Strange Stripe error message

One of my users could not use Stripe checkout on my website and received the following strange error message:

Stripe error: Search is not supported on api version 2020-03-02. Update your API version, or set the API Version of this request to 2020-08-27 or greater.

I have never seen this before.

Does anyone know what the issue is and how I can resolve it?

Any help would be appreciated!

The error says it all. Go to plugin page, find stripe and check the version dropdown and if possible choose a newer version there.


Stripe plugin is on the most updated version (V3) so can’t be that.

Then, that’s interesting. I did some search and could find out that the search requires you send another header info (Search | Stripe Documentation):

Of course, if you are using stripe directly from the plugin and in workflows, I don’t know if there is a place to send API version along with the request. What workflow action do you get this error? Do you know?


Is this is a non-Bubble Stripe plugin?

It is very odd.

I am simply using the ‘charge a user’ workflow action.

It has always worked correctly and perfectly, but that particular user encountered that strange error message.

No, its the Bubble Stripe plugin. Updated to V3.

Bubble has what I have seen referred to as a “deep integration” with Stripe. This is what allows the “current user” to display Stripe API information when calling it within expressions.

If a “document certification” failed for a particular user (shown as part of the error message in your post) … this may be about something wrong for that user within this custom implementation (meaning … the Bubble/Stripe native integration).

Definitely an instance to contact Bubble Support on.

If you decide to contact them, please do share with us what you find out. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info!

I have contacted Bubble and Stripe to query this so I will let you know what they say!

It is now affecting other users too, reporting same

I’m getting the same error here! My stripe plug in is also up to date (v3). I have submitted the issue to Stripe but I haven’t heard back from them yet

Found the solution guys.

Go to your Stripe developer account.

Scroll to bottom where it says versions.

You’ll see a button saying Upgrade available….




Thank you!! This made my day!

No worries, needed to be sorted!

I had the same issue and that fixed it. Thank youuuuuu!

Did Stripe give anyone a heads up first? Also, what happens if I don’t have a developer account. I received the same message from a client as they were trying to make payment. Embarrassing.

No heads up from Stripe but it’s likely because it’s an integration issue and not directly a product issue. I would suggest requesting access to the developer account if you don’t already have access. It’s a quick fix once you upgrade / update.

@jddmrgn thank you this.

Thank you!
