Next, click on the Payment tab. Here is where you’ll need to enter the price amount and choose the digital wallet options you want to offer.
For Cash App Pay and Alipay digital wallets, you can simply check the boxes. If you want to offer Apple Pay / Google Pay / Microsoft Pay, be sure to click on the Configure icon for the Card method.
Then, check the box for Mobile Wallets.
Next, go ahead and click on the Form Fields tab. Here is where you can add, edit, and remove custom form fields to ensure that you collect the needed information from your customers or donors.
Feel free to schedule when your form starts and stops accepting payments from the Purchase Restrictions tab.
