Utilizing Laravel's Cashier Scaffold comes with a fully setup billing system for use with Stripe.


Some familiarity and an accout with Stripe.


The billing system handles the stripe integration with cashier as mentioned. The remainder of integrations with Stripe occur through PHP components. It contains the endpoint for Stripe feedback as well as a simple config file for handling various "plans" your app may offer.



Within the billing config you can set the details for your invoices as well as the various plans you offer their names as per Stripe configuration which you can set in your .env. These plans are what is listed to the end user when they view the billing screen.

User Data

As with all Stripe integrations including Cashier all you recieve is the last 4 digits of a credit card when the subscription is generated. The billing UI provides the user with which card their subscription is on, as well as the name of the plan they are on. It also shows their billing email, state and country. This can be helpful for any form of tax filings you need to do.

Change Plan

This allows the user to change their subscription plan which is then prorated as per Stripe's default methods.


We've integrated Stripe coupons into this as well. You can generate coupons on Stripe and enable you users to enter them on the 'Coupons' tab in the billing portion of the app.

Billing Portal

Rather than maintain a complex set of forms and views for payment methods, cancelling, renewing, and invoices, Scaffold by default lets Stripe handle all that with the billing portal.

In order to ensure you have everything set up correctly you need to have a Stripe account and some ENVs set.




Stripe Dashboard

Within Stripe's dashboard you need to set up your products, some pricing the billing config handles the two cases of monthly and yearly. Within products you create prices to ensure you do that properly. You then need to configure the webhook which can be done either directly in the UI: please follow Laravel's Cashier docs for those details OR you can use their command php artisan cashier:webhook. Lastly, you need to set up your "Customer Billing Portal" and ensure its branding matches what you want for your product.


These links are to the test endpoints, you will need to do the same on live/prod mode.

If you enable tax you need to set an origin location for your business:

You need to also ensure that your billing portal is configured or "enabled"
