UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: TypeError: Cannot read property 'amount' of undefined

I am working on wiring up the ExpressJS part of a Stripe payment system. I wanted to pass some properties dynamically, such as amount and description.

I have these three different components that represent the products: <SunnySampler />, <Grasses />, and <HalfPound />.

In them I pass the amount and description props like so: <Grasses amount={1500} description="Tray" />.

Then on my StripCheckout component I pass the amount and description from the props given to the above components. And I also pass the amount and description to the handleToken function:

import React, { Component } from "react";
import StripeCheckout from "react-stripe-checkout";
import { connect } from "react-redux";
import * as actions from "../actions";

class SunnySampler extends Component {
  render() {
    return (
          name='Microurb Farms'
          token={(token) =>

export default connect(null, actions)(SunnySampler);

This is what my action creator looks like:

export const handleToken = (token, amount, description) => async (dispatch) => {
  const res = await axios.post("/api/stripe", { token, amount, description });

  dispatch({ type: FETCH_USER, payload: res.data });

So that was the client side, now in on the server side I have a billingRoute.js file that looks like this:

const keys = require("../config/keys");
const stripe = require("stripe")(keys.stripeSecretKey);

module.exports = (app) => {
  app.post("/api/stripe", async (req, res) => {
    // const token = req.body.data.token;
    const amount = req.body.data.amount;
    const description = req.body.data.description;
    const charge = await stripe.charges.create({
      amount: amount,
      currency: "usd",
      description: description,
      source: req.body.id,


Unfortunately, I am getting the following error in terminal:

(node:99567) UnhandledPromiseRejectionWarning: TypeError: Cannot read
property ‘amount’ of undefined [0] at

I thought maybe token, amount and description needed to be passed as properties to the data object inside the action creator but that gives me a syntax error.
