Stripe Subscriptions

Configure Stripe Subscriptions

The zCart script has pre-integrated stripe APIs for subscription billing. You just have to configure the system with your stripe APIs and subscriptions.

If you’re following the documentation and already configured the Stripe Connect APIs you don’t need to reconfigure it again. You can use the previously configured API credentials but have to create Stripe subscriptions. Please check out Stripe’s documentation here for creating subscriptions. Then create the same subscription plan on your zCart admin panel.

Warning: The subscription plan ids of Stripe and zCart have to be exactly the same on both platforms.

Please match the subscription plan Id to the Stripe product API ID
