I’ve been able to take Credit Card/Visa payments via Paypal for a while now and more recently via Stripe in conjunction with my invoicing system Zoho but over the last week or so I’ve properly and fully implemented credit card payments on this WordPress based website. On my payment page below you’ll notice a full credit card payment system that processes your payment immediately on this site. The payment page also has a an SSL cert for increased security.
What you’ll need to achieve the same is:
- A Free Stripe account
- A self-hosted WordPress installation
- The WordPress Gravity Forms Plugin
- The WordPress Gravity Forms + Stripe Plugin
- * An SSL Cert
* Stripe requires an SSL cert/Secure payment page to work.
So my Stripe Payment page takes credit card details, processes them on submission and returns the user to a thank you page. Both Gravity forms and Stripe can be configured to send an acknowledgement email/receipt to the user and site owner.
No more paying a pile of money to bank merchant or credit card processing companies!
Here’s some details on Stripe transaction fees.
I can help install the system on your own WordPress based website if you need. A standalone Payment Page/Virtual Terminal like mine here can also be installed on any non WordPress based site also..
