Get started with the Stripe CLI
Build, test, and manage your Stripe integration directly from the command line.
The Stripe CLI is a developer tool to help you build, test, and manage your integration with Stripe directly from the command line. It’s simple to install, works on macOS, Windows, and Linux, and offers a range of functionality to enhance your developer experience with Stripe. You can use the Stripe CLI to:
- Create, retrieve, update, or delete any of your Stripe resources in test mode (for example, create a product)
- Stream real-time API requests and events happening in your account
- Trigger events to test your webhooks integration
Install the Stripe CLI
From the command-line, use an install script or download and extract a versioned archive file for your operating system to install the CLI.
Log in to the CLI
- Login and authenticate your Stripe user Account to generate a set of restricted keys. To learn more, see Stripe CLI keys and permissions.
- Press the
Enterkey on your keyboard to complete the authentication process in your browser.

- Optionally, if you don’t want to use a browser, use the
--interactiveflag to authenticate with an existing API secret key or restricted key. This can be helpful when authenticating to the CLI without a browser, such as in a CI/CD pipeline.
stripe login --interactive
- Optionally, use the
--api-keyflag to specify your API secret key inline each time you send a request.
