This article will teach you how to set up a subscription product in Stripe. After reading this, you'll be able to sell that Stripe subscription product or payment plan to your UpScale clients.

Why you would need this

If you are using Stripe as your payment gateway and wish to set up a subscription product or payment plan for your clients in UpScale, you will need to follow this setup.


Step 1 Create Your Subscription Plan In Stripe
  • Log into your Stripe Dashboard
  • Click "Billing" in your left menu bar.

  • In the top right, click "New" to add your new plan.


  • Enter a Product Name (This will be used in your Stripe Dashboard and on customers' receipts or invoices.)
  • Enter a Unit Label (This will appear on the customer's receipts and invoices)
  • Enter a Statement Descriptor (This will appear on a customers' bank statements, so make sure it's clearly recognizable.)
  • Click on Create Product.


  • Enter a Plan Nickname (This won't be visible to customers, but will help you find this plan in your Stripe Dashboard)
