How Do I Use Stripe in Webflow?

Stripe is a popular payment gateway that allows businesses to accept online payments. If you are using Webflow to build your website, integrating Stripe can be a seamless process. In this tutorial, we will explore how you can use Stripe in Webflow.

Step 1: Sign up for a Stripe account
Before you can start using Stripe in Webflow, you need to sign up for a Stripe account. Visit the Stripe website and click on the “Sign Up” button. Fill in the required information and follow the instructions to create your account.

Step 2: Obtain your API keys
To connect your Webflow website with Stripe, you need to obtain your API keys. Once you are logged into your Stripe account, navigate to the “Developers” section and click on “API Keys”. Here, you will find your publishable key and secret key.

Note: Keep your secret key secure and never share it publicly.

Step 3: Add the Stripe JavaScript library
To use Stripe on your Webflow website, you need to add the Stripe JavaScript library. Copy the following code snippet and paste it into the <head> tag of your HTML document.

<script src=""></script>

This code snippet imports the necessary JavaScript file from the Stripe server.

Step 4: Create a payment form
Now that you have set up your Stripe account and added the necessary JavaScript library, it’s time to create a payment form on Webflow. Start by adding an HTML form element wherever you want to place the payment form.

<form id="payment-form">
  <input type="text" name="cardholder-name" placeholder="Cardholder Name" required>
  <div id="card-element"></div>
  <button type="submit">Pay</button>

In this example, we have added an input field for the cardholder’s name and a placeholder for the cardholder’s name. We have also created a <div> element with the id “card-element” where Stripe will dynamically generate the credit card input fields.

Step 5: Initialize Stripe and handle form submission
To handle the form submission and process the payment, you need to initialize Stripe and attach an event listener to the form submit event. Add the following JavaScript code snippet before the closing </body> tag of your HTML document.

  var stripe = Stripe('your_public_key');
  var elements = stripe.elements();
  var cardElement = elements.create('card');
  var form = document.getElementById('payment-form');
  form.addEventListener('submit', function(event) {
    stripe.createToken(cardElement).then(function(result) {
      if (result.error) {
        // Display error message to the user
      } else {
        // Send token to your server

Replace ‘your_public_key’ with your actual publishable key obtained from your Stripe account.

Step 6: Handle payment on your server
Once you receive a token from Stripe, you need to send it to your server for further processing. The exact implementation will depend on your server-side technology stack.

  • For example, in Node.js:
  • var stripe = require('stripe')('your_secret_key');'/charge', (req, res) => {
        amount: 2000,
        currency: 'usd',
        source: req.body.stripeToken,
        description: 'Example charge',
      }, function(err, charge) {
        if (err) {
          // Handle error
        } else {
          // Handle success
  • For PHP:
  • \Stripe\Stripe::setApiKey('your_secret_key');
    $token = $_POST['stripeToken'];
    $charge = \Stripe\Charge::create([
      'amount' => 2000,
      'currency' => 'usd',
      'source' => $token,
      'description' => 'Example charge',


In this tutorial, we have covered the steps required to use Stripe in Webflow. We started by signing up for a Stripe account and obtaining the necessary API keys.

Then, we added the Stripe JavaScript library and created a payment form on Webflow. Finally, we initialized Stripe and handled the form submission to process the payment.

Remember to test your integration thoroughly before deploying it to your live website. With Stripe and Webflow, you can build a secure and seamless payment experience for your customers.
