Get Instant Email Notifications Whenever Your Customers Pay

By Johan Lieu · October 3rd, 2014

An oft-requested product feature by you fine Wufoo form owners? The ability to receive an email notification when a customer checks out and successfully pays through your Wufoo form (and not just when they fill out the form). Well, we’re happy to announce that now whenever a customer fills out your form and pays you, you now have the ability to have the email receipt sent to you too.

With this feature, you’ll be sent a copy of the email receipt that your customer receives. This way, you’ll have the payment receipt email for your records and you’ll know instantly when a customer has paid you. Note: setting up and receiving payment notifcations works for all payment providers (with the exception of PayPal Standard & Chargify) not just Stripe as pictured here. Definitely all good things to know, right?

Let’s walk through how to set it up!

Payment Settings Setup

To start receiving a copy of the email receipt when your customers check out, head on over to the Payment Settings for your specific form. Once there, you’ll see a new checkbox option in the second column (Payment Options) labeled, “Email Copy of Receipt to Me”. Click the checkbox and a text field will appear. Enter the email address where you’d like to receive your notification (up to 20 email addresses separated by a comma) and then click Save Settings.

That’s all there is to it. Now whenever one of your customer fills out your form and successfully pays you, you’ll instantly know since a copy of the email receipt will be sent to you automatically. As always, let us know what you think in our Comments section.

Wufoo Guides Available, Forums Shutting Down

By Johan Lieu · August 29th, 2014

On Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 we’ll be shutting down the Wufoo forums. When Wufoo first launched, we were a small and lean team. We really relied on our amazing Wufoo community to help each other out with their questions that we were unable to answer in a timely fashion.

Since that time our wonderful community has grown, and so has our customer support team. So much so that we can now help customers without them having to post/search their questions/anwers in the forums and hope that someone can help them out. Now, we’re able to answer our customer’s questions and inquiries directly and in a blink of an eye (well, maybe not a blink, but pretty darn fast). We really pride ourselves on our customer support and would only shut down the forums if we knew our customer support quality was top notch, and it is.

Ahead of the planned shutdown of the forums, we’ve been hard at work creating walkthrough and how to articles to make sure the best forum threads are preserved. We’re proud to announce that you’ll be able to find these pieces of content in our newly launched Wufoo Guides section. In Wufoo Guides, you’ll find all kinds of articles ranging from the basic stuff, to how to customize your Wufoo forms and experience, and even advanced techniques to really create something custom and incredible. We’ll continually add more guides in the future, so if you’ve got a topic you’d like covered please let us know in the Comments below.

We know that some of our most loyal customers have been using Wufoo for a while now and have been on the forums for almost as long, and we’d like to say thanks for all the support. Thanks! And, please continue to be part of the community and engage on our Facebook page, Google+, LinkedIn and of course, on Twitter.

Wufoo Now Supports Coupons For Stripe Subscriptions

By Johan Lieu · August 27th, 2014

We recently added support for Stripe Subscription Billing and we’re really happy with the response we got from you guys; it’s been overwhelmingly positive. Stripe Subscriptions makes it super easy for Wufoo customers to create a payment form and create and charge their customers on a recurring basis. No more worrying about whether or not your customers have paid you this month; Wufoo and Stripe takes care of it all for you.

With that said, we’ve also got a lot of feedback that coupon support was sorely needed. So, that’s what we added. You’ll now be able to offer discounts on your subscription plans to your customers using Stripe Subscriptions by using Stripe Coupons! Now you can get really creative with the deals you’ll be able to offer to your customers and increase the number of customers who will purchase your subscriptions. Here’s how you setup coupons to work with Stripe Subscriptions.

How to Setup Coupons in Stripe

The first step you’ll need to take to add coupon support to your Stripe Subscription payment integration is to create some coupons in Stripe. Head over to the Stripe Dashboard and on the left hand navigation panel you’ll find a link named, appropriately, “Coupons”. Clicking this link will bring you to the coupons panel where we’ll be spending most of our time.

