Step by step guide on Stripe Payment Gateway Integration
The 123ContactForm – Stripe payment integration provides an extremely easy way to collect payments with your online order form. The best thing about Stripe is that it doesn’t require a merchant account. Funds go directly into your bank account and Stripe’s fee at successful payments is of 2.9% + 30¢, with no other setup or monthly fees.
Stripe is primarily aimed for developers, but 123ContactForm is here to help non-developers out. Like any other of our payment integrations, the integration with Stripe requires just authentication data that allows the applications to communicate. Your order form with Stripe payment integration can be set up in minutes!
The steps below will take you through the simple process of creating your Stripe payment form:
- Build your order form! Create it in the Form Editor and assign prices in the Settings → Payments section. Offer multiple items for sale by setting prices for choice fields options or set a fixed price per submission.
- In the Settings → Payments section, under Payment Processors, select Stripe as your payment processor from Payment gateway and hit Add payment gateway. Next, click on the Connect with Stripe button.
- Provide your Stripe email and password to allow the two applications to communicate.
- Back to the Settings → Payments section of your 123ContactForm account, click Save at page top and tick the select enable on the top right of the payment gateway box. If you want to use recurring billing, tick the option Use recurrent payment and add the necessary data.
If the Reference ID is enabled on your online form, you’ll also find it in your Stripe account, in the Transactions → Payments section, under Description. You may use this workaround to track your transactions.
Note that the minimum recurrence period for Stripe is of one month and that, since Stripe is currently available in the USA and in Canada, the only currency available is USD/CAD, GBP and EUR.
Now sit back and let the payments begin!
