Connect to Stripe

Learn how to connect your Stripe account to Retool.

You can connect to your Stripe account and make it available as a resource in Retool. Once complete, your users can write queries that interact with Stripe data.


All users for Retool organizations on Free or Team plans have global Edit permissions and can add, edit, and remove resources. If your organization manages user permissions for resources, you must be a member of a group with Edit all permissions.

To create a Stripe resource, you need:

  • Your Stripe API key.

Stripe API authentication

Retool authenticates with Stripe using a secret or restricted API key.

1. Create a Stripe resource

Retool can connect to almost any API or database, and has built-in integrations for popular data sources. Sign in to your Retool organization and create a new Stripe resource from the Resources tab.

2. Configure the resource

Specify a name and location for the Stripe resource. Retool displays the resource name and type in query editors to help users identify them. Next, configure the required settings.

Configure settings

Click Test Connection to verify that Retool can connect to Stripe. If the test fails, check the resource settings and try again. Testing a connection only checks whether Retool can successfully connect to the resource. It cannot check whether the provided credentials have sufficient privileges or can perform every supported action.

3. Save the resource

Click Create resource to complete the setup. You can then click either Create app to immediately start building a Retool app or Back to resources to return to the list of resources.
