[SOLVED] Stripe checkout autofill or disable customer name


I’m using stripe checkout. I already collect some userdata and I don’t want customers to fill in their name twice. How can I autofill or disable the name field?

enter image description here

const session = await stripe.checkout.sessions.create({
        customer_email: !customerFound ? data.email : undefined,
        customer: customerFound ? customer.id : undefined,
        customer_update: customerFound
          ? {
              address: 'auto',
              name: 'auto',
          : undefined,
        line_items: lineItems,
        client_reference_id: data.userId,
        payment_method_types: ['card', 'bancontact'],
        mode: 'payment',
        success_url: `${domain}/betaling-gelukt?session_id={CHECKOUT_SESSION_ID}`,
        cancel_url: `${domain}/betaling-mislukt`,
        locale: 'nl',
        billing_address_collection: 'auto',
        metadata: {
          reservation: data.reservatieId,


As per the documentation:

In payment mode, the customer’s most recent card payment method will be used to prefill the email, name, card details, and billing address on the Checkout page.

In subscription mode, the customer’s default payment method will be used if it’s a card, and otherwise the most recent card will be used. A valid billing address is required for Checkout to prefill the customer’s card details.

This may or may not be ideal for your situation.

Alternatively, you could completely cut out Stripe Checkout and use Stripe.js alongside the backend API that Stripe provides. This method has its pros/cons:


  • Total control over the elements and the flows of the elements
  • Customise/style elements to your own choosing


  • You have to create the backend and handle PaymentIntent and Subscription manually

We faced similar issues as yourself and though the initial change from Stripe Checkout to Stripe.js was a bit of learning curve it gave us much more control and allowed us to have payments without needing to redirect to an external site.

Note: I’ve intentionally left out code because the implementation of Stripe.js can vary based on your needs but if needed I can provide some examples.
