Order Form Basics

November 26, 2021

Services, such as Square, PayPal, Stripe, BlueSnap, Authorize.net, etc., allow you to collect payments from your websites. What they don’t provide is integrated order forms where you can ask any kind of questions to your customer.

For example, if you’re selling a service, you’d want customers to enter details about their industry, needs, interests, etc. We help you set up payment integrated forms in minutes using a simple wizard.

Example use cases using order forms:

  • Get donations for your cause.
  • Sell products directly from your website.
  • Get recurring payments for memberships/services.
  • Sell registrations like concerts, seminars, special events.
  • Sell e-books, PDF reports, white papers on a landing page.

Things to Know Before Using Payment Integrations

  1. First, you need to create or have an account with the payment processor you’re about to use.
  2. Some payment gateways, such as PayPal Personal, do not allow collecting credit card information on your own page, so your forms will simply redirect users to these sites to complete payments.
  3. Compare the options — other good options could be PayJunction, 2checkout, or Worldpay.
