Stripe Form Integration: #

For integrating Stripe payment onto your forms, you will be required to use the Payment fields section of the Everest form builder.

Payment Fields: #

Single item #

Set the price on a single item. You can customize it even further by changing its features. Choose between 3 different Item types to fit your payment forms better:

  • Pre defined: If the item type is set to pre-defined, the form users will not be able to change the price of the item on the frontend.
  • User defined: If the item type is set to user defined, users will be allowed to set a set price for the payment straight from the frontend. This option works great for donation and charity purposes.
  • Hidden: If the item type is set to be hidden, the price will not be displayed on the frontend and the item’s set price will be used as the product’s price directly. U

Multiple choice #

With the Multiple choice field, you can set various options for users to choose from. You can also set the price on each field, change their name and even change the order of the choice options by simply using drag and drop.

Checkbox #

The Checkbox field also exists to provide users with multiple options but unlike Multiple choices, users can choose between different items as well. This allows your users to buy multiple items at the same time. If they want to.

Similar to multiple choices, you can also set the name and order for each of the fields and set a flat price for all of the items available.

Total #

The Total field simply exists to automatically calculate the total price of all the items selected on your form. This way, you can integrate various checkboxes, multiple option fields, and single item fields and ensure that your customer doesn’t lose track of the final expenses.

Credit Card #

After you Enable Stripe in the Form Settings, the Payment Fields shows a new field i.e. the Credit Card field for stripe.

To set Stripe as the payment method for your form just drag-and-drop the Credit Card field to your Form. And it is that simple!
