[resolved] Signup with Payment?? (2 posts)

    From what I've been reading over the last 30 minutes, this plugin looks perfect for my client's needs. They want to provide a way for softball players to signup for their league on their site and require extensive fields to be filled out.

    My question is, can this plugin work with one of the fields being able to take payment? Basically, when a player signs up, they need to pay $XX before signing up. Is there a way to do this with say PayPal or Stripe or some other processor?

    I would like to use Stripe, and thanks to this plugin http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-stripe/ it says either by template insert or short code. Can your plugin and this plugin work together to provide a way for people to pay before signing up?

    The two plugins aren't going to work together without some code developed for that purpose. You need two things that have to be coded: setting up the registration so that it both creates a new record and sends the user to the payment portal with the checkout information. This usually requires Javascript because you're essentially submitting a form to two places at once.

    Then, once the transaction is complete, you'll need some way to store the payment confirmation. This is usually done with a "listener" script that gets the information directly from the payment portal.

    If you don't need to automate the process, you can do it all manually without much coding, you just put a payment button on the "thanks" page and then when someone pays, you manually update their record to show they've paid.
