Collecting payments

Are payments supported internationally?

Yes, we support any country that Stripe does, including the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and the European Union. For additional information, please see https://stripe.com/global. The checkout widget will always display your product’s price in whatever currency you’ve set within Stripe.

Which payment processors are supported?

At this time, all payments are handled by Stripe. We may add integrations with other payment services in the future. We welcome suggestions for payment services through our ideas portal here.

Can I test my checkout form?

The best way to test our your checkout form is to purchase your product and then process a refund for yourself. At this time, we do not access your Stripe account’s test database. 

Can I collect payments using Leadpages on my website?

Yes, there are a few ways that you can process transactions on your site—provided you have an SSL certificate for your domain. In other words, your site’s domain must use https:// instead of http://. Otherwise, Stripe will not accept the transaction. Check with your webhost or domain registrar to learn about options for securing your site (if you don’t have an SSL certificate). 

If your site does have an SSL certificate, you can use any of our main publishing options except for custom domain mapping. Standalone Drag & Drop Leadboxes also support the payment widget, so you can process transactions in a popup modal on your website. 

Product setup

How do I sell multiple products?

You can sell a single SKU from any one checkout form, such an ebook. To sell multiple products, you can set up additional checkout forms. 

For example, if you’re selling registration spots for two different event dates, you could add two buttons to your page and connect each to a Leadbox with a payment form.

We plan on adding the ability to sell multiple products from the same form in a future update. 

Can I charge customers on a recurring basis?

At this time, our checkout widget only supports one-time transactions. However, we plan to add support for Stripe subscriptions in a future update. 

My product isn’t in the checkout widget drop-down… what should I do?

Here are some steps you can take if your product doesn’t appear within Leadpages:

  1. If you’ve recently made changes in Stripe, refresh in Leadpages to make sure you’re getting the latest data.
  2. Make sure your product has at least one SKU and is set to Active status.
  3. Configure your product so that it’s not marked as “shippable”.

Form customization

Can I customize my checkout form’s fields or buy button?

Default payment fields are configured to provide a clear purchasing experience, and are not customizable. 

Your button will always display cost information directly from Stripe, so your customers know exactly how much they’re spending. To edit the text before your product’s price, simply click into the button and type.

What information can I collect from customers?

Your checkout form will include default fields to process transactions, but you can add more fields by connecting another integration. Just like our opt-in forms, your integration determines which fields you can add.

Note that your customers’ email address will get sent to all integrations you set up. Payment details will only be sent to Stripe, while additional fields will only be sent to your other integration(s). 

Transaction follow-up

How can I deliver a product to customers once they make a purchase?

Depending on your product, there are a few ways to handle fulfillment. For digital products (such as ebooks, videos, etc.) you can add a lead magnet to your payment form—just as you would with an email opt-in form. You can check out a detailed guide here: How To Send a Lead Magnet. The lead magnet will only get sent once someone has submitted the checkout form.

Or, if you’ve added another integration to your checkout widget (such as a CRM or email service provider), you might look into their options for sending digital products automatically. 

We don’t recommend selling physical products via the checkout widget for now. That said, if you add address fields to your form, they’ll become accessible in the CSV export for your page, and in whichever other service you’ve integrated with. Keep in mind, we do not provide services for handling tax, shipping, or logistics involved with delivering physical products. 

In any case, make sure your product is not setup as “Shippable” in Stripe. Only non-shippable products are available to use with the checkout widget.

What can I do if a customer requests a refund?

Our checkout widget is only designed to process an initial transaction. To issue refunds, you’ll need to go through Stripe. For instructions, please check out “How do I issue refunds?” from Stripe’s support site.

Why was a customer’s purchase declined?

Transactions can fail for a variety of reasons. If a charge doesn’t go through, we’ll display error messaging from Stripe on your payment form. You can also investigate failed charges in your Stripe account. Learn more about declined charges in their helpful guide here: Why was a customer’s charge declined?

Will my customers receive a receipt for their purchase?

Yes, we pass your customers’ email address to Stripe so they can send a receipt. To learn more about email receipts, check out Does Stripe offer email receipts?
