Kentico Xperience 13 is packed with modern technology to deliver great website experiences - namely ASP.NET Core - enabling customers to use the latest that .NET has to offer. But, it also includes some older technology, like jQuery, that has been required to use all of the platform's features. In this Refresh, we're making jQuery optional so you can part ways with it if you have your own JavaScript solutions for the live site.

Matthew Sandstrom    —       —    Knowledge Base Article

The first article covered setting up the Admin interface and the class library used for the live site. The second article covered the Web API endpoint used to accept webhook messages form Stripe.

The last article will focus on the process of getting funds from orders that use delayed capture, implementing a helper class and an event handler to serve this purpose.

Building an Integration (Stripe) - Part 2 - Web API Controllers

Matthew Sandstrom    —       —    Knowledge Base Article

This article series covers the planning and implementation of the Stripe payment gateway implementation.

The previous article covered the process of creating necessary settings categories and keys, adding resource strings to the Xperience admin app, and adding Stripe Checkout to the live site.

The admin library of this integration has two main tasks to accomplish. First, it needs to accept webhook requests from Stripe and update Xperience orders appropriately. Second, it needs to capture funds for payments using delayed capture.

This article will focus on the first part, which is one of the most vital to the integration. With the live site code alone, orders can be paid for through stripe, but there is no way to automatically propagate that information back to Kentico. Store staff would have to manually keep track of orders and update them according to data in Stripe. We’ll create an endpoint so that Stripe webhooks can automatically keep our Xperience orders up to date.
