In this article, you'll learn how to add payment options to new or existing forms and used with events for event registrations.

Things to know

  • Depending on your plan, you may have limited access to form tools. Learn more about what is included in each plan on our Pricing Page.

  • Web forms can be added to your website Powered by Locable through the webpage, blog post, or events directly. For websites on other platforms, you can use the Javascript or iFrame embed codes.

  • All form submissions are recorded in the integrated CRM and associated with the user who submitted the form (based on their email address). Existing users will be updated with the submission activity

Adding payments to a form requires you to link your Locable account with Stripe as the credit card processor and will only work on pages loaded securely over https. Notably, Locable never charges added fees for any transactions and, thus, you only pay merchant fees to Stripe.

A Note on Paid Event Registration (Ticketing)

Forms can be paired with events to enable you to collect and track event registration, learn more about using forms for event registration here.

Charging attendees or "selling tickets" is a great use case (note, Locable does not generate printable tickets however a PDF may be used as part of a Form Action).
