How to add Stripe Payment to Spring Boot Application
In this post, we will show how to add Stripe Payment to Spring boot application. Most enterprise applications offer a way where customers can pay online. Online payments are the backbone of the internet world in current times. If you ever built an application for a customer, previously there were physical cheques OR credit card payments. With the applications becoming more web-based, it has become the utmost necessary to integrate your application with some kind of payment gateway. Payment gateway will handle all tax and financial regulation related complications which the application doesn’t have to deal with.
The functionality is part of the application of Social KPI that I am building.
What are we trying to achieve here?
An administrator comes on the billing page and pays the bill for that month. Once the bill is paid, the billing page will show that the bill has been paid for that month. So the option to enter credit card details will only be shown if the bill has not been paid.
As part of the payment service, we will be using
Stripe . Once the user enters credit card details and she can enter
Pay Now button which will contact Stripe API to get token, this token will be used to create a charge on Stripe and Stripe will respond with success or failure of the charge.
To summarize the flow
- User clicks
Pay Nowto pay the charges
- On server side, controller uses the token and amount to create charge for that customer for application usage.
- For paid bills, the status is marked as
paidfor the customer for that month.
Stripe APIs, we must first create account on stripe.com as a developer and get the keys. Good thing is Stripe offers API keys for test and live environments. For this post and demo, we will be using test keys only. Once we have API keys, we will use them in our frontend and backend implementation.
In following screenshot, you will see how the billing page will look:
Once the user clicks on
As part of the application Social KPI, I have a database table
billing to track customer's paid bills. The
As shown above,
paymentService will create a charge on Stripe. To implement
paymentService, you will need to include stripe java library in your implementation.
So the service class
PaymentService will look like below to create charge:
Once the bill is paid, the administrator will see this as the bill paid for that month.
