How to Create an Online Form With Stripe

Are you looking to streamline your online payment forms? With FormSmarts Stripe integration, accepting credit cards and collecting fees has never been easier.

To get started, simply follow these steps:

  1. Add fees to your form: Include the description, amount, and currency of each fee directly on your form. Check out our quick three-minute video tutorial for guidance. If you’ve used our popular PayPal integration, the format is the same.
  2. Integrate with Stripe: Edit your form and navigate to the Submit Actions tab in the Form Builder. Select Integrate with Stripe as shown on the screenshot below, and save your changes.
