4.1 Conclusion

To wrap things up, let's briefly review what we've covered and talk about what could be improved. My name is Jason Lewis and from all of us here at Envato Tuts+, thanks for watching.

4.1 Conclusion

Throughout this course we've taken a pretty good look at the inner workings of Stripe and more importantly, the Cashier component. By now you should have a good idea understanding of how it works. How we can use Cashier to make payments, create new subscriptions, adjust subscription quantities, apply coupons, cancel subscriptions, and generate and download invoices. Of course, that's not all there is to it, and you might find yourself wondering about how you can take it to the next level. Well, there's a few things that you can do. First, take the time to really dig into the Stripe PHP SDK. Why? Because Cashier can't and it won't do everything. Cashier is able to handle quite complex subscriptions. However, if you need some serious customization or just something complex that's beyond the capabilities of Cashier, you may need to use the SDK directly. And that's not a problem, so don't think that you're doing something wrong. Cashier is meant to to help with bootstrapping, but that's not to say that it isn't a permanent solution. It's up to you to know when you need to start implementing custom logic and libraries to achieve your goals. Aside from these few things, you can also dig deeper into Cashier itself. We did touch on most of the important aspects of the component, but there's always those hidden gems within a library that you need to find. Reading through the source of a library like Cashier is a great way to learn and further your knowledge. All in all, we've covered quite a bit in a short amount of time. We didn't spend too much time on making things look nice. Instead, we focused on how things worked. I hope you've enjoyed this course. My name is Jason Lewis, and thanks for watching.
