What does all this tell you? Simple. Subscription businesses are here to stay.
If you are a freelancer, consultant, coach, an individual service provider, a webshop, an agency, or if you sell services, selling your offerings with a recurring model only makes sense.
Here’s how you Integrate WPForms with Stripe (In 3 easy Steps):
Get The Accounts, Plugins, & 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.)

WPForms has also made it fairly simple now to check out all the important links, Customer ID, transaction ID, Entry ID and more right inside your Interface.
If you already have a WPForms Pro or Ultimate License, you should see the settings for the Add-on. The recurring payment options should be visible right within the form builder (under Payments > Stripe).
Set up Recurring Payments
The settings in the form builder have changed as well, to help make it easier for you while also allowing you to use the“conditional logic” feature within WPForms.
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.
Set up The Created WPForms On Your WordPress Pages
- Created your Stripe account or Integrated Stripe with WPforms

In some cases, within your forms, you’ll probably need a way to have your clients or customers upload files (such as logos or other files).
In that case,
