Fluent Forms Dynamic Payment Summary

Having payment options in WordPress can let your users an opportunity to pay you for the service you provide. WooCommerce is not a preferred solution when you don’t have a big store, and want to sell only a few items. That’s where an advanced form builder like Fluent Forms come into play.

With Fluent Forms, you can build powerful forms in various needs and customize them with your choice. Furthermore, you can create order forms where users can purchase what you sell with the right payment method.

In this post, I’ll show you first how to create a dynamic payment summary in Fluent Forms and then what more you can do with Fluent Forms. Let’s dive into the form creation process.

Start creating beautiful forms with Fluent Forms now. It’s lightweight, feature-rich, and beginner-friendly.

Which fields we’re going to use

To create this order form with a dynamic payment summary, we’ll be using a bunch of form fields.

  • Name and email address
  • Form step (this is a must)
  • Dynamic shortcodes
  • Custom HTML

One more thing I’d like to disclose. You can add as many fields as you need beyond the simple fields I’ve used. If you want to show dynamic value after several segmentations, please use form steps to initiate the separation. Fluent Forms has multiple dynamic shortcodes. You can use them on other forms too. Lastly, we’ll use the Custom HTML field to add personalized text on each step.

How to add a dynamic payment summary in Fluent Forms

First, go to Fluent Forms and click Add a New Form. From there choose a blank form.

Now start adding all the input fields you want. I’m gonna add name, email, and payment field.

In the next part, we’ll add the Form Step because the dynamic payment summary works only when using multi-step forms.

Now, work with form steps. Go to the customization and select Steps under Progress Indicator.

Let’s customize the payment field. We’ll choose the Product Display Type as Radio Selection. Add a few options under Payment Items with the right price.

We can also add a few items as add-ons to get extra earnings. And we’ll display them with checkboxes as these items are optional.

We’ll define a payment method now. Fluent Forms has five payment methods including Stripe and PayPal. You can display all or the ones you like.

Come to your Step setting again. Here we’ll give each step a title that will make our forms more organized.

Before making the final decision, we’ll want to let our customers review the whole payment. Add another Step to this part. Now add a Custom HTML field. You can see some shortcodes available under the editor. We’re gonna add {dynamic.payment_summary} at this point.

The dynamic input value is a smart way to make your form more interactive. We can also add more steps to show a summary done on the previous step. First, we’ll do the name field. Click on it go to Name Attribute from Advanced Options.

Now come to the Custom HTML again, and add the attribute after dynamic so it will be {dynamic.names}. We’ll also add some text to make it more personalized.

We can make our Submit Button dynamic by adding the {payment_total} so that users know what’s they are gonna pay.

One last thing we’ll do is customizing the text message after form submission. So, our users will know that their order is confirmed.

Here’s the final look of the form we’ve created.
