Customer Portal Session

The Billing customer portal is a Stripe-hosted UI for subscription and billing management.

A portal configuration describes the functionality and features that you want to provide to your customers through the portal.

A portal session describes the instantiation of the customer portal for a particular customer. By visiting the session’s URL, the customer can manage their subscriptions and billing details. For security reasons, sessions are short-lived and will expire if the customer does not visit the URL. Create sessions on-demand when customers intend to manage their subscriptions and billing details.

Invoices are statements of amounts owed by a customer, and are either generated one-off, or generated periodically from a subscription.

They contain invoice items, and proration adjustments that may be caused by subscription upgrades/downgrades (if necessary).

If your invoice is configured to be billed through automatic charges, Stripe automatically finalizes your invoice and attempts payment. Note that finalizing the invoice, when automatic, does not happen immediately as the invoice is created. Stripe waits until one hour after the last webhook was successfully sent (or the last webhook timed out after failing). If you (and the platforms you may have connected to) have no webhooks configured, Stripe waits one hour after creation to finalize the invoice.

If your invoice is configured to be billed by sending an email, then based on your email settings, Stripe will email the invoice to your customer and await payment. These emails can contain a link to a hosted page to pay the invoice.

Stripe applies any customer credit on the account before determining the amount due for the invoice (i.e., the amount that will be actually charged). If the amount due for the invoice is less than Stripe’s minimum allowed charge per currency, the invoice is automatically marked paid, and we add the amount due to the customer’s credit balance which is applied to the next invoice.

More details on the customer’s credit balance are here.

Invoice Items

Invoice Items represent the component lines of an invoice. An invoice item is added to an invoice by creating or updating it with an invoice field, at which point it will be included as an invoice line item within invoice.lines.

Invoice Items can be created before you are ready to actually send the invoice. This can be particularly useful when combined with a subscription. Sometimes you want to add a charge or credit to a customer, but actually charge or credit the customer’s card only at the end of a regular billing cycle. This is useful for combining several charges (to minimize per-transaction fees), or for having Stripe tabulate your usage-based billing totals.

A billing meter is a resource that allows you to track usage of a particular event. For example, you might create a billing meter to track the number of API calls made by a particular user. You can then attach the billing meter to a price and attach the price to a subscription to charge the user for the number of API calls they make.

Meter Events

A billing meter event represents a customer’s usage of a product. Meter events are used to bill a customer based on their usage. Meter events are associated with billing meters, which define the shape of the event’s payload and how those events are aggregated for billing.

Meter Event Adjustment

A billing meter event adjustment is a resource that allows you to cancel a meter event. For example, you might create a billing meter event adjustment to cancel a meter event that was created in error or attached to the wrong customer.

Meter Event Summary

A billing meter event summary represents an aggregated view of a customer’s billing meter events within a specified timeframe. It indicates how much usage was accrued by a customer for that period.


You can now model subscriptions more flexibly using the Prices API. It replaces the Plans API and is backwards compatible to simplify your migration.

Plans define the base price, currency, and billing cycle for recurring purchases of products. Products help you track inventory or provisioning, and plans help you track pricing. Different physical goods or levels of service should be represented by products, and pricing options should be represented by plans. This approach lets you change prices without having to change your provisioning scheme.

For example, you might have a single “gold” product that has plans for $10/month, $100/year, €9/month, and €90/year.

Related guides: Set up a subscription and more about products and prices.


A Quote is a way to model prices that you’d like to provide to a customer. Once accepted, it will automatically create an invoice, subscription or subscription schedule.

Subscription Items

Subscription items allow you to create customer subscriptions with more than one plan, making it easy to represent complex billing relationships.

Test ClocksTest helper

A test clock enables deterministic control over objects in testmode. With a test clock, you can create objects at a frozen time in the past or future, and advance to a specific future time to observe webhooks and state changes. After the clock advances, you can either validate the current state of your scenario (and test your assumptions), change the current state of your scenario (and test more complex scenarios), or keep advancing forward in time.

Usage Records

Usage records allow you to report customer usage and metrics to Stripe for metered billing of subscription prices.

This is our legacy usage-based billing API. See the updated usage-based billing docs.


This is an object representing a Stripe account. You can retrieve it to see properties on the account like its current requirements or if the account is enabled to make live charges or receive payouts.

For accounts where controller.requirement_collection is application, which includes Custom accounts, the properties below are always returned.

For accounts where controller.requirement_collection is stripe, which includes Standard and Express accounts, some properties are only returned until you create an Account Link or Account Session to start Connect Onboarding. Learn about the differences between accounts.

Account Session

An AccountSession allows a Connect platform to grant access to a connected account in Connect embedded components.

We recommend that you create an AccountSession each time you need to display an embedded component to your user. Do not save AccountSessions to your database as they expire relatively quickly, and cannot be used more than once.

Related guide: Connect embedded components

Application Fees

When you collect a transaction fee on top of a charge made for your user (using Connect), an Application Fee object is created in your account. You can list, retrieve, and refund application fees.

Related guide: Collecting application fees

Application Fee Refunds

Application Fee Refund objects allow you to refund an application fee that has previously been created but not yet refunded. Funds will be refunded to the Stripe account from which the fee was originally collected.

Country Specs

Stripe needs to collect certain pieces of information about each account created. These requirements can differ depending on the account’s country. The Country Specs API makes these rules available to your integration.

You can also view the information from this API call as an online guide.

External Bank Accounts

External bank accounts are financial accounts associated with a Stripe platform’s connected accounts for the purpose of transferring funds to or from the connected account’s Stripe balance.

External Account Cards

External account cards are debit cards associated with a Stripe platform’s connected accounts for the purpose of transferring funds to or from the connected accounts Stripe balance.


