New features in a nutshell
Payment is one of the most suggested features of Fluent Forms. To getting paid for event registration, buying products, and many other reasons, a form needs a payment system. Now you can make your forms more powerful.
Here, I’ll discuss briefly what this feature does and how to use it. For more details, you can visit the documentation and start playing with the new features immediately!
Don’t forget to update the core plugin along with the Pro upgrade, or you may face some difficulties using the new features.
Stripe Payment Integration
The Stripe payment integration is a super-exciting feature that allows entrepreneurs to collect payments from different sources. With this integration, users can make payments by their credit cards. It offers a great opportunity to accept payment for your products and services.
When a customer submits a form, Stripe will approve payment from credit cards, flawlessly. Sell products and services without any complication because Stripe has a straightforward pricing model with a cutting-edge payment system.
Moreover, when users submit a new post, it can be created if the payment is accepted. Similarly, user registration can also be conditional with the required payment.
How to use
Using the Stripe integration for Fluent Forms, you need to sign up for Stripe if you don’t have an account already. Your site must be on SSL because of the security of credit cards. If you already have a Stripe account, copy the Publishable Key and Secret Key and paste them in the WP Fluent Forms Stripe settings panel.
Connecting Fluent Forms with your Stripe account and taking payments is really easy. For a better understanding of the whole process, visit the documentation page.
PayPal Payment Integration
Fluent Forms payment also supports another super-awesome payment solution – PayPal. With this wonderful integration, people don’t need to go to PayPal to make a payment because Fluent Forms will process that automatically.
When a form is submitted, the credit card payment will be processed seamlessly. Selling products and services is now more comfortable because of the PayPal integration along with its incredible features.
That’s not it. As Fluent Forms already commanded with user registration and advanced post creation, there will be some unique features applicable for payments too. Without a payment is accepted, no registration or post will be created.
How to use
This integration needs some basic requirements to operate correctly. You need a PayPal Pro account, SSL for your website, and PCI compliance. For a detailed tutorial, visit the documentation here.

When it comes to spam protection, Fluent Forms deserves some kudos. Besides its other anti-spam solutions (reCAPTCHA and Honeypot), it’s now introducing Akismet, the famous spam filtering plugin by Automattic.
Fluent Forms Akismet integration allows to secure your forms and fight against spambots. Akismet has its own system for testing comments and pingbacks on your WordPress website.
The plugin has both a free and premium version. You might have to spend a little to enjoy the top-class features like advanced stats. However, Fluent Forms now gives you more reasons to trust the WordPress form plugin as it’s becoming more robust every day.
