Installments for Gravity Forms and Stripe

Description

Note: You MUST have Gravity Forms and the Official Stripe Add-On installed for this plugin to work.

Installments for Gravity Forms and Stripe allows you to set up installment payments or limited length subscription payments. Stripe itself does not have the option to auto-cancel, so we will do this through the plugin here.

To do this, set up your Stripe subscription feed like normal in Gravity Forms. Once your feed is created, you can optionally set a number of payments after which the subscription will be auto-canceled on the Stripe Installments tab of the Gravity Forms main settings page. To remove the auto-cancel condition from a Stripe feed, simply set the number of times to charge to 0 and then save your changes.

Use Cases

  • You want a subscription rate to be valid for one year only, so you charge $25 / month and auto-expire after 12 payments. You could then choose to let them resubscribe at a discount (or markup).
  • You have a more expensive offering, like a trip that costs $2000. You can offer the option for your customer to pay it off at a rate of $400 / month, for 5 months. (using a $400 monthly subscription that auto-cancels after 5 payments)

Features

  • Auto-cancels select Stripe subscription feeds on a per customer per feed basis after x times.
  • Can be enabled for any number of subscription feeds.
  • Sends an e-mail to the admin account detailing the feed name and the entry number of the customer once the total amount is payed and the account is cancelled.
  • Can be deactivated safely without affecting existing feeds (they just will not auto-cancel anymore).

Reviews

Works as expected!

This plugin allows you to turn Stripe subscriptions into payment plans/installments. We’ve tested it and it’s working as expected. Stripe subscriptions are canceled after x-amount of charges as setup in the plugin settings.

Thank you Dan!
