    Hi guys, 

    I currently offer an online academy via Teachery.com. I'd like to just host that academy on my own website. I see that you all allow subscription options now for the forms. 

    Can you please talk through with me how I could manage an online academy, subscription based, via my Wix website? 

    I would love it if you could walk me through this so that if a member's card didn't go through or if they canceled, they would no longer have access to the academy. 

    Thanks much,

    Diane

    Hello Diane - First, you need to decide which payment gateway to use. Here's a complete list of all payment processors we integrate with: https://apps.jotform.com/category/payment_processing

    If all you need is some sort of Payment Authorization (e.g. charge your users at a later date), then your choices would be limited to Stripe, Paypal or Authorize.net.

    In case you're not sure which one will work for you, I recommend reading this article: Which-Payment-Processor-is-Right-for-Your-Business 

    Once you're decided on which one to use, setup your payment field by following our guide on How-to-Setup-a-Recurring-Payment-Option.

    Now, for the Wix part, this was covered in the detailed guide I'm linking below. All our guides are well documented and accompanied with screenshots so please give these a shot and let us know if you see any issues along the way. You can always open separate threads for different questions/topics.

    I would love it if you could walk me through this so that if a member's card didn't go through or if they canceled, they would no longer have access to the academy.

    This part I'm afraid has to be done from your website's backend. AFAIK, you can't access the actual backend codes in a Wix-powered website but it offers a members-only page. You should take advantage of this feature (although this is now beyond our scope of support). To help you out, here's an article I found online from their support pages.
