Your WordPress forms especially WPForms serve the purpose of a great visitor-to-customer conversion tool. But WPForms on their own might not be the equation to success.
The important factor that an online business entrepreneur needs to address is the different modes of payment methods available out there. I mean there are a ton of those, ranging from PayPal to Bitcoin.
However, one payment method is tried and tested over time and is a personal favourite of many potential customers. To be more precise a huge portion of your potential customers might turn you down if you do not offer PayPal as a payment option.
PayPal has made overseas fund transfers such a piece of cake that their popularity is such a decisive factor in the success of your business.
The good news to all those online entrepreneurs out there is that a multitude of WordPress plugins exist solely to integrate PayPal payment.
But a simple and straightaway payment option will yield less results compared to a neatly laid out form and at the very end a payment option that includes PayPal.
This is a mix that can guarantee a conversion 98% of time, provided you sell good stuff.
So then today we are going to take a look at how to integrate a WPForms form with a PayPal payment add-on.
WPForms have been serving WordPress website owners for a long period now. Their success is mainly because of the assurance in quality. So is the case with WPForms PayPal add-on.
The creation of a form and adding a PayPal add-on.
The prerequisites for this add-on is nothing but WPForms plugin. If WPForms plugin is already installed the next step is to either edit an existing form or create a new one.
Let’s start from a clean sheet right let’s create a new form.
Once the form has been created, let’s say on a billing template (you can choose the template of your choice as PayPal requires only one field that is the items field),
then the next important step is to add a total field.
This is helpful in many ways because it increases the overall authenticity and user friendliness. Please note here that PayPal doesn’t necessarily need you to add a total cost field, it is however important that you add one yourself so that there is a point to memorize.
Adding PayPal payments to the form
Once the form is complete the next step is to connect it to your PayPal account.
To do this keep the form builder open and then navigate to Payment>>PayPal Standard.
On this menu you will find a checkbox alongside the option Enable Standard PayPal Payments. Enable it by clicking the checkbox.
Post this step some additional info must be added to ensure that the payment comes to your own account.
- Your PayPal email address where you will receive your payments.
- Then you can choose between two modes. Production or Test/Sandbox.
- There is the need for filling out the type of payment you are receiving. It is either Products and Services or Donation.
- This is an important option. The Cancel URL. The Cancel URL directs your customer to a landing page when they cancel a payment and makes sure that they have successfully cancelled the payment.
- In case of a physical product you can add a Shipping address onto your filed.
The entire process of integrating a fund receival add-on is as simple as that thanks to WPForms.
WPForms have been serving the industry quite well for a long time now. It naturally implies that the worries regarding safety and the bug-free performance are unnecessary because the provider is obviously WPForms.
