Terminal JS ES Module

Use the Terminal JS SDK as an ES module.

Note: This package dynamically loads the Stripe Terminal SDK from https://js.stripe.com and wraps the SDK's globalStripeTerminal function. To be PCI compliant, you must load the SDK directly from https://js.stripe.com by using this library. You cannot include the dynamically loaded code in a bundle or host it yourself.

npm version


Use npm or yarn to install the Terminal JS module:

> npm install @stripe/terminal-js
> yarn add @stripe/terminal-js



This function returns a Promise that resolves with a newly created StripeTerminal object once the Terminal JS SDK has loaded. If necessary, it will load the SDK for you by inserting the Terminal JS script tag. If you call loadStripeTerminal in a server environment it will resolve to null.

import {loadStripeTerminal} from '@stripe/terminal-js';
const StripeTerminal = await loadStripeTerminal();
const terminal = StripeTerminal.create({
  onFetchConnectionToken: async () => {

For more information on how to use the Terminal JS SDK once it loads, please refer to the Terminal JS SDK API reference or follow our getting started guide.

TypeScript support

This package includes TypeScript declarations for the Terminal JS SDK. We support projects using TypeScript versions >= 3.1.

Some methods in Terminal JS SDK accept and return objects from the Stripe API. The type declarations in @stripe/terminal-js for these objects in currently track to version 2018-08-23 of the Stripe API. If you have code using other versions of the Stripe API you may have to override type definitions as necessary.

Note that we may release new minor and patch versions of @stripe/terminal-js with small but backwards-incompatible fixes to the type declarations. These changes will not affect the Terminal JS SDK itself.

Ensuring the Terminal JS SDK is available everywhere

By default, this module will insert a <script> tag that loads the Terminal JS SDK from https://js.stripe.com. This happens as a side effect immediately upon importing this module.

Import as a side effect

Import @stripe/terminal-js as a side effect in code that will be included throughout your site (e.g. your root module). This will make sure the Terminal JS SDk script tag is inserted immediately upon page load.

import '@stripe/terminal-js';

Manually include the script tag

Manually add the Stripe.js script tag to the <head> of each page on your site. If an existing script tag is already present, this module will not insert a new one. When you call loadStripeTerminal, it will use the existing script tag.

<!-- Somewhere in your site's <head> -->
<script src="https://js.stripe.com/terminal/v1/" async></script>

Importing loadStripeTerminal without side effects

If you would like to use loadStripeTerminal in your application, but defer loading the Terminal JS SDK script until loadStripeTerminal is first called, use the alternative @stripe/terminal-js/pure import path:

import {loadStripeTerminal} from '@stripe/terminal-js/pure';

// Terminal SDK will not be loaded until `loadStripeTerminal` is called