As you can see in the above screenshot, all of my previously created coupon codes are listed. It allows me to track what codes I have active and to let me effortlessly manage them all. The next thing we need to do is create a coupon. Do this by clicking the ”+ New” link in the top right. A modal dialog window will then appear to let you do just that. It looks like this:

This modal has a bunch of options, so we’ll quickly walk through them item by item here:

  • Percent off: This allows you to offer percentage based coupons, like 10% off. You input the number (sans % sign) of the percent that you want to offer. It has to be a whole number, no 5.5 or 3.4’s.
  • Amount off: In the event that you’d rather give a specific amount off for your coupons, this is where you’ll go. You can enter in any numerical value (sans $ sign) like 4.99 or 9.99. Note: You can only offer a percent off or an amount off but not both. Choose only one for your coupon.
  • Currency: The currency which you’d like to discount. It should match the currency of the plans that you are offering. For example, if your subscription is $10 USD a month, your coupon should also be in USD.
  • Duration: This is where you’ll select how long the coupon should be in effect. There are three options: Once, Multi-Month, Forever.
    • Once means the coupon discount will only apply to the initial charge of the subscription but subsequent subscription renewal charges are for the full amount. Good for offering an initial discount on the subscription.
    • Multi-Month means the coupon discount will apply for X amount of months. For example, if you select 3 months, the discount will apply for each of the first 3 months the subscription is renewed but not on month 4 and forward. Note that this will only work for monthly subscriptions.
    • Forever means the coupon discount will apply for the duration of your customer’s subscription plan. Every single time your customer’s subscription renews, the discount will be applied. Perfect for offering life time deals and other such promotions.
  • ID (Code): This is the actual coupon code text that your customers will type in during checkout to apply their coupon code. You can use numbers and letters but no symbols.
  • Max redemptions: If you desire to cap the number of times a single coupon can be used, you can do that here. Simply enter in a number and once the coupon has been redeemed that many times, it will expire.
  • Redeem by: If you’d rather cap the number of times a single coupon can be used by setting an expiration date, you can do that here. Simply select a date and your coupons will expire on that date. You can use this in conjunction with Max redemptions so you can expire coupon codes by both usage and date, whichever comes first.

And that’s how you setup a coupon. In my example, I’ve created a 20% off discount that works only once and given it the uninspiring name of “20PERCENT”. I’ve also decided to not have any max redemptions nor expire the code so it’ll be good forever. After clicking the “Create coupon” button, the coupon settings are saved and immediately set live. The next thing to do is setup my Wufoo form’s payment settings to start accepting coupons.

How to Setup Coupons in Wufoo

Before you setup Stripe coupons, you’ll first need to add Stripe Subscriptions to your form. You can use our Stripe Subscription announcement blog post we’ve previously written to do just that.

Now that you’ve got your form all set with Stripe Subscriptions, we can now setup our form to accept the coupon codes we created in Stripe. To do this, simply head to the Payment Settings for your form. Once you’re there, simply check the “Allow for Coupons” checkbox in Payment Options. Click “Save Settings” and you’re all set! Now your payment form is set to accept coupons from your customers. Easy, peasy.

Coupons In Action

If you’re curious about the experience your users and customers will have when checking out with coupons, this is the section for you. When your customers visit your Stripe Subscriptions payment form that have coupons enabled, they’ll now see a text box that allows them to enter in a coupon code to get a discount as shown here:

If an enterprising customer decides to try to enter in a code that either a) doesn’t exist or b) has expired, they’ll be informed of this as shown here:

And if your customer does enter in a valid coupon code, they’ll see something similar to this:

Depending on the type of coupon code (Once, Multi-Month, Forever) the message that appears in the Recurring Charge line item box will differ. In the screenshot above, the customer entered in a coupon code that is valid for their entire subscription (e.g. Forever) which is why the message says, “(This coupon is good forever).” Multi-Month coupons will say something along the lines of, “(For the next 3 months).” And single use (e.g. Once) coupons say nothing of the sort (as they shouldn’t).

