If not done so already, first make sure that your GlobalPatron account has been linked with your bank account. How do I link my bank account with my forms, to be able to collect payments online (With Stripe)
After you have your GlobalPatron account linked with your bank account, you can start receiving payments securely on any forms you create. The steps to create your own online payment form are below.
- Create a new form, of any style you prefer, from this page:
- After you have added all of the fields you are interested in collecting in your payment form, click on the "Payments" icon in the right menu bar
- This will popup a window asking for details about the payment that your customers will see in their bank statement, and which field it is on the form that contains the "total payment amount" that the customer will be paying. This must be a field that has a valid "numeric" value in it. E.g. "100" is a valid payment amount, but "100 dollars" is an invalid payment amount because its not a number. The field on your form which contains the total payment amount can be either:
a) A field with a preset value: e.g.
i) A "number" field with a preset price in it, that you have made readonly or hidden
ii) A droplist of options with numeric values assigned to its values.
b) A number field where the user types in the price themselves.
c) Or alternatively for more advanced scenarios, use a "calculated" field so that the price can be dynamically calculated based on an equation and values of multiple fields.
- Your form is now ready to securely receive payments online, with funds being deposited into your bank account.
- To get a link to the form, to share with your customers, or to embed the form within your website, click on the "Share" navigation item near the top of the page.
