Course Overview and Benefits

Stripe is one of the most popular payment processing methods worldwide.  By learning how to connect FileMaker with their API (Application Programming Interface), you can now seamlessly work with all data from a Stripe account for reporting, tracking, integration, and of course, processing a payment.

This course demonstrates the included sample file from start to finish.  

You will see each aspect of CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) completed step by step for several Stripe modules, all working together to ultimately process a payment with one click in your FileMaker solution.

Also covered in this course are integration options and strategies for keeping all data synchronized between FileMaker and Stripe.

Even if you have worked with other APIs, this course will save you hours of time by visually seeing the exact process from start to finish instead of scouring through vague, confusing, or incomplete documentation.

While all APIs are very similar, they are also very different. Understanding the concepts for the Stripe API will be extremely helpful for any API process. Seeing a step by step process that points out the common pitfalls with specific examples will open a whole new world of possibility in solutions for you and your clients.

The course includes a free unlocked FileMaker sample app to give you a basic template to follow for tables, scripting and data flow.
