Getting Started#

Set up Stripe Products#

First add your products in the Stripe dashboard. Be sure to add readable product names, descriptions, and images, as these will be used for the in-app store. Additionally, make sure each product includes at least one Price.

Set up your development environment#

Setting up your development is similar to the process for subscriptions, but has fewer steps.

  1. If you haven’t already, update the STRIPE_* variables in settings.py or in your os environment variables to match the keys from Stripe. See this page to find your API keys.

  2. Run python manage.py bootstrap_ecommerce to sync your Stripe products and prices to your local database.

  3. Add the product IDs you want to include to the ACTIVE_ECOMMERCE_PRODUCT_IDS setting/environment variable. In your .env file, you can add a list of products by separating them with commas. E.g.


Once you’ve done this, login and click on the e-commerce tab in the navigation, and you should see your store.


Like subscriptions, it’s recommended to use webhooks to ensure you receive all updates from Stripe. For the e-commerce store, the only required webhook is checkout.session.completed.

Follow the subscriptions documentation to set up webhooks in development and production.
