I would like to send the financial type to stripe as a metadata.

The API instructions are here: https://stripe.com/blog/adding-context-with-metadata

I just don't know where to modify Stripe extension to add this functionnality.


  • We've done this for other bits of information to Stripe - we have a routine which updates things on a schedule to make it easier for financial reconciliation. I'll ask one of the team to add a link to a git repo with the work. Jan 13, 2020 at 22:14

You could start a feature request on the Stripe-CiviCRM project page on Github, and ask for guidance there.

  • Hi Francis - that's definitively the way to go Stripe! Jul 5, 2016 at 12:59

I’m also wanting to do this.

Could it be possible to use the alterPaymentProcessorParams hook to add metadata to the Stripe request?
