Create Charges

Stripe offers services that allow individuals and businesses to accept payments over the Internet. In order to charge a credit card, you first need to create a charge object. This activity allows you to do that. To create charges, first add this activity to your canvas, and configure it. Select the appropriate connection for Stripe. If you haven’t created a connection, select ‘Add new’ to create one. 

Select the code for the currency that you want to set for transactions (e.g., USD, EUR). In ‘Charges Amount’, enter a positive integer in the smallest currency unit (e.g 100 cents to charge $1.00, or 1 to charge ¥1, a 0-decimal currency) representing how much to charge the card. The minimum amount is $0.50 (or equivalent in charge currency). 

In the ‘Customer ID’ field, you need to select/specify the ID of the customer who you wish to charge. Clicking the ‘Refresh’ icon will fetch the list of all the customers of your Stripe account—based on the connection selected—and display it in the drop-down list. ‘ID’. In case there are too many customers, you can search the required one by his ‘name’ or ‘ID’. Alternatively, you can manually enter the name or ID of the customer that you wish to charge or use the output of the previous activity as an input for this field.

In the 'Description' field, you can also enter a short description about the charge. This description will be displayed alongside the charge in the web interface, or in the receipt emails. 

Once you have entered these details, click on ‘Done’ and run the flow. This will create new charges.
