Stripe customer and subscription ID's

Hey,

I’ve seen some bubblers add news field in the User to store the customer id and the subscription id.

Why aren’t you using the built in Current User’s Stripe Customer ID and Current User’s Stripe Customer subscription's Subscription ID?

Is there any benefit in storing this as fields?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile: :computer:

I do it because the built in fields

  1. Only exist if the Bubble plugin is installed
  2. Cannot be programmatically managed outside the Bubble Stripe plugin

Thanks, @eli,

What do you mean by this?

Meaning it’s impossible to update the Stripe Customer ID, etc by ‘making changes to the user’.

That’s true.

In what cases would you need to update the Stripe Customer ID?

Anyone?
