API overview

The Stripe API is organized around REST. Our API has predictable resource-oriented URLs, accepts JSON-encoded request bodies, returns JSON-encoded responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes, authentication, and verbs.

API limitations

There's currently a limit of 10.000 on each bulk insertion. Please conform to this principle to avoid a 422 unprocessable entity response.

Before you start

Here are a few things to know before you start.

You need to have an account at Make in order to be able access resources from our API. If you don't have an account yet, you can sign up for a free demo over on our homepage.


To authenticate and authorize API calls we use Basic HTTP Authentication. Under the API Settings section of your Make account you can find credentials needed for that authentications. Userid should be used as a username, and APIKey as a password.
