We are pleased to announce that both Web-form-buddy and Web-store-buddy now support Stripe for web form card payments and Stripe for shopping cart card payments.

Stripe allows you to accept payments by credit card in a way that your customers will find very easy to use. To get started, you will first need to get a Stripe account. There are no setup fees, and the transaction charges are low.

Details of Stripe pricing are here: https://stripe.com/pricing

Once you have your Stripe account, log in to your control panel, follow the simple instructions to “connect” your account, and you’re good to go!


With Web-form-buddy you can defend against form spam in several ways – by rigorous field validation, by using the “confirmation” option, and by choosing one of several different anti-spam CAPTCHA tests.

We are pleased to announce that Web-form-buddy is now using this latest form of Google’s reCaptcha. If you have enabled this option, there is no need to make any changes as the upgrade is seamless.
