New Feature! Accept Payments in your Surveys with FluidSurveys
Have you ever built a survey with FluidSurveys that was just so awesome, that you believed you should be charging people money just for the wonderous privelege of completing it?
Well, now you can!
Use the new Payment Question Type to collect payments directly from your surveys whenever you need to! With a few creative twists, you can use this question type to create an online ticket sales site, an online conference registration page, or request donations for your cause!
Compatibility & Availability
The new Payment Question Type integrates with your existing PayPal account to accept payments from survey respondents, and is available on the Ultra and Enterprise plans from FluidSurveys.
How to Use it
You will find the new Payment Question Type in the Advanced Questions section in FluidSurveys:
Simply click & drag it onto your survey. Next, look at the Options tab and locate the sub-section entitled “Options” …
Click on it to expand & configure the Payment question:
Here’s a breakdown of each option…
Un-ticking this box will make your Payment Question mandatory.
Select your currency from this drop-down menu.
How much money do you want to collect from your respondent?
Select the company of the online account you will be transferring the payment to. Currently, the payment question only supports PayPal.
By selecting “PayPal” you will have these options to configure:
Input the e-mail address that will receive the payment.
The PDT token is a bunch of gobbledy-gook that you receive from PayPal after you configure your account to work with an external website or app like FluidSurveys. Here’s how you do it:
Log into your PayPal account and click on Profile.
Click on My Selling Tools.
In the Website Preferences row, click Update.
(1) Make sure Auto Return is set to On. (2) In the Return URL field, type http://fluidsurveys.com, and (2) turn on Payment Data Transfer (PDT).
Save your changes and PayPal will give you a PDT token (blurred in this picture for privacy reasons).
Once PayPal provides you with this long string of characters, simply copy it and paste it into the proper field in FluidSurveys.
Start Collecting Money Now!
That’s it! Now go enjoy this new question type!
