') instead.      
    token or source successUrl There is no longer a callback that is called in JavaScript when the payment completes. Because your customer is paying on a different page, set up a URL to indicate success after your customer has completed Checkout and specify it with successUrl.      
    image Business branding
    Upload your business logo or icon in the Dashboard.

    Product images
    Client integration
    Upload an image when creating the product in the Dashboard.

    Server integration
    Session.line_items.images
    The legacy version of Checkout let you specify an arbitrary image to display to display to your customer. The new version uses specific images for your business’s branding and for the products you are selling.

    Business branding
    Checkout displays your business logo by default and falls back to your business icon alongside your business name. You can upload these in the Dashboard.

    Product images
    In the client integration, you can upload images when creating a product. In the server integration, you can specify images for each line item with Session.line_items.images.
         
    name Client integration
    SKU/plan’s product.name

    Server integration
    Session.line_items.name or product.name for plans specified in Session.subscription_data.
    If you specify a SKU or plan, Checkout displays the name of the product to which the SKU or plan belongs to the customer. If you specify Session.line_items on the server, Checkout displays the name for each line item.      
    description Client integration
    SKU/plan’s product.description

    Server integration
    Session.line_items.description or product.description for plans specified in Session.subscription_data.
    If you specify a SKU, Checkout displays the SKU’s name to the customer. If you specify a plan, Checkout displays an automatically computed description of how often payments will occur. If you specify Session.line_items on the server, Checkout displays the description for each line item.      
    amount Client integration
    Automatically calculated as the sum of amounts over all SKUs or plans.

    Server integration
    Automatically calculated as the sum of amounts over all line_items or subscription_data.items.
    The total amount is the sum of the SKUs, line items, or plans you pass to Checkout.      
    locale Client integration
    locale

    Server integration
    Session.locale
    You can specify a supported locale in both the client integration (in redirectToCheckout) and the server integration (when creating a Checkout Session via the API).      
    billingAddress Client Integration
    billingAddressCollection

    Server integration
    Session.billing_address_collection
    Checkout automatically collects the billing address when required for fraud-prevention or regulatory purposes. If you would like to always collect the biling address, you can specify this parameter in both the client and server integrations.      
    zipCode Automatically collected by Checkout Checkout automatically collects the postal code when required for fraud-prevention or regulatory purposes.      
    currency Client integration
    SKU/plan’s currency

    Server integration
    Session.currency
           
    panelLabel Not supported, although support is planned Checkout automatically customizes the button label depending on the items you are selling. Support for custom button label text is planned.      
    shippingAddress Not supported, although support is planned Until Checkout supports shipping address collection, we recommend collecting the address yourself before redirecting to Checkout. If you collect it ahead of time and are using the server integration, you can pass it to Checkout using payment_intent_data.shipping.      
    email Client integration
    customerEmail

    Server integration
    Session.customer_email
    If you already know your customer’s email, specify it here so they do not need to enter it again.      
    allowRememberMe Not supported The new version of Checkout does not support Remember Me. If you would like to reuse your existing customers, we recommend specifying the customer parameter when creating a Checkout Session.      
    closed cancelUrl When a customer wants to close Checkout, they either close the browser tab or navigate to the cancelUrl.
