Select price from Stripe
When you set up a new subscription or payment plan, Checkout Page automatically creates a new price for you on Stripe. This price mirrors the settings from Checkout Page and bills your customers accordingly.
If you are an existing Stripe user and have already set up a number of products on Stripe, you can easily reuse one of your existing payment plans or subscriptions by selecting a price from Stripe.
This way you can keep your Stripe account organized, subscribing your customers to the same plan you have already been using and reuse the same price across multiple checkouts.

You can view your subscription customers on the Subscriptions page.
From your dashboard, navigate to Payments and then Subscriptions to view all your subscribers and their status.
Here you will see the plan a customer has subscribed to and any other information they provided at checkout.
You can click on each subscription to manage it. This will allow you to open the subscription in the Stripe dashboard, where you can make any changes if needed.
From your Checkouts page, click on Payments next to your checkout and view Analytics.
Here you will see the statistics for your subscription, like the total number of subscriptions, volume, visits and referrals.
Subscription management for customers
Your customers can manage their subscriptions in your customer portal.
They receive a link to your portal in the payment confirmation email.
To see the link to your customer portal, open Settings from your dashboard and click on the Customer portal.
A customer can access your customer portal by filling in their email address. They will then receive an email with a link that provides access to the portal for 20 minutes.
