This gem is used to create plans, which can be subscribed by a user, and it will charge the user automatically through Stripe. Currently, we are supporting one active subscription per user at one time.

At Admin end this will add a configuration tab as "Recurring".

  • Creating a Recurring Provider:

    • Create a recurring using Spree::Recurring::StripeRecurring Provider and save
    • Add secret key and public key provided by stripe to this recurring.
  • Creating Plans for Recurring Provider:

    • Go to "Manage Plans" from Recurring edit page.
    • Create a plan by specifying respective details. This will create the same plan on your stripe account.
    • Only name can be updated for a plan.

One Recurring Provider can have multiple plans.

At Front end you can view all plans here: http://your.domain.name/plans

  • Subscribe a plan:

    • Click subscribe for any plan.
    • Fill in credit card details and submit.
    • This will create a customer in Stripe for user and subscribe that user respective to plan.
  • Unsubscribe a plan:

    • In plans page subscribed plan will be listed and from there user can unsubscribe from plan.

At Admin, all subscriptions can be seen under "Reports" -> "Subscriptions".

Stripe Webhook

Create a webhook at stripe with url http://your.domain.name/recurring_hooks/handler which will receive below mentioned stripe event hooks.

* customer.subscription.created
* customer.subscription.updated
* invoice.payment_succeeded
* charge.succeeded

These events can be viewed at admin in "Reports" -> "Subscription Events"