And finally, when a customer successfully purchases a subscription with a valid coupon code, you’ll be able to view all subscription purchases for each coupon code within the Stripe Dashboard. Just visit the Coupon panel again, click the corresponding coupon code and you’ll see the list of customers who have used your code.


We’re really excited to announce this improvement to the Stripe Subscriptions payment integration and in the coming weeks we’ll be writing about the various ways you can use coupons to give your users better deals and get even more of them as paying customers.

Stripe Subscription Billing Is Here!

By Johan Lieu · April 24th, 2014

It’s finally here. No, I’m not kidding. I wouldn’t kid about something like this. I wouldn’t toy with your emotions like that. I’ll just cut to the chase; starting today, you can now use Wufoo along with your Stripe account to create subscription (née recurring) plans for your customers. We know it’s something many of you have been looking forward to for a long time (apologizes in advance for the long delay!) but Stripe subscription billing is here.

Let’s jump right in and see how we can get your Wufoo forms setup with Stripe subscriptions!

How To Use This Integration

1. Create Your Subscription Plans In Stripe

To start creating subscription plans for your customers with Stripe, you’ll first need to create the subscription plans themselves in Stripe. To do this, simply log in to your Stripe account and navigate your way to the Stripe Dashboard. From there, click the navigation button labeled, “Plans”.

Click the “Create Your First Plan” button and a small dialog will appear that asks you to enter details for your plan. This is where the juicy stuff happens! In our example above, I need to create a monthly plan and an annual plan to fulfill my destiny of world domination via house cleaning. To create your subscription plan, you’ll need to enter in:

  • A Plan ID: This is just an arbitrary ID for your plan. We suggest using the name of your plan and separating the words with underscores.
  • Name: This is the name that your customers will see. You should make this super easy to understand and read. In my example, I named it “Monthly Cleaning Plan”. Simple, right?
  • Amount: This is the amount that you will be charging for each subscription interval. In this case, it’s $100 for monthly and $1000 for annual. (Hey, I’m not cheap, my cleanings services are top notch and totally worth it!)
  • Currency: This is the currency you want to accept payments in.
  • Interval: This is the frequency of your plan. In my case, I’d select monthly. For my annual plan, I would choose annual.
  • Trial period days: In the event that you’d like to offer a trial period for your subscriptions, you can enter in the number of days for the trial. Wufoo’s Stripe Subscription Billing supports trial periods, but that’s another blog post for another time. But trust me when I say it’s awesome.
  • Statement description: This is what shows up on your customer’s credit card bills. Keep it to 15 characters or less and no spaces.

Once you enter in your details for your plan, click the Create plan button and boom, you’re set. Create as many plans as you need, all in the same manner. Once you’re done, it’s time to head back to Wufoo and hook up your form with your Stripe Subscription Plans.

2. Setup Your Form

Well, of course, right? Simply head to the Form Builder and create your lovely Wufoo form that your customers will fill out. For our example here, I’ve created a form for my fictional (or is it?) cleaning company.

You can see that my form consists of some contact fields at the bottom (a name field, an email field, and an address field for my records).

But the interesting field is the first one, a multiple choice field. I’ve named this field the totally original, “Subscription Plans”. This field has two choices, one that is labeled “Monthly Plan, $100/month” and one labeled “Annual Plan, $1000/year — 17% Savings!”. Each of these choices directly correspond with a Stripe subscription plan in my Stripe account. For my annual plan, I even added a line about the savings of choosing the annual plan. You should make sure the labels for your choices in the form correspond with the names of the plans you created in Stripe. Nothing more confusing that selecting a plan that doesn’t match with what you think.

Note: Stripe Subscription Billing will only work with Multiple Choice or Drop Down Menu field types. If you want to use subscriptions, you’ll need to use one of these two field types.

Now, when someone selects one of these options and pays, a subscription profile will be created in Stripe for that customer and will be renewed for each billing period. If a customer wants my expertise in cleaning their house and wants to pay each month, they can select the Monthly Plan option and each month Stripe will charge their credit card. Easy-peasy.

