Accepting credit cards

We’ve been getting questions about training and when the next event will be held. This is pretty cool to us, and something we wanted to offer to customers.

So we setup a simple page to explain the event, got a space reserved and started with a simple form to accept registrations:

Soon after, we needed this front-end to send registrations to a list of people. So obviously we hooked it up to our product Kinetic Task – and started sending signups to our CRM solution “SalesForce” using a pre-built handler.

The form had an option for people to “bill later” but we really wanted to start taking credit cards. So then we downloaded and added the Stripe handler.

Then, after creating a stripe account, all we needed to do was add some Javascript to the front-end form and send the charges to checkout with stripe! The end-result is quite striking – and a great experience:

Training coming in September

It’s gorgeous in Minnesota. Come join us at one of the newest hotels near the Mall of America for a three day training event.

It’s difficult to plan training. Who will come? What do they need?

So we’ve setup a couple different tracks focused on Forms and Workflow development along with a day of time to apply what you’ve learned and work with our teams directly.

Sound like your kind of gig?
