Setup payments on Registration form using Products [Payments Guide]

Hello RegistrationMagic users and enthusiasts!

Want to accept payments from your WordPress sites along with user registrations? You’ve come to the right place then. RegistrationMagic, already being the most acclaimed user registration plugin for WordPress, also allows you the flexibility to accept payments in addition to user account registrations. We have solely dedicated this guide to help users like you in setting up payments using RegistrationMagic. It is a simple three step process, described below. Follow along as we walk you through.

Step 1 – Payment Configuration

Before we do anything with the forms themselves, they will eventually be used to accept payments, we’ll have to enable Payments from RegistrationMagic’s Global Settings screen. To reach the Payments settings, just click on the Global Settings link under the RegistrationMagic dashboard menu. On the Global Settings screen, you will see many categories of settings. Find and click on the Payments link.

Global Settings for Payments

From the Payments settings screen, you are allowed to configure multiple payment processors. But for the purpose of this guide, we are going to setup only PayPal. Once you have understood the method for stetting up PayPal, you can setup any other payment processors in similar way. Moving forward, please enable the checkbox next to the PayPal logo…

…and click on the adjoining configure link as well. Clicking on this link will open up a popup box which will require you to add your PayPal email address and set whether you want to enable test payments or not. Test payments are useful if your site, or form, is still in development stage and not live to the public yet. You can also setup any checkout page styles from this popup that you may have created from your PayPal account. A detailed description of all the settings on this screen can be viewed from our Knowledgebase here.

Step 2 – Create Product

Next step after configuring the global Payments settings is creating a Product.

Forms, by themselves, only act as an interface to accept payments. It is Products that do all the heavy lifting backstage to make payments really work with the forms. Therefore, you’ll first have to create a Product and then add that Product to any form(s) of your choice using the ‘Add Product’ form field. Letting Products handle payments also decouples it from individual forms, the benefit of which being that you get to use one Product for payments in as many forms as you want, as many times as you want. Payment configuration will not remain bound to any particular form.

Enough talk, you say? Let’s get to the action then. Proceed ahead by clicking on the ‘Products’ menu item under the RegistrationMagic dashboard menu. This will lead you to the Products screen. If you have no products created already, the default message on this screen will tell you what you need to do.

No Products in List

Assuming you haven’t created any Products already, just go ahead and click on the ‘New Product’ link at the top, just underneath the Products heading. Next up, you will now see a screen that will allow you to create a new Product. Use the help-texts on the right of each setting to know more about them. A detailed description of all the settings on this screen can be viewed from our Knowledgebase here.

Create New Product

After adding all the required details, click on the Save button to create the new Product. It will now appear in the all Products list.

Step 3 – Add Product to Form

After going through Steps 1 & 2, you must be fired up to accept payments from your RegistrationMagic forms. Well, keep your enthusiasm high as we are going to go through this last step fairly quickly. All you need to do is just add a new field to the form of your choice. To do this…

  • Click on the ‘Fields’ link at the bottom of the form card from the all forms screen.

Form Card

  • Click on the ‘Add Field’ link that’s just beneath the ‘Fields Manager’ heading.

Add Field Link

  • Select the field as ‘Add Product’ field.

Add Field Popup

  • Choose the Product you just created and click on the ‘Add to Form’ button.

New Field Product
The payment will now show up on the form once you publish it live using the form’s shortcode. You can also preview it on the front-end by clicking on the ‘Preview’ link on the Fields Manager screen.

Step 4 – Add Variable Quantities and Total Price to Form

This step is optional. If you are interested in following two features, follow this article: How to Add Variable Quantities and Total Price to Registration Form Payments

  • Allow customers to choose ‘Variable Quantities’ for your Product fields
  • Display ‘Total Price’ at the bottom of your form

    Hey Team,

    Just a quick question, when testing this if they stopped the payment process, the user is still created in WordPress.
    This means that users created here are able to access areas without payment.
    Is there a way to force payments, or only create a WordPress user once payment has been verified?

    Thanks in advance,

    1. rmagic

      Yes there is a way to force payment – please reach out to support team for help.

  4. Ademir

    When testing payments using Paypal Sandbox, after finishing payment, will the form inbox show the payment completed symbol (green card)? Thanks

  5. Doug

    When using PayPal payment option, my users are getting a shipping charge of $3.95 by default when they are routed to to finish the transaction. I want to eliminate this. Is this a setting in this plug-in or PayPal??


    1. rmagic

      Hi Doug,
      Yes, thats possible, you can try through our Stripe extension (there are other payment gateways integration too). Please reach out to support if you have further questions – much easier to support through ticketing system.

    Hi There,
    I am trying to use PAYPAL as payment method although, for my clients to pay, they have to have an account in PayPal or create an account, I have another website that I actually developed using .NET, and I use Paypal as well buy it gives me the option to add or use a credit card if the client does not have Paypal account… is there a way to do that with RegistrationMagic?

    1. rmagic

      Yes, its possible. You have to enable PayPal Express through PayPal dashboard. Or, you can purchase PayPal website solution that will allow you to accept user card on your site (using PayPal payment processor). Note that this feature has to do nothing with RegistrationMagic, its just how you configure your PayPal. PayPal Express option is not available in few countries.

  8. Chiara

    I wanted to know if at the end of the purchase of a virtual product at the deadline no longer gives access to the site?

    1. RegistrationMagic Staff

      Could you please explain how registrations are linked up with product pricing setup?

  9. Maribel

    How do I set a maximum number for a product?

    1. RegistrationMagic Staff

      Currently there’s no option to set limit for the maximum number of products. You may use custom JS on front end fields to limit the count.

      1. Jennifer Smith

        Can you point us to exactly how this can be done? I was going to recommend purchasing the Premium version to my client until I realized there was no way to limit the number of products or registrations, which seems like an obvious feature to have – and critical for them.

        Any chance this might be added in the near future?

        1. RegistrationMagic Staff

          To limit submissions on a form please follow the steps below:
          1. Go to RegistrationMagic > form dashboard
          2. Click on Limits
          3. Select “Limit Submissions” and configure as desired.
          4. Save when done.

          Unfortunately, it’s not possible to limit products on the form. We have noted your requirement and forwarded it to the management team for review and possible inclusion in the future updates.

    does RegistrationMagic offer PayPal-Plus as a payment option, or is it just the standard PayPal Checkout ?

    kind regards,

    1. RegistrationMagic Staff

      Hello, currently we do not have PayPal-Plus. As of now, PayPal is integrated with RegistrationMagic.

      You can use a fixed product in the standard version of RegistrationMagic. The other product types i.e multi-select, drop down and user-defined are available in the premium version of RegistrationMagic.
