Therefore, it will be easy for you to collect payments and donations from your visitors. All you need to have is a Stripe account and a WPform license. Stripe addon is available with pro and ultimate licenses only. With the two essentials, all you need to do is enter your Stripe account key and add a credit card field in your form.
Let’s get started with the three steps on connecting your Stripe account with your payment form.
Step 1: Install and Activate WPforms Plugin and Addon
You need to install and activate the WPforms plugin in your WordPress web site if you have not installed it. If you have installed, you will need to purchase a WPForms license, either the pro or ultimate package, for you to access Stripe Addon. When you get the license, go to WPforms settings to verify your license.
After verifying, go to WPForms then to Addons page and select Stripe Addon and install. The Addon will automatically activate after installation is complete.
Step 2: Connect Stripe to Your WordPress Website.
Once the Stripe Addon is activated, go to WPForms settings on your WordPress web site and click on the payment tab. You can change the currency form that you want to receive payment from here before proceeding (optional), in default settings, you will receive order in the form of dollars, and then scroll down to Stripe section.
From this section, click on Connect with Stripe, button, you will be required to authorize the connection between your Stripe account and your form. After licensing, you will be redirected to the admin area where you should find the connection status checked.
Step 3: Add Stripe to Your Payment Form and Customize
After connecting Stripe with your WordPress web site, the last step is to add it to your form. You can add Stripe to a current payment form, or you can create a new payment form.
Note that for your form to work with Stripe, you have to have two fields in your form, that is, the item field either as a single item, multiple items, checkbox item, or dropdown item, and Stripe credit card field. If you are creating a new payment form, your form should consist of name, email address, item, total (optional), and Stripe credit card fields.
Once you have your form done, head on to payment then to Stripe and check the Enable Stripe Payment box from Stripe panel. After enabling strip payments, you can enter a short payment description that will appear on the user’s credit card statement after payment.
Under Stripe Payment Receipt, choose the email field where Stripe will send a payment receipt. And click the Save button if you want your users to submit a one-time payment.
If you intend to receive a recurring payment, continue to the subscription section on the setting panel and check the Enable Recurring Subscription Payment box. On enabling recurring subscriptions, the additional setting will show up. You will be required to fill in more details. Here are the fields that you will need to fill
- Plan Name: Enter the subscription title. The name that you will enter shall appear during the transaction.
- Recurring Period: In this section, you will choose the frequency that the payment should occur, that is, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-year, or yearly.
- Customer Email: Here, you are needed to select the email field where the customer will be contacted.
After filling all the recurring subscription payment fields, click on the Save button.
You can also proceed to set up Conditional Logic for payment. However, this section is optional. Conditional Logic is a setting that allows you to build a form that automatically changes the form based on the user’s selection. Conditional Logic lets your users choose whether to pay using Stripe or any other online payment processor such as PayPal. It also allows your users to decide whether to submit a one-time or recurring payment.
To set up a Conditional Logic subscription, check the box named Enable Conditional Logic on the subscription section. An additional field will appear where you will set up a conditional rule. You can set the conditional rule as; Process Payment as Recurring if Payment Type is Quarterly. The form will automatically set the payment as recurring if the user selects to submit recurring payment, and the user will be charged the appropriate amount after every three months. Remember to click on the Save button when done.
After saving the changes, your form will be ready for use, and you can exit the form builder. When your users send payment or donations, the cash will be sent to your Stripe account then to your bank account. However, it is advisable to test the functionality of your form before launching it. The reason for testing is to ensure that everything is set and is as per your wish.
By following these three steps, you will connect your Stripe account with your website and start selling your products and services at ease. Also, your customers will have a hassle-free experience doing business with you.
