That is the single best blog tutorial I’ve ever read. Everything is explained from the ground up so someone with no knowledge of API or stripe can understand the whole way through. Good job!
Great read, thanks! Very useful!
With that approach it looks like you have the burden of constantly having to keep the stripe database and django database in sync. I would hate to have to reconcile discrepancies between a local database of products and stripe. I’ve had to build a django ecommerce system with stripe and we did it differently. We made stripe the authority on all prices and products and customer records and only kept enough information for logins and passwords and nothing else.
Thanks! Well written and good presentations!
Saving for later. Hope I get to the point where I need it.
