Stripe is a popular payment processor known for its fantastic APIs. In this guide, we’ll walk through how to pull transactions from the Stripe API directly into Google Sheets, using the free API Connector add-on for Google Sheets. We’ll first get an API key from Stripe, and then set up a request to pull in metrics from Stripe to your spreadsheet.

PART 1: GET YOUR STRIPE API KEY

  1. Log in to Stripe and click Developers > API keys from the left-hand menu
    stripe-img1
  2. On this page, you’ll see that API keys have already been automatically created for you. You can toggle between test data and real data; for now we’ll use the test data. (If you want to use live data, simply toggle the ‘Viewing Test Data’ option). Click to reveal the secret token:
    stripe-img2
  3. Once you have your key, copy it to your clipboard as we’ll need it shortly.

PART 2: CREATE YOUR API REQUEST URL

We’re going to follow the Stripe API documentation to request a list of transactions.

  • Base URL:https://api.stripe.com/v1
  • Endpoint: /charges

Putting it all together, we get the full API Request URL:
https://api.stripe.com/v1/charges

PART 3: ENTER VALUES INTO API CONNECTOR

We can now enter all our values into API Connector to start importing Stripe data into Google Sheets.

  1. Open up Google Sheets and click Add-ons > API Connector > Create New API Request.
  2. In the Create Request interface, enter the Request URL we just created
    stripe-img3
  3. Under headers, enter a key-value pair like this:
    Authorization Bearer {Secret Token}

    Replace {Secret Token} with the secret token you got above in step 3 above.
    stripe-img4

  4. Create a new tab. You can call it whatever you like, but here we’ll call it ‘Stripe Charges’. While still in that tab, click ‘Set’ to use that tab as your data destination.
  5. Name your request. Again we’ll call it ‘Stripe Charges’
  6. Click Run and a moment later you’ll see sales data populate the Stripe Charges tab in your Google Sheet:stripe-img5

PART 4: NOTES AND EXPANSIONS

  1. You can test other endpoints as described in the documentation. For example, change your URL endpoint to /products to see a list of products, or to /customers to see a list of customers.
  2. By default, Stripe will only return 10 records at a time. To retrieve more, use the ‘limit’ and ‘starting_after’ parameters as described in the documentation, e.g. https://api.stripe.com/v1/charges?limit=100&starting_after=ch_1F2EjwIdg4lVxlj2DhB3fQ4S. The ‘limit’ value can be between 1 and 100, while the ‘starting_after’ parameter should take the name of an object ID value in your report.
