'Stripe_account' => [
            'publishable_key' => 'pk_test_51JFC6****************************',
            'secret_key' => 'sk_test_51JFC6r***************************'

Create Route :

Create a route to create customer on stripe , so that we can check whether stripe is properly integrated or not .

Route::post('cratecustomer', [paymentController::class,'createCustomerOnStripe']);

Create a customer on Stripe :

Lets create a customer on stripe , use the following codes on your controller to create customer on stripe.

paymentController.php :


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class paymentController extends Controller
    public function createCustomerOnStripe(Request $request)
            $data = $request->all();
            $email = $data['email'];

            // Get stripe secret key from your constants file

            $stripe_account = Config('constants.Stripe_account');
            $stripe_secret = $stripe_account['secret_key'];

            // create a customer on stripe for the requested email

            $stripe = new \Stripe\StripeClient(

            $customer = $stripe->customers->create([
                'email' => $email,
                'description' => 'customer '.$email,

            return $customer;
        catch(\Exception $e){
            return false;

In this code we are only providing email and description to create a customer , but you can provide more details like address , phone number , postal code and payment method etc. you can also visit the stripes official documentation for more detail .
