Setting Up the Stripe Add-On

The Stripe settings layout was modified in Stripe Add-On version 2.8. For setting up older versions, refer to this article.


Stripe Settings

The Stripe Settings will allow you to connect and authenticate with your Stripe account and make some choices about how you collect payment information. Additionally, it will allow you to setup webhooks which are used to communicate events from Stripe back to your Gravity Forms environment.

Navigate to your Stripe Add-On Settings page:

  1. Log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
  2. On the left side navigation menu, hover over Forms and click on Settings.
  3. Click the Stripe tab.


Mode specifies the environment you want to connect your form submissions to. Choosing Live will connect you to the environment that initiates real transactions, while Test will run the form entry into your Stripe test environment for review, but no actual charging will occur.

For full instructions on how to connect to a live or test environment, review the process described in this help guide.
