Video Idea: Accepting Credit Card Payments

Site Feedback • Asked by Michael Stitt

Most web apps need the ability to accept payments from their users (whether they're automated monthly payments or just simple one time payments). It was such a easy process getting going as a Pro subscriber on GoRails, I'd love to see you walk us through how to do it with our own Rails app. I also think the "Account" page is very clean/uncluttered and I like how I can see my payment history.

I'm more interested in how I integrate a payment processor and accept payments than I am displaying a receipt. If you're not interested in making a video would you mind describing who/what you use to capture payments and any things I need to consider when implementing it myself?

Thanks!


Definitely need to get on this one! It's one of the most requested things and I just need to sit down and do it. I'm just using the Stripe JS library coupled with the Rubygem. The JS turns the card into a token, sends it to the server, and the server charges the card and updates the user. That's about it.

I'll make sure to bump this topic up in the queue so I can record it soon.


Sweet. Looking forward to this!
