Sync between Amberflo and Stripe

Syncing customers in Amberflo and Stripe is during the creation of customers in your system.

The sample code provides the following functionality:

  1. Create the customer in Stripe to obtain the Stripe ID.
  2. Create the customer in Amberflo and set the Stripe ID from the previous step in the traits
  3. Assign the customer to a default rate plan.

Maven dependencies (check for latest versions):


Java code with helper class to integrate with Amberflo and Stripe integration for customer creation, call AmberfloCustomerHelper.createCustomerInStripeAndAmberflo() method from your customer transaction.
