How to use the Square plugin

After configuring the Square parameters from Components > RSForm!Pro > Configuration > Square tab, all you need to do is to make sure that you're adding the dedicated payment fields in order to be properly redirected to the Square payment processor.

Making sure the form is sent to the payment processor

The payment details will only be sent to the Square payment processor if the user selects Square from the "Choose Payment" field before submitting the form.

The "Choose Payment" field is used in order to allow the users to choose their payment method. It displays the payment methods added to the form in either a Dropdown or Radio Group. It can be shown on the form (allowing the user to select his preferred payment method) or not (forcing the user to pay using the default payment method).

If you are using a single payment method and you need to hide the Choose payment field, this can be achieved by editing the field and setting to "No" the "Show in front-end?" option within the "Attributes" tab.

For the Square payment method to be available within the Choose payment field, the (Payment) Square field needs to be added in the form.

Adding costs

In order to receive funds using RSForm!Pro and Square payment plugin, your form needs to include a cost. In order to add costs to your form you can use any of the following fields:

  • Single Product - Adds a single product to the form. For this type of field you can set up a caption, description and a price.
  • Multiple Products - Adds the ability to display multiple products to be purchased either in a Dropdown or a Checkbox. Its items need to be specified in the following manner: price | label (ex: 15 | T-shirt)
  • Donation - Allows the user to type in the amount to be paid inside a standard Textbox.
  • Quantity - Allows the user to choose the amount of products (simple or multiple).
  • Total - This field is used alongside the Donation, Single and Multiple Products fields. It calculates the total price to be paid.

  • Fixed - In some cases with slower servers the Square webhook was resent multiple times causing duplicate emails to be sent.