But I get ahead of myself. The next step after creating your form is to create subscription plans within Stripe itself.

3. Connect Your Wufoo Form To Your Stripe Account & Plans

Now that we have a form in Wufoo, and subscription plans in Stripe, it’s time to connect the two. To do this, simply head to the Payment Settings for your form.

Once there, select “Stripe Subscription” from the Select A Merchant drop down menu. One click of the “Connect With Stripe” button will make a dialog box appear. From here you can choose to create a Stripe account, log in with your Stripe account, or if you’ve previously used Stripe on one of your forms, you can select that Stripe account from the drop down menu to speed up set up.

After you connect your Stripe account, it’s time to connect your form to your Stripe subscription plans. In the third panel on the right, you can select which field you’d like to assign your plans to. Remember, you can only setup Stripe subscription plans with multiple choice or drop down menu field types. If your form doesn’t have one of those fields on it, you won’t see anything here.

In our example, we choose the multiple choice field titled “Subscription Plans” from my cleaning form. Now we can associate each field choice with a specific plan. Here, I’ve associated the “Monthly Plan” option with the Monthly Plan I created in Stripe, and ditto for the “Annual Plan”. Hit the “Save Settings” button, and you’re all set to begin to receive payments and renew your customers without any work at all.

4. Managing Your Stripe Subscriptions

In the event you need to refund a customer or cancel their subscription (hey, cleaning houses is a subjective thing, people might not be happy), you can do this by visiting the same Stripe Dashboard where we setup our plans. From there you can visit the Payments page which lists all of the payments you’ve received. Simply hover over the transactions you’d like to refund and click the refund link. A small dialog box will appear asking you how much you’d like to refund, hit the Refund button, and your refund is set.

If you’d like to cancel a customer’s subscription, you’ll need to navigate to the Customers page. This page lists all of your customers and it’s here where you can dig into a specific customer to cancel their plan, refund them, or even delete their entire profile if you need. Basically, all management of your customers and their subscriptions and payments is done through the Stripe Dashboard. It’s super powerful, but tread lightly; things get real serious in there.


There you have it! You can now accept Stripe subscriptions from your customers through your Wufoo forms which automatically renew through Stripe. We’re ridiculously excited to release this feature and hope you, our awesome Wufoo customers, can find unique and novel ways to use Wufoo & Stripe together to make accepting payments even easier so you can get back to doing what you love rather than worrying about forms, payments, or subscriptions.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or notes, please leave them below. And if you want to comment about how we’ve finally rolled this out, that works too. We won’t hold it against you. :) Either way, thanks for being Wufoo customers and being awesome.

Heartbleed: A Note From Wufoo

By Johan Lieu · April 11th, 2014

On April 7, 2014, researchers disclosed a vulnerability in a technology called OpenSSL that powers encryption across much of the internet. The vulnerability is commonly known as the “OpenSSL Heartbleed Flaw.”

Our team took immediate action to secure Wufoo’s infrastructure against this flaw. We closed any exposure that might have existed and now want to let you know that Wufoo is not vulnerable to the Heartbleed flaw.

Although we have no reason to believe that any part of our service has been improperly accessed due to this vulnerability, as a matter of best practice we would like to recommend that all our customers reset their passwords. To reset your password, here’s what you do: Go to the User Management section. Once you’re in the User Management section, click on the Change Password button. A dialog window will appear and allow you to enter new password information. After entering a password, press the Save button to save the changes.

Rest easy tonight knowing your forms are safe. Form on, friends!

Wufoo Now Supports All Global Stripe Users

By Johan Lieu · January 28th, 2014

As I’m sure you’re aware by now, Wufoo hearts Stripe (omg get a room you two). So we’re really stoked to announce that we’ve expanded our Stripe integration to support all global Stripe users. You can now use Wufoo forms to accept online payments via Stripe if you’re located in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and more. Heck, any country that Stripe supports, Wufoo now supports. Here’s a list of countries supported by Stripe.

