In testing mode when I create a new customer and tries for payment, i got this error.


Customer cus_7Zz2BCnybIZLGw does not have a linked card with ID
tok_17Kp8GAwLkQPB7OqrrM73VVI


Im using card number : 4242424242424242
exp_month :12
exp_year 2016

The return response is,

Array
(
[charge_status] =>
[error_info] => Array
(
[type] => invalid_request_error
[message] => Customer cus_7Zz2BCnybIZLGw does not have a linked card with ID tok_17Kp8GAwLkQPB7OqrrM73VVI.
[param] => card
[code] => missing
)

[message] => Customer cus_7Zz2BCnybIZLGw does not have a linked card with ID tok_17Kp8GAwLkQPB7OqrrM73VVI.
)


Input Charge Data is,

$customer = Stripe_Customer::create(array(
'account_balance' => 100,
'source' => $token,
'email' => strip_tags(trim($email))
)
);

$customer_id = $customer->id;

$charge = array(
'card' => 4242424242424242,
'amount' => 100,
'currency' => 'cad',
'receipt_email' => test@test.com,
'description' => 'my payment',
'customer' => $customer_id
);

Answer

There are three different ways to create a charge:

  • with the source parameter only. In this case, source needs to be a token ID (created by Checkout or Stripe.js), i.e. a string that starts with tok_.

  • with the customer parameter only. In this case, customer needs to be a customer ID, i.e. a string that starts with cus_. The customer's default card will be charged.

  • with both the customer and source parameters. In this case, customer needs to be a customer ID as in the previous case, but source should be a card ID, i.e. a string that starts with card_. The card object should belong to the customer.

In your case, you're passing a token ID in the source parameter along with a customer ID in the customer parameter.

If this is a new card, you should first use the token to create a card on the customer, then create the charge with the card ID. If the card was already saved for this customer, then you don't need to collect the card information again (and thus don't need to create a token at all).
