WPForms is my first choice when it comes to creating amazing WordPress forms, Also I think they are the best alternative to Google Forms.
There are a lot of reasons I consider WPForms as the best WordPress Form Builder Plugin. Some of them are their easy to use interface, a ton of features like conversational form, survey forms and the flexibility to add payment options as well.
They are a complete package, you don’t have to install multiple plugins for different features. Recently, They also added payment addons like Stripe & Paypal. With these new features, you can easily connect Stripe with your payment forms. They have over a million active installations and the users are growing.
This amazing tool is owned by the team owned by the founder of famous WordPress blog WPBeginner i.e Syed Balkhi. They come up with amazing addons to make things simple for users like us.
Stripe is one of the most popular payment processors for digital entrepreneurs. So, I’ll be guiding you today on how you can connect Stripe with your payment forms in WordPress.
