I’ve been busy implementing a subscription service for one of my projects. As it’s using Laravel I’ve been able to use Cashier for much of the scaffolding around Stripe payments.
In order to create a new subscription plan with Cashier, you would use:
However, if you have a user set up already with a default card (Eg, from a separated payment methods page). By removing the
$stripeToken parameter Cashier/Stripe will create a subscription for the user using the user’s default card as payment.
This is a nice little conveniency that isn’t documented, saving you the hassle of asking for the user’s card details again when taking payment.
