How to create products and prices

You can now create a product and the associated price(s) at the same time in your Dashboard. Below is a demo of the latest Product Editor, but you can also create product & prices directly when creating or updating subscriptions or invoices via the Dashboard or API.

Creating products and prices using the Dashboard

Hint: you can hover over info icon for helpful tips.

Add a price to your product

Once the product has been defined, you now need to create associated prices

  1. Select your pricing model:

    1. Standard: use this if you charge the same price for each unit. This can be for recurring or one time prices.

    2. Package: use this if you charge by the package, or a group of units. For example, if you charge $25 for every 5 units. This can be for recurring or one time prices.

    3. Graduated: use graduated pricing tiers that may result in a different price for some units in an order. For example, you might charge $10.00 per unit for the first 100 units and then $5.00 per unit for the next 50. Today, this is only available for recurring prices.

    4. Volume: use if you charge the same price for each unit based on the total number of units sold. For example, you might charge $10.00 per unit for 50 units, and $7.00 per unit for 100 units. Today, this is only available for recurring prices.

For more examples and details on how to do this via the API, see https://stripe.com/docs/billing/subscriptions/examples.

  1. Fill the details matching your pricing model (one-time VS recurring, Tiers, Billing period)

  2. You can also open the Advanced options to add a Price description (optional) for internal tracking purposes

You can add additional Prices for that same product from the same page. This could be useful if you want to offer the same Product in a different currency or with a different interval (for example, yearly vs. monthly.

You can also choose to archive or delete your product if it is no longer active. We recommend archiving and not deleting, as to make sure you preserve historical information. Once deleted, you will not be able to recover any information about the product.

You can use the Copy to live mode button at the top right to copy your product from test mode to live mode when you're ready.

Edit a price

If the price has already been used, you can only edit the description and the trial period of a Price. For prices that have not been used, you can edit pricing structure as needed:
