Payment/Subscription/User Registration

  1. Hi,
    I would like to know if a system is possible.

    I want to create a system.

    User registration (paid + recurring every year) ---> paid options to be selected and details filled out in the form.

    Can this be done?

  2. The User Registration Add-On can be used to register users. It can also integrate with the PayPal Add-On to charge for registrations. So I don't see why not. We also have other payment gateway solutions in the works with Authorize.Net being the next, then PayPal Pro.

  4. How is going to depend on what exactly you are trying to do.

    If you are using a form to create a new user on your site you would at a minimum add a Single Text input field to your form and give it a field label of Username. You'd then add a Password field to your form and an Email field.

    Then you would use the User Registration Add-On to create a User Registration Feed for this form. Configure the User Registration settings you want to use from the available options and map the fields on your form to the available user registration fields using this Add-On.

    Now if you want to integrate PayPal...

    You would add Pricing Fields to your form. PayPal uses Pricing Fields for the information on what you are selling. You must add at least one Product Field to your form. There are a variety of field types for the Product Field depending on what you want to do (Single Product, Radio Button, Drop Down and User Defined Price).

    If your Product has options then you can add an Option Field to your form and it to has it's own options. Be sure to add a Total Field to your form also so the Total is displayed.

    Now use the PayPal Add-On to configure a PayPal Feed for this form. First go to the PayPal Settings page that will appear in the Gravity Forms Settings page when the PayPal Add-On is activated and confirm that you have configured IPN by following the directions on that page.

    After setting up IPN go to PayPal under the Forms navigation and add a new PayPal Feed. Configure the options for the PayPal Feed.

    One of the options on the PayPal feed will be related to the User Registration Add-On *IF* you have also configured a User Registration Feed for that form. You'll be able to configure it so that the user is only created after payment is received and what happens if it's a subscription and it is canceled. Then save the feed.

    Submit the form. If you set it up properly then the form will submit, redirect you to PayPal to complete the purchase and afterwards the user will be registered.

    I'm not sure what else you need as far as an explanation as that pretty much sums it up.
