    Possible enum values
    off_session

    Use off_session if your customer may or may not be present in your checkout flow.

Create a PaymentIntent

Creates a PaymentIntent object.

After the PaymentIntent is created, attach a payment method and confirm to continue the payment. Learn more about the available payment flows with the Payment Intents API.

When you use confirm=true during creation, it’s equivalent to creating and confirming the PaymentIntent in the same call. You can use any parameters available in the confirm API when you supply confirm=true.

Parameters

  • amountintegerRequired

    Amount intended to be collected by this PaymentIntent. A positive integer representing how much to charge in the smallest currency unit (e.g., 100 cents to charge $1.00 or 100 to charge ¥100, a zero-decimal currency). The minimum amount is $0.50 US or equivalent in charge currency. The amount value supports up to eight digits (e.g., a value of 99999999 for a USD charge of $999,999.99).

  • currencyenumRequired

    Three-letter ISO currency code, in lowercase. Must be a supported currency.

  • automatic_payment_methodsobject

    When you enable this parameter, this PaymentIntent accepts payment methods that you enable in the Dashboard and that are compatible with this PaymentIntent’s other parameters.

  • confirmboolean

    Set to true to attempt to confirm this PaymentIntent immediately. This parameter defaults to false. When creating and confirming a PaymentIntent at the same time, you can also provide the parameters available in the Confirm API.

  • customerstring

    ID of the Customer this PaymentIntent belongs to, if one exists.

    Payment methods attached to other Customers cannot be used with this PaymentIntent.

    If present in combination with setup_future_usage, this PaymentIntent’s payment method will be attached to the Customer after the PaymentIntent has been confirmed and any required actions from the user are complete.

  • descriptionstring

    An arbitrary string attached to the object. Often useful for displaying to users.

  • metadataobject

    Set of key-value pairs that you can attach to an object. This can be useful for storing additional information about the object in a structured format. Individual keys can be unset by posting an empty value to them. All keys can be unset by posting an empty value to metadata.

  • off_sessionboolean | stringonly when confirm=true

    Set to true to indicate that the customer isn’t in your checkout flow during this payment attempt and can’t authenticate. Use this parameter in scenarios where you collect card details and charge them later. This parameter can only be used with confirm=true.

  • payment_methodstring

    ID of the payment method (a PaymentMethod, Card, or compatible Source object) to attach to this PaymentIntent.

    If you omit this parameter with confirm=true, customer.default_source attaches as this PaymentIntent’s payment instrument to improve migration for users of the Charges API. We recommend that you explicitly provide the payment_method moving forward.

  • receipt_emailstring

    Email address to send the receipt to. If you specify receipt_email for a payment in live mode, you send a receipt regardless of your email settings.

  • setup_future_usageenum

    Indicates that you intend to make future payments with this PaymentIntent’s payment method.

    Providing this parameter will attach the payment method to the PaymentIntent’s Customer, if present, after the PaymentIntent is confirmed and any required actions from the user are complete. If no Customer was provided, the payment method can still be attached to a Customer after the transaction completes.

    When processing card payments, Stripe also uses setup_future_usage to dynamically optimize your payment flow and comply with regional legislation and network rules, such as SCA.

    Possible enum values
    off_session

    Use off_session if your customer may or may not be present in your checkout flow.

    on_session

    Use on_session if you intend to only reuse the payment method when your customer is present in your checkout flow.

  • shippingobject

    Shipping information for this PaymentIntent.

  • statement_descriptorstring

    Provides information about a card payment that customers see on their statements. Concatenated with the prefix (shortened descriptor) or statement descriptor that’s set on the account to form the complete statement descriptor. The concatenated descriptor must contain 1-22 characters.

Update a PaymentIntent

Updates properties on a PaymentIntent object without confirming.

Depending on which properties you update, you might need to confirm the PaymentIntent again. For example, updating the payment_method always requires you to confirm the PaymentIntent again. If you prefer to update and confirm at the same time, we recommend updating properties through the confirm API instead.

Parameters

  • amountinteger

    Amount intended to be collected by this PaymentIntent. A positive integer representing how much to charge in the smallest currency unit (e.g., 100 cents to charge $1.00 or 100 to charge ¥100, a zero-decimal currency).

Retrieve a PaymentIntent

Retrieves the details of a PaymentIntent that has previously been created.

You can retrieve a PaymentIntent client-side using a publishable key when the client_secret is in the query string.

Parameters

  • client_secretstringRequired if you use a publishable key.

    The client secret of the PaymentIntent. We require it if you use a publishable key to retrieve the source.

Returns

Returns a PaymentIntent if a valid identifier was provided.