This is an object representing a person associated with a Stripe account.

A platform cannot access a person for an account where account.controller.requirement_collection is stripe, which includes Standard and Express accounts, after creating an Account Link or Account Session to start Connect onboarding.

See the Standard onboarding or Express onboarding documentation for information about prefilling information and account onboarding steps. Learn more about handling identity verification with the API.


To top up your Stripe balance, you create a top-up object. You can retrieve individual top-ups, as well as list all top-ups. Top-ups are identified by a unique, random ID.

Related guide: Topping up your platform account


A Transfer object is created when you move funds between Stripe accounts as part of Connect.

Before April 6, 2017, transfers also represented movement of funds from a Stripe account to a card or bank account. This behavior has since been split out into a Payout object, with corresponding payout endpoints. For more information, read about the transfer/payout split.

Related guide: Creating separate charges and transfers

Transfer Reversals

Stripe Connect platforms can reverse transfers made to a connected account, either entirely or partially, and can also specify whether to refund any related application fees. Transfer reversals add to the platform’s balance and subtract from the destination account’s balance.

Reversing a transfer that was made for a destination charge is allowed only up to the amount of the charge. It is possible to reverse a transfer_group transfer only if the destination account has enough balance to cover the reversal.

Secret Store is an API that allows Stripe Apps developers to securely persist secrets for use by UI Extensions and app backends.

The primary resource in Secret Store is a secret. Other apps can’t view secrets created by an app. Additionally, secrets are scoped to provide further permission control.

All Dashboard users and the app backend share account scoped secrets. Use the account scope for secrets that don’t change per-user, like a third-party API key.

A user scoped secret is accessible by the app backend and one specific Dashboard user. Use the user scope for per-user secrets like per-user OAuth tokens, where different users might have different permissions.

Financial Accounts

Stripe Treasury provides users with a container for money called a FinancialAccount that is separate from their Payments balance. FinancialAccounts serve as the source and destination of Treasury’s money movement APIs.

Financial Account Features

Encodes whether a FinancialAccount has access to a particular Feature, with a status enum and associated status_details. Stripe or the platform can control Features via the requested field.

Transaction Entries

TransactionEntries represent individual units of money movements within a single Transaction.

Outbound Transfers

Use OutboundTransfers to transfer funds from a FinancialAccount to a PaymentMethod belonging to the same entity. To send funds to a different party, use OutboundPayments instead. You can send funds over ACH rails or through a domestic wire transfer to a user’s own external bank account.

Simulate OutboundTransfer state changes with the /v1/test_helpers/treasury/outbound_transfers endpoints. These methods can only be called on test mode objects.

Outbound Payments

Use OutboundPayments to send funds to another party’s external bank account or FinancialAccount. To send money to an account belonging to the same user, use an OutboundTransfer.

Simulate OutboundPayment state changes with the /v1/test_helpers/treasury/outbound_payments endpoints. These methods can only be called on test mode objects.

Received Credits

ReceivedCredits represent funds sent to a FinancialAccount (for example, via ACH or wire). These money movements are not initiated from the FinancialAccount.

Received Debits

ReceivedDebits represent funds pulled from a FinancialAccount. These are not initiated from the FinancialAccount.

Credit Reversals

You can reverse some ReceivedCredits depending on their network and source flow. Reversing a ReceivedCredit leads to the creation of a new object known as a CreditReversal.

Debit Reversals

You can reverse some ReceivedDebits depending on their network and source flow. Reversing a ReceivedDebit leads to the creation of a new object known as a DebitReversal.


A feature represents a monetizable ability or functionality in your system. Features can be assigned to products, and when those products are purchased, Stripe will create an entitlement to the feature for the purchasing customer.

Product Feature

A product_feature represents an attachment between a feature and a product. When a product is purchased that has a feature attached, Stripe will create an entitlement to the feature for the purchasing customer.

Active Entitlement

An active entitlement describes access to a feature for a customer.

Scheduled Queries

If you have scheduled a Sigma query, you’ll receive a sigma.scheduled_query_run.created webhook each time the query runs. The webhook contains a ScheduledQueryRun object, which you can use to retrieve the query results.

Report Runs

The Report Run object represents an instance of a report type generated with specific run parameters. Once the object is created, Stripe begins processing the report. When the report has finished running, it will give you a reference to a file where you can retrieve your results. For an overview, see API Access to Reports.

Note that certain report types can only be run based on your live-mode data (not test-mode data), and will error when queried without a live-mode API key.

Report Types

The Report Type resource corresponds to a particular type of report, such as the “Activity summary” or “Itemized payouts” reports. These objects are identified by an ID belonging to a set of enumerated values. See API Access to Reports documentation for those Report Type IDs, along with required and optional parameters.

Note that certain report types can only be run based on your live-mode data (not test-mode data), and will error when queried without a live-mode API key.

Account Owner

Describes an owner of an account.

Climate Product

A Climate product represents a type of carbon removal unit available for reservation. You can retrieve it to see the current price and availability.

Forwarding Request

Instructs Stripe to make a request on your behalf using the destination URL. The destination URL is activated by Stripe at the time of onboarding. Stripe verifies requests with your credentials provided during onboarding, and injects card details from the payment_method into the request.

Stripe redacts all sensitive fields and headers, including authentication credentials and card numbers, before storing the request and response data in the forwarding Request object, which are subject to a 30-day retention period.

You can provide a Stripe idempotency key to make sure that requests with the same key result in only one outbound request. The Stripe idempotency key provided should be unique and different from any idempotency keys provided on the underlying third-party request.

Forwarding Requests are synchronous requests that return a response or time out according to Stripe’s limits.
