In this tutorial I’ll walk you through how to create a basic form for collecting recurring monthly (could also be daily, weekly, or yearly) payments using the Gravity Forms Stripe Add-On.
- Gravity Forms Pro or Elite License
- Gravity Forms Stripe Add-On
- Stripe.com Account
Note: I will not be covering how to setup your Stripe.com account.
Setting Up The Gravity Forms Stripe Add-On
I will not be covering how to setting up the Stripe Add-On in this tutorial. I have already covered that in great detail in this tutorial: Setting Up the Gravity Forms Stripe Add-on
Building Your Form
You can add as many fields as you need when building your form. In this demo I will be showing you how to build a basic form with the required fields for this to work.
Note: For this to work, you will need an email field, Pricing field and the Stripe Card field, all other fields are optional.

Now that your form is built out, you will need to setup a Stripe Feed. The feed is what connects your form to the Stripe API to handle the actual processing of payments and passing the customer data over to your Stripe account.

Testing Your Form
It is important that you test your form before inviting the world to start using it.
This video will show you how the form works and walk you through how to check that your subscriptions were successfully created in your Stripe account.
The Wrap Up
