Stripe connect issues

Fatumata Jalloh asked in Rails

I am currently working on integrating stripe connect to my app but it isn't working. I don't get any errors when I run it and it asks me to create an account and redirects back to the website but when I check my stripe dashboard, it doesn't show any added accounts. Any help would be appreciated! I looked over their documentation and copied that but I got the same results.

Here is some of my code:

class StripeController < ApplicationController
def connect
response ="",
query: {
client_secret: ENV["STRIPE_SECRET_KEY"],
code: params[:code],
grant_type: "authorization_code"

   if response.parsed_response.key?("error")
       redirect_to welcome_path,
       notice: response.parsed_response["error_description"]
       stripe_user_id = response.stripe_user_id
       current_user.stripe_user_id = stripe_user_id
       redirect_to mypage_path,
       notice: 'User successfully connected with Stripe!'

module UsersHelper
def stripe_button_link
stripe_url = ""
redirect_uri = stripe_connect_url
client_id = ENV["STRIPE_CLIENT_ID"]


<% if current_user.stripe_user_id %>
<%= link_to "Go to Stripe Dashboard", stripe_dashboard_path( %>
<% else %>
<%= link_to image_tag("ConnectwithStripe.png", width:"120px", height:"40px"), stripe_button_link %>
<% end %>

Stripe recommends using AccountLink instead of OAuth. It's a bit easier and supports both Express and Standard accounts.

Check out the docs for that here:

thank you !
Using accountLink, how would I be able to connect this back to the current user? Would I still be able to do current_user.stripe_user_id?

Yep, you will:

  1. Create an account with Stripe::Account.create()
  2. Save the account ID to your user
  3. Create an AccountLink so the user can be onboarded.