With global support for all Stripe users, you’ll be able to accept payments through your forms in any currency that your Stripe account accepts. For example, if you’re a Stripe user in the UK, you’ll be able to accept payments in British Pounds, Euros, or even US Dollars. The same goes for all Stripe countries and their currencies. If you can accept it through your Stripe account, you can accept it through your Wufoo form! Here’s a detailed list of currencies that Stripe supports for each country/region.

Best of all, Stripe recently (like, literally, last week) announced that all Stripe European countries that were previously invite-only are now open to all users. Located in France, Belgium, Germany, etc, and always wanted to try Stripe and Wufoo? There’s no better time than now.

Note: Don’t have a Stripe account and wish to create one while setting up your Wufoo form? Make sure to select your specific country in the Stripe account creation flow. That way your Stripe account will be setup correctly for you and your country. Just a heads up!

As always, we’re always interested in hearing your comments or feedback about anything we do, so feel free to comment below and let us know what you think.

P.S. Big thanks and props to the Stripe team for their great product and all of their support!

P.P.S. I wasn’t going to say anything but I think honesty is indeed the best policy, so I’m heading this one off at the pass. We know that Stripe recurring billing is one of the most popular feature requests but, I can’t promise anything at this point in time. But we hear you and want you to know that we’re just as excited about the prospect of Stripe subscription billing through Wufoo forms. /bracesforimpact

2013 Year in Review

By Johan Lieu · January 9th, 2014

Well, that was fast. Before we all dive head first into 2014, let’s hit the Pause button for a sec and take a look back at our great 2013 by highlighting four pretty big changes in the world of Wufoo.

Wufoo Integrates With Braintree

Starting the year off right on the heels of our Stripe payment integration, we announced our latest partner in payments—Braintree. One of our first payment integrations that offered support for a wide variety of international currencies, we were really excited that the ability to accept international currencies is now a reality.

Don’t forget—that was just one of many new integrations that we announced in 2013 so be sure to check ‘em all out in the blog and here if you haven’t already.


Five Star Rating Field

We finally were able to launch a field type that’s been requested a crap-ton (yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s a unit of measurement in the Imperial System) by you form fans over the years—the highly vaunted Five Star Rating Field Type. We were thrilled to see this field type in action, whether to simplify the process of filling out feedback forms or to make product reviews as easy as selecting a couple of stars.

Our team worked hard on the front end implementation side of the Five Star Rating Field Type to make sure it was silky smooth and as super responsive to user interaction and we nailed it. We’ve got even more enhancements to this field type coming soon, so keep an eye out.

Enabled SSL/HTTPS By Default For All Accounts

SSL

Another major change that we implemented this year was to enable SSL/HTTPS for all forms and all accounts by default. In a year where awareness about security and information safety has been heightened, we realized that security is an important issue for all of our customers. All forms on all accounts are now HTTPS/SSL enabled by default. It’s something we feel strongly about and wanted to make sure all of our customers’ and users’ information is safe and secure.

Wufoo Integrates With Dropbox

Finally…the biggie. After posting a blog post about our caffeine-fueled/addled Hackathon in which we came up with some pretty cool but hacky features, you guys came out in force and let us know that you wanted these features. Now.

So we took the dino by the horns and created an integration with Dropbox. After wrestling with the integration for a bit and ensuring that it hit our very high standards, we were very happy to announce our Dropbox integration in December.

The response has been wild, with Dropbox quickly becoming one of the most popular Wufoo integrations. We’re still looking to tweak and optimize the Dropbox integration, so the work continues.


2013 was a crazy, wild, and immensely rewarding year for us and we’re extremely grateful to have all of you as customers. All of us here at Wufoo wake up each morning looking to make Wufoo a little bit better, a bit more fun, a bit more delightful, and whole lot more useful for you, our customers. 2014 is shaping up to be even better. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on.

Thanks for a great 2013 from all of us here at Wufoo and here’s to 2014!

