cURL and Stripe issue

Hey folks


I'm trying to integrate Stripe for taking payments using their API and cURL in FM16. It's kind of working but there's one issue. If I send a string, say description, then in the response I only get the first word before there's a space in the string.


In the script step these are the values being used:

URL: ""

cURL: This is actually pointing at a field that contains the following:

-u sk_test_BQokikJOvBiI2HlWgH4olfQ2: \

-d amount=2000 \

-d currency=usd \

-d capture=true \

-d description=Order Number 258490 \


There's actually more cURL options being sent but they're not relevant for the issue being looked at here. The response that I get from Stripe is this (again partial):

  "id": "ch_1Bb8o92eZvKYlo2Ci3vLz58Q",

  "object": "charge",

  "amount": 2000,

  "amount_refunded": 0,

  "application": null,

  "application_fee": null,

  "balance_transaction": "txn_1Bb8o92eZvKYlo2CW1Xnuzvy",

  "captured": true,

  "created": 1513781073,

  "currency": "usd",

  "customer": null,

  "description": "Order",


Note how the last line only contains "Order" and the rest of what was sent is not there.


I've tried putting the value in quotes like this: -d description="Order Number 258490" \

And I end up with this: "description": "\"Order",


Anyone got any ideas on what this is about and how to fix?


Many thanks
