    A public repo that will contain blogging material for my technical writing initiative

    In this tutorial, we have learned how you can add a payment collection feature to your application using the Stripe Charges API. We created a Node.js server and used the Stripe Charges API to create a payment gateway. We also learned how to test our payment gateway using Postman. Of course this a simple implementation, but you can extend it to create more robust payment system that would also take care of things like error handling and avoiding duplicate charges if a user accidentally tries to process the charge twice in a row. You can find the source code for this tutorial on this GitHub repo Thank you for reading! I hope you found this tutorial helpful. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out to me on LinkedIn. I would love to connect with you. See you next week!!
