Pinax Stripe

Codecov CircleCI

This app was formerly called django-stripe-payments and has been renamed to avoid namespace collisions and to have more consistency with Pinax.


Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework. It is an ecosystem of reusable Django apps and starter project templates. This collection can be found at

This app was developed as part of the Pinax ecosystem but is just a Django app and can be used independently of other Pinax apps.


pinax-stripe is a payments Django app for Stripe.

This app allows you to process one off charges as well as signup users for recurring subscriptions managed by Stripe.

To bootstrap your project, we recommend you start with:


pinax-stripe supports a variety of Python and Django versions. It's best if you test each one of these before committing. Our Travis CI Integration will test these when you push but knowing before you commit prevents from having to do a lot of extra commits to get the build to pass.

Environment Setup

In order to easily test on all these Pythons and run the exact same thing that Travis CI will execute you'll want to setup pyenv and install the Python versions outlined in tox.ini.

If you are on the Mac, it's recommended you use brew. After installing brew run:

$ brew install pyenv pyenv-virtualenv pyenv-virtualenvwrapper


$ CFLAGS="-I$(xcrun --show-sdk-path)/usr/include -I$(brew --prefix openssl)/include" \
LDFLAGS="-L$(brew --prefix openssl)/lib" \
pyenv install 2.7.14 3.4.7 3.5.4 3.6.3

$ pyenv virtualenv 2.7.14
$ pyenv virtualenv 3.4.7
$ pyenv virtualenv 3.5.4
$ pyenv virtualenv 3.6.3
$ pyenv global 2.7.14 3.4.7 3.5.4 3.6.3

$ pip install detox

To run test suite:

Make sure you are NOT inside a virtualenv and then:

$ detox

This will execute the testing matrix in parallel as defined in the tox.ini.
