Do you need to monetize LLMs, GPU time, or API requests? With OpenMeter's native Stripe integration, you can now bill from anything. We help to extract consumption data from your infrastructure, meter it on a scale, and synchronize usage to Stripe accurately without the need to write a single line of code.

With OpenMeter's native Stripe integration, you can quickly implement usage-based pricing for AI, API, and infrastructure consumptions like logs, Kubernetes, S3, and databases.

Who is this for?

Teams that want to implement usage-based billing and monetize their user's consumption like:

  • API Calls
  • LLMs token usage
  • GPU and CPU time
  • Number of messages (SMS, email, etc.)
  • Workflow and task executions

We eliminate the heavy lifting required to synchronize usage from external systems to Stripe billing reliably.

Getting Started: A Simple, Streamlined Process

Start billing from metered usage today in three simple steps:

Step 1: Start Metering with OpenMeter Cloud

Start metering with OpenMeter Cloud and navigate to the "Usage & Sync" menu. Here, you can select Stripe as your sync destination.

Step 2: Connect Stripe

Connect your Stripe account with OpenMeter. Once linked, choose the specific meter that's data you wish to synchronize with Stripe. You can also pick the start date and backfill historical usage.

Step 3: Map Stripe Customer IDs

Use our Subject Dashboard or one of our SDKs to map OpenMeter subjects to Stripe Customers.

const subject = await openmeter.subject.upsert([
  {
    key: 'customer-1',
    displayName: 'ACME',
    stripeCustomerId: 'cus_xxx',
  },
]);

Step 4: Enjoy Robust Synchronization

Congratulations! You've successfully set up synchronizing aggregated usage data to Stripe hourly. Our robust workflow engine ensures exactly-once delivery and provides the flexibility to backfill historical usage data.

The OpenMeter Advantage: Precision and Simplicity

By automating the data transfer and synchronization process, OpenMeter ensures that your billing is as precise as your metering. This integration empowers businesses to focus on their core offerings while relying on OpenMeter and Stripe for seamless, hassle-free billing solutions.
