Update Customer in Stripe using Laravel Cashier

Published on June 6th, 2019.

It's been over a year since I wrote this article so some of the information might be a little out of date.

I've just had the situation where I needed to setup my Laravel app to update my customer's information in Stripe when they change it in my app.

The method I used to do this is actually undocumented on the official Laravel Cashier documentation, I found it while I was looking through the Cashier code.

In my Settings controller I used the following code to update the customer's name and email when they resubmit the settings form.

$stripeData = array(
    'name' => $user->first_name . ' ' . $user->last_name,
    'email' => $user->email


That code should work as long as the User model has the Billable trait.
