Wondering how to connect stripe with your payment form?
Then you are in the right place.
In this post, we have explained how to connect stripe with your payment form in 3 easy steps.
How to Connect Stripe with Your Payment Form
Stripe is the popular payment processor that is widely used by all digital nomads.
By default, WordPress does not have the option to accept payments. But there are many plugins using which you can accept payments.
WPForms is a popular form builder using which you can create different types of forms.
By combining these two platforms, you can build a powerful website for your business.
Let us see how to connect stripe with your payment forms on WordPress site.
Install and Activate the WPForms
First, you need to set up the WPForms plugin on your website.
You need the pro license of WPForms to use the Stripe addon.
Once you have purchased the license, go to Settings under WPForms and verify the license key.
Then click on addons options to select the Stripe addon.
Click on the Install button to get it activated.
Connect Stripe to Your WordPress Website
You need to connect Stripe to your website once the addon is activated.
Follow the steps below to connect stripe:
Click on the Settings page on WPForms and choose the Payments tab.
Choose the currency from the drop-down menu.
Then click on “Connect with Stripe” to proceed further.
You need to give the authorization to collect payments using Stripe.
Once the authorization is completed, you will be back in the admin section on your WordPress website.
Adding Stripe to Your Payment Forms
After adding Stripe to your WordPress site, you need to connect Stripe to your payment form.
There are two ways you can do that:
- You can add a new payment form
- Edit an existing payment form
If you add a new payment form, you need to create it from scratch.
For your form to work with Stripe, you need to have at least two fields in your form:
- An item field (Single Item, Multiple Items, Checkbox Items, or Dropdown Items)
- Stripe Credit Card field
After creating a payment form successfully, you need to configure the payment settings.
Follow the steps below to configure payment settings on your form.
- Go to the Payment >>Stripe, and from the Stripe panel, check the Enable Stripe payments.
- Enter a short payment description.
- Select the email field under the payment section to send a receipt.
- If you want to accept recurring payment from people, enable “recurring subscription payments”.
Once you enable recurring payments, you will see some additional settings appear below.
- Plan Name – Enter the title that you want to appear for the subscription which will be displayed in the Stripe transaction.
- Recurring Period – Choose the recurring payments time (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Half-Yearly, or Yearly.)
- Customer Email – Select an email field from your form where clients can be contacted.
You can make your form more powerful by enabling conditional logic.
Click on the Save button at the top right corner once you are done and exit the form builder.
You can embed the form to a post or page using the shortcode or by using the WPForms Gutenberg block.
When someone sends payments on your form, it will be sent to your Stripe account and then moved to the bank account after processing is done.
WPForms has a feature called Form entries using which you can view all the entries from the specific form within the dashboard of your WordPress site.
If you open a single form, you will be able to see the detailed report as shown in the image above.
That’s all about how to connect Stripe with your payment form easily.
