This guide will help you set up your Stripe account by explaining the different Stripe products, prices and what to copy where. It is important that your Stripe account is production-ready, meaning it is created and approved. This usually requires you to fill out a lot of legal and fiscal information. As this is part of the Stripe onboarding I will not go into this.
Configure Blomstra Payments
Visit the "Developer" by clicking the option on the top right navigation bar. Click on "API keys" on the left hand menu. Copy the "Publishable key" and "Secret key" to the Blomstra Payments settings page of your community. Save these settings.
Next click on "Webhooks" in the "Developers" page in Stripe, then on "Add endpoint" and on the form:
- Endpoint URL:
- Description: Blomstra Payments webhooks for Your Site.
- If you have the choice: Listen to Events on your account.
- Version: 2022-08-01 or Latest.
On your dashboard, go to Products and click "add product". You will notice a form pops up that allows you to configure a name, description and image among others. Fill out these details for the Blomstra Payments type you want to add, for instance for bounties you could simply name it "Bounty" or "Pledge" and then describe it what the pledge is used for.
The next heading is called "Price information" this is the most crucial part of configuring your product. The following Pricing models are relevant to us:
- Standard pricing for one time and recurring payments.
- Customer chooses price where the user specifies exactly how much this wish to pay.
For the Bounties Payment type you need to choose the "Customer chooses price", for all other Payment types of this extension, you need to select Standard pricing. Fill out the fields to your liking. Some pointers:
- Currencies are taken into account.
- For standard pricing Metered usage is ignored.
- Trials are possible.
- Don't go crazy on the amount of options as the screen space is limited.
To copy the product ID needed by Blomstra Payments, visit the Product detail page and click the
prod_ id on the top right or click
ctrl + i. You can then use this product ID in one of the tags or permission groups based on the Blomstra Payment Type, see: https://discuss.flarum.org/d/26095-payments-monetize-your-community.
