I finally got around to checking out Stripe after reading this post. Their documentation is pretty spectacular IMO.

- https://stripe.com/docs/tutorials/forms - https://stripe.com/docs/tutorials/charges

Was pretty much all I need to get started (I'm using one of their third party wrapping for .NET)

I guess it might get slightly more complicated if you are doing recurring billing or customers but their standard template should be sufficient for your needs at this stage. I pretty much took this example:

1) https://gist.github.com/1750361#file_stripe_tutorial_page.ht... 2) Pulled their API wrapper (they have PHP library) - I think the only part that needs updating is your API key 3) Followed their example listed on the page

and everything worked. Let me know if I can help further!

Nice! yep, the documentation is great alright, but I think I'm missing a pretty basic concept in here. I've got my html page with the form on it in my home/webapps/stripe folder. I've got the PHP package in my home directory. I've got the code from the charges tutorial, webapps/stripe. And now... I'm not sure how to know if it works. It seems to me that some variables and filepaths in the charges code ought to be changed, and I'm stalled at that point.

Does that make sense?