Integration Announcement: Dropbox Integration with Your Wufoo Forms

By Johan Lieu · December 10th, 2013

You might remember our sneak peek blog post from our previous Hackathon where we talked about some of the projects our engineers worked on whilst operating solely on hopes, dreams, and caffeine. One of the projects from that Hackathon was named WuBox which was a quick and dirty integration with Dropbox.

We devoted some time (a lot of this) and effort (even more of this) to really polish that integration to a level we thought our Wufoo customers came to expect and deserve. We’ve integrated with one of the most popular cloud storage companies in Dropbox and we’re ready to announce that you can now integrate your Dropbox account with your Wufoo forms. Files that are uploaded to your form can now be sent automatically to a folder within your Dropbox account.

But first, a little Celebration:

Setting Up The Integration

To get started with the Dropbox integration, you need to have a paid Wufoo account, on an Ad Hoc plan or higher. To add the Dropbox integration just head over to the Notification Settings for a form that is collecting file uploads. Select Dropbox from the drop down menu of integration partners and click “Add Integration”.

We’re using OAuth to authenticate you and your Dropbox account (similar to what we’ve updated Campaign Monitor and MailChimp with last week) so to connect, click the “Connect to Dropbox” button.

A new window will appear asking you to log in to your Dropbox account and grant Wufoo permission to access your files. Don’t worry, this is normal and we only need access to your Dropbox account so we can automatically upload files to your Dropbox account from your forms.

Note: If you are having problems connecting to Dropbox or don’t see a new window appear, you’ll need to allow pop ups for Wufoo.com so that the Dropbox log in window will appear.

After you grant Wufoo permission to access your Dropbox account you’ll be taken back to the Notification Settings screen where you’ll see the Dropbox integration options have changed. From here, you can select a folder within the top level of your Dropbox account (think /Dropbox/Folder) that you’d like file uploads to be placed.

Tip: To make it easier to discern files from different forms, we suggest creating a separate folder in your top level Dropbox folder for each of your forms. Like, /Dropbox/Job_Applications and /Dropbox/Client_Assets for two different forms.

Just select the folder in the drop down menu where you’d like file uploads on your form to be placed, click the “Save” button. The panel will update showing you what Dropbox account is associated with this form and in what folder files will be placed. Now whenever a user uploads a file to this form, the form will be uploaded to your Dropbox account instead of being stored within Wufoo.

Entry Manager & File Names

Since files uploaded to a form with Dropbox integration changes the behavior of files considerably (Wufoo no longer keeps a copy of the file and instead places it within your Dropbox account) we’ve had to modify the behavior of the Entry Manager slightly.

As you can see in the above screenshot, a user uploaded a file to my form and I’m looking at the entry within the Entry Manager. Normally, we’d provide a link to the file here, but since I’ve integrated with Dropbox, we now display a line of copy informing me that the file has been moved to Dropbox and is located in the “/Wufoo” folder.

Meanwhile, over at my Dropbox account, you can see that the file that was uploaded to my form is now located in my Dropbox/Wufoo folder (like magic!).

You can also see that the file name is different than in the previous screenshot. We’ve prefixed the file name of the uploaded file with the entry number of the corresponding entry for your form. In this case, I can easily see that this file is associated with the first entry on my form since the file name is now, entry-1-img_0207.jpg. This will allow you to easily identify which files are associated with which form entry.


We’re totally stoked to finally be able to release this integration for Wufoo customers. The use cases are practically endless (your clients can upload their design assets to you directly, employment applications can seamlessly send resumes to your shared HR Dropbox account, etc.) and we’re sure we’re missing some. If you’ve got a great use case for using Dropbox with your Wufoo forms, let us know in the comments below. In the following weeks, we’ll be posting more about the different things you can use Dropbox for and we’d love to share your implementations.

If you need more detail or help, please visit the Dropbox integration documentation.

Thanks and we hope you’re as excited as we are about Wufoo’s new Dropbox integration.
