Here are some examples to help you integrate your application with Stripe to use the NetSuite integration.
The code examples below are designed to provide boilerplate code to demonstrate how the Stripe NetSuite integration works, and how to handle unique business processes using the integration. All of the examples will run as-in against your Stripe test environment.
To run any of the examples:
- Install the stripe ruby gem. The example code can easily be ported to other languages.
- Replace the test key in the source files with your Stripe account's test key.

Creating & Paying a NetSuite Invoice with Stripe
You can create a NetSuite invoice and pay it off using the Stripe API without interfacing with NetSuite directly.
Creating a Stripe Subscription
A simple example demonstrating how to create a Stripe Subscription and pass custom data to NetSuite.
Paying an Existing NetSuite Invoice with Stripe
You can pay an existing NetSuite invoice with Stripe by passing the NetSuite Invoice ID to Stripe. The integration applies a CustomerPayment against the invoice you specify.
Creating a NetSuite using SuiteTalk and paying it with Stripe
Here's an example of how to create a NetSuite invoice using the SuiteTalk API and then paying that invoice off using a Stripe charge.
Payment Installments Against a Single NetSuite Invoice
You can use Stripe Subscriptions to create payment installments against a single NetSuite invoice.
Attaching a Stripe Charge as a CustomerDeposit against a SalesOrder
You can attach a Stripe charge against a SalesOrder as a customer deposit by specifying the internal ID of the SalesOrder.
Creating a Standalone Invoice with Stripe
The integration supports translating subscription-created invoices with revenue recognition, but it also supports translating one-off invoices creating in Stripe. This example demonstrates how to create a customer and a standalone invoice with a custom SKU.
If Stripe's subscription billing isn't workable for your use-case, but you want to use the Stripe NetSuite integration to create invoices in NetSuite, creating a standalone invoice might work for you.
Collecting Payment for a Standalone Payment with Stripe Checkout
This example demonstrates how to use Stripe Checkout to collect payment credentials, and then create a Stripe Invoice and Charge the collected credit card.

Authorizing a Charge with Stripe Checkout for Capture from NetSuite
Often in eCommerce flows you'll want to authorize a charge during checkout but only later capture the charge once the order has been fulfilled in NetSuite. Here's an example of how to implement this using Stripe and the authorization-capture workflow:
ACH-in & Bitcoin Payments
ACH-in and Bitcoin charges are fully supported in the integration. This example will create a bitcoin payments in your Stripe test environment to allow you to inspect the resulting customer payment in NetSuite.
Creating Sales Orders with Stripe Orders API (Relay)
This example demonstrates how the integration's order integration works:
- Creates a SKU, which is translated into a NonInventoryItem in NetSuite
- Creates a Order with a single line item
- Waits for the translation to complete, and returns the NetSuite SalesOrder internal ID.
Copy Stripe Subscription Metadata to Subscription Invoice Metadata
Stripe Subscriptions create a Stripe Invoice every plan period. In some cases, copying metadata from the subscription to the invoice is helpful for setting standard or custom fields on the invoice. For instance, if there's an internal subscription order number that you want on every subsequent invoice, you can copy this number from the subscription metadata to the invoice metadata so the number can flow to the NetSuite invoice.
Connect Stripe Plans to Existing NetSuite Items
If you are using Stripe Subscriptions you can connect your Stripe Plans to existing items in NetSuite using the following migration tool.
Link Stripe Customers to NetSuite Customers by Email
If you've been using NetSuite for a while, but are just getting started with Stripe, you'll want to link your Stripe customers to the associated NetSuite customer. Here's an example of linking Stripe customers with NetSuite customers by using email as the linking key between the two systems.
Link Stripe Customers to NetSuite Customers Using a CSV
If you have existing NetSuite customers that you'd like to Stripe customers you can create a mapping between the two systems and use this script to link Stripe & NetSuite customers together.
Link Stripe Customers to NetSuite Customers Using Card Details
When migrating card data from another processor to Stripe the data provided by the old processor can sometimes be spotty. Use this script to match Stripe customers to a CSV row using card details (last4, zip, expiration, etc) and save additional customer data to Stripe from that CSV file.
Pay Due NetSuite Invoices Using Stripe
You can leverage SuiteSync to auto-pay invoices in NetSuite using Stripe. SuiteSync has built-in functionality to handle this, but you can also customize the example code below to fit your exact use-case.
Customer NetSuite Invoices created from Stripe Subscriptions
Each billing period a Stripe subscription creates an invoice in NetSuite. You can customize the data on that invoice by adding metadata to the Stripe subscription to be copied to each subsequent invoice.
Find Closed and Unpaid, or Forgiven Invoices
If you choose not to automatically close out unpaid or forgiven Stripe invoices in NetSuite, you will want to create a custom process around handled this "bad debt". Here's a starting point you can use to pull identify these invoices in Stripe.
Remove Metadata Keys
The integration adds metadata keys to Stripe records.. If you are developing customized integrations leveraging SuiteSync, it may be helpful to wipe all of the metadata keys that SuiteSync uses in order to re-run integration tests. Below is a script that wipes metadata keys from your Stripe account.
Demonstrate Stripe Subscriptions Edge Case
There are many edge cases that can occur when processing subscription payments. Below is a script that generates various subscription states so you inspect how they look in your NetSuite account.
