How to add Cash App to your website
There are only three simple steps to add Cash App to a website on WordPress.
⚠️ Before we jump in, make sure that you have the Formidable Forms on your WordPress site. If you need help installing and activating the plugin, this guide to getting started in Formidable takes you through it step by step.
Got Formidable? Good, let’s get started!
Step 1: Install and activate the Formidable Forms WordPress Stripe Plugin
From your WordPress dashboard, head to Formidable → Add-Ons.
Search for the WordPress Stripe payments plugin, then click Install and Activate.
Step 2: Connect your website to Stripe
To connect your site to Stripe, head to Formidable → Global Settings → Stripe in WordPress.
Choose whether to use Stripe in test mode or as a live site, then click Connect to Stripe. We recommend starting out in test mode to ensure everything’s working right before it’s out there on the internet! ?
☝️ If you try test mode, note that you'll need to come back to this page later to turn it off and link your site to Live Stripe.
Next, it asks you to enter your email address to log into your Stripe account. If you don’t have one yet, you can create an account on the spot.
It does take a few minutes, but all you have to do is follow the instructions on your screen.
Step 3: Activate Cash App payments in Stripe
From your Stripe dashboard, click the gear icon ⚙️ in the upper right corner to access your account settings.
Select Payment Methods to view the Stripe payment options available in your country.
Don’t see the list? Pick your platform (Formidable Forms) from the dropdown menu, and it’ll magically appear! ?
Scroll through the list of payment methods until you reach the Wallets section. Then Turn On Cash App.
And now we can say so long to Stripe! ?
Time to return to WordPress to add a Cash App link to your website.
Step 4: Create a Cash App payment form
Back on your WordPress dashboard, go to Formidable Forms → Forms → Add New to make a new form.
Next, click to create a payment form from scratch by selecting Blank Form or use the Credit Card Payment form template to save time.
After you give your form a name, it’s time to build your custom payment form. All you have to do is click and drag!
Make your way over to the form field tab on the left side of your screen, select a field, and drag it into your form on the right. Easy, isn’t it? ?
When you enable Cash App payments, an email field will automatically be added to your payment form. But you can also add additional fields such as phone number, address, and more.
And don’t forget to add a Payment field to your form if you aren’t using our payment form template. ?
