Here’s how you Integrate WPForms with Stripe (In 3 easy Steps): 

Get WPForms Plugin + Your Gloves

Stripe is the best online processing solution in the market today (and it’s really easy to start collecting recurring payments for your services, coaching classes, consulting sessions, etc). Setting up with Stripe (if it’s available in your country) is fairly simple and straightforward. I am assuming that you already have a Stripe account. Next thing you need is the WPForms Stripe Addon (Available for their Pro and Ultimate License). 

With WPForms (and their improved UI) you can easily create forms for recurring services or events. You’ll also get to see the recurring payment icon that appears next to any form entry that is now collecting regular payment (along with recurring payment entries look in the WordPress dashboard, so you can continue to manage payments with ease.)

So, now when you create your forms with WPForms with Stripe Integration (Add-on),  you’ll also get to set up conditional logic; setup recurring time periods (days, weeks, months, years); enable you to capture your customer email so Stripe can create a customer profile, and finally set up whether the payments are one-time or recurring payments.

By using conditional logic, you’ll let your customers choose if they want to start with a one-time payment or a recurring payment. Your conditional logic setting with WPForms will trigger recurring payment functionality when your customer selects that option on your payment form.
