[Stripe] filter customers by country.

A few days ago, I launched with two tools.

One of them shows your revenue source by country from Stripe.

The question:

As a Stripe customer, do you ever need to filter customers by country?

Thanks for your answers.

Good question! It's nice to know where everyone is coming from, but maybe for parity deals? Or to push marketing content that can attract people from certain countries?

Thanks. I like your points. Now I’m not sure if I can find a market for that 😁

I need to identify customers per country for accounting purposes but I use a custom script for this task. It's quite straightforward using their API. Aside from that, I would never share my Stripe production key with a third-party tool, even if it's read-only.

Yeah, now I’m thinking that a lot of people will not share their API keys. Thanks for the answer.

Could you allow them to connect their account via OAuth/Stripe Connect? Or do an actual Stripe App?

Actual Stripe App sounds nice. I didn’t know that such apps even exist. Thanks)

You can have them generate a restricted API key which only allows access to certain things afaik. It's how works.

That might be a workaround for sharing a full access secret key which no one in their right mind would do 😅

That’s exactly how I did. There is a link for generating a key with only the necessary read-only permissions.
