  • Access to the Stripe account containing the data you wish to replicate

Setup Guide


To authenticate the Stripe connector, you need to use a Stripe API key. Although you may use an existing key, we recommend that you create a new restricted key specifically for Airbyte and grant it Read privileges only. We also recommend granting Read privileges to all available permissions, and configuring the specific data you would like to replicate within Airbyte.

Step 1: Set up Stripe

  1. Log in to your Stripe account.
  2. In the top navigation bar, click Developers.
  3. In the top-left corner, click API keys.
  4. Click + Create restricted key.
  5. Choose a Key name, and select Read for all available permissions.
  6. Click Create key. You may be prompted to enter a confirmation code sent to your email address.

For more information on Stripe API Keys, see the Stripe documentation.

Step 2: Set up the Stripe source connector in Airbyte

  1. Log in to your Airbyte Cloud account or your Airbyte Open Source account.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Sources. In the top-right corner, click + New source.

  3. Find and select Stripe from the list of available sources.

  4. For Source name, enter a name to help you identify this source.

  5. For Account ID, enter your Stripe Account ID. This ID begins with acct_, and can be found in the top-right corner of your Stripe account settings page.

  6. For Secret Key, enter the restricted key you created for the connection.

  7. For Replication Start Date, use the provided datepicker or enter a UTC date and time programmatically in the format YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ssZ. The data added on and after this date will be replicated.

  8. (Optional) For Lookback Window, you may specify a number of days from the present day to reread data. This allows the connector to retrieve data that might have been updated after its initial creation, and is useful for handling any post-transaction adjustments. This applies only to streams that do not support event-based incremental syncs, please see the list below.

    • Leaving the Lookback Window at its default value of 0 means Airbyte will not re-export data after it has been synced.
    • Setting the Lookback Window to 1 means Airbyte will re-export data from the past day, capturing any changes made in the last 24 hours.
    • Setting the Lookback Window to 7 means Airbyte will re-export and capture any data changes within the last week.
  9. (Optional) For Data Request Window, you may specify the time window in days used by the connector when requesting data from the Stripe API. This window defines the span of time covered in each request, with larger values encompassing more days in a single request. Generally speaking, the lack of overhead from making fewer requests means a larger window is faster to sync. However, this also means the state of the sync will persist less frequently. If an issue occurs or the sync is interrupted, a larger window means more data will need to be resynced, potentially causing a delay in the overall process.

    For example, if you are replicating three years worth of data:

    • A Data Request Window of 365 days means Airbyte makes 3 requests, each for a year. This is generally faster but risks needing to resync up to a year's data if the sync is interrupted.
    • A Data Request Window of 30 days means 36 requests, each for a month. This may be slower but minimizes the amount of data that needs to be resynced if an issue occurs.

    If you are unsure of which value to use, we recommend leaving this setting at its default value of 365 days.

  10. Click Set up source and wait for the tests to complete.

Supported sync modes

The Stripe source connector supports the following sync modes:

  • Full Refresh
  • Incremental

Supported streams

The Stripe source connector supports the following streams:

Data type mapping

The Stripe API uses the same JSON Schema types that Airbyte uses internally (string, date-time, object, array, boolean, integer, and number), so no type conversions are performed for the Stripe connector.

Limitations & Troubleshooting

Expand to see details about Stripe connector limitations and troubleshooting.

Connector limitations

Rate limiting

The Stripe connector should not run into Stripe API limitations under normal usage. See Stripe Rate limits documentation. Create an issue if you see any rate limit issues that are not automatically retried successfully.


Stripe API Restriction on Events Data: Access to the events endpoint is guaranteed only for the last 30 days by Stripe. If you use the Full Refresh Overwrite sync, be aware that any events data older than 30 days will be deleted from your target destination and replaced with the data from the last 30 days only. Use an Append sync mode to ensure historical data is retained. Please be aware: this also means that any change older than 30 days will not be replicated using the incremental sync mode. If you want all your synced data to remain up to date, please set up your sync frequency to no more than 30 days.


Since the Stripe API does not allow querying objects which were updated since the last sync, the Stripe connector uses the Events API under the hood to implement incremental syncs and export data based on its update date. However, not all the entities are supported by the Events API, so the Stripe connector uses the created field or its analogue to query for new data in your Stripe account. These are the entities synced based on the date of creation:

  • Balance Transactions
  • Events
  • File Links
  • Files
  • Refunds
  • Setup Attempts
  • Shipping Rates

On the other hand, the following streams use the updated field value as a cursor:


updated is an artificial cursor field introduced by Airbyte for the Incremental sync option.

  • Application Fees
  • Application Fee Refunds
  • Authorizations
  • Bank Accounts
  • Cardholders
  • Cards
  • Charges
  • Checkout Sessions
  • Checkout Session Line Items (cursor field is checkout_session_updated)
  • Coupons
  • Credit Notes
  • Customer Balance Transactions
  • Customers
  • Disputes
  • Early Fraud Warnings
  • External Account Bank Accounts
  • External Account Cards
  • Invoice Items
  • Invoices
  • Payment Intents
  • Payouts
  • Promotion Codes
  • Persons
  • Plans
  • Prices
  • Products
  • Reviews
  • Setup Intents
  • Subscription Schedule
  • Subscriptions
  • Top Ups
  • Transactions
  • Transfers

Incremental deletes

The Stripe API also provides a way to implement incremental deletes for a limited number of streams:

  • Bank Accounts
  • Coupons
  • Customers
  • External Account Bank Accounts
  • External Account Cards
  • Invoices
  • Invoice Items
  • Persons
  • Plans
  • Prices
  • Products
  • Subscriptions

Each record is marked with is_deleted flag when the appropriate event happens upstream.
