Stripe Reports with API

I want to create automation to download a monthly report from Stripe with the month’s transactions. As I see, these reports can be created and downloaded in CSV format via the Stripe API.
I’m new to this, and I would like if someone could guide me on what type of code I should use to achieve this.
Here you can see the Stripe API documentation that indicates how to make this call to create the report and then how to download it.

But I have doubts:

  1. In Make, do I have to make a call to Stripe using the HTTP module?
  2. Which one should I choose to be able to include my secret API key?
  3. What type of code should I use? Because in the Stripe documentation, I see Curl and others, but I’m not sure which one to really use.

You can use the Stripe universal module instead of HTTP.


Usually we will refer to the cURL version.

In Stripe’s case the Node version is not very useful because they are using an NPM library to abstract the HTTP request, so you need to go to the ACTUAL API reference by clicking on this link:

and it will display the available parameters you can send



Ok, that has become more or less clear to me, the problem is that I don’t know exactly how to translate that call and parameters that Stripe indicates to me and include it in the http module’s post call. I was doing something like this to Create the report, but it doesn’t work for me.

I must be entering the parameters incorrectly because it gives me an error that it does not receive the type of report that I am supposed to be specifying.

According to Stripe API Reference,

(the API) accepts form-encoded request bodies, returns JSON-encoded responses


So, you cannot send JSON as they expect the BODY of the HTTP request to be “Application/x-www-form-urlencoded”.

This is how you would do it


Thank you, that way I have managed to get it to work correctly!!
