Why Accepts Payments on Your WordPress?
You might be asking yourself why payment functionality is important to have on your WordPress forms. Well, when it comes to generating revenue, forming solid relationships with long-term customers is the key to your success.
Whether you have an online donation form, a user registration form to access locked content, or a simple order form that sells physical or even digital products, WPForms has you covered if you want to accept payments.
So, let’s take a look at how to enable payment functionality on your WordPress forms using WPForms and Stripe or Paypal.
Step 1: Create a New WordPress Form
The first thing you’ll need to do is install and activate the WPForms plugin.
WPForms allows you to accept payments on your forms using Stripe and Paypal. That’s why the next step is to install and activate one of them.
To do this, go to WPForms » Addon and find the one labeled Stripe addon/Paypal addon.
Next, go to WPForms » Add New to create a new form.
For example, you can create a Billing/Order Forms just like this:
Step 2: Customize Your WordPress Form Fields
You can add additional fields to your form by dragging them from the left-hand panel to the right-hand panel.
Then, click on the field to make any changes. You can also click on a form field and drag it to rearrange the order on your donation form.
In order to accept payments using Stripe or Paypal, you’ll have to add at the very least these two form fields for your form to work right:
- An items field such as Single Item, Multiple Items, or Dropdown Items
- A Credit Card field
You can also add a Total form field so customers know exactly how much they’re being charged when they submit your form.
When your form looks the way you want it to, click Save.
Step 3: Configure Your Payment Settings
When your form is ready, go to Payments » Stripe/Paypal to configure the payment settings so your form can accept payments from people using Payment Gateway.
Next, click the checkbox labeled Enable one of the payments, give your payment a description, and select Email as the Payment Receipt.
