A mongoose.js A mongoose plugin that creates a stripe customer when a new document is created and stores the Stripe customer ID to that document.

Use Case

If you are running an ecommerce type application using Stripe and create your own customer/user database objects, as well as Stripe customer objects, use this plugin to simultaneously aggregate your customer information to Stripe when a new customer is created within your database.

This plugin is configurable to allow enough flexibility to work with various schema setups. Just provide the names of your fields such as email or phone and the plugin will map those over to Stripe meta data objects.


npm install --save mongoose-stripe-customers
