Legacy Payment Forms


Legacy Payment Forms

You can use legacy payment forms to add a Paywall to your site.

Note: Legacy Payment Form was formerly known as Payment Form. We also renamed the previous Frictionless Checkout Form to Payment Form. If you want a seamless payment journey from anonymous to customer, you can use a payment form. For further information on Payment Form, see the Payment Form section.

Before you can use a Paywall, you must have set up the following:

  • Your payment provider, as described in the Payments section
  • A product that uses a corresponding payment option, as described in the Create a Product topic

Use a legacy payment form if you want to build separate journeys for your anonymous and registered users.

In this approach, you would use a registration form in your anonymous user rule and the legacy payment form as an outcome in your registered user rule.

To create a legacy payment form, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the Add button under the Legacy Payment Form headingThe Add Legacy Payment Form screen displays, as illustrated below:


  2. Enter a name for your payment form in the Title text box. By default, this is pre-filled with Payment Form
  3. Optionally, add a description of your payment form in the Description text box
  4. Select the Add a Payment Option buttonThe Add a Payment Option dialog box displays, as illustrated below:


    To complete the Add a Payment Option dialog box, complete the following steps:

    2. Enter the description of the plan as you want it to appear on your site in the Description text boxNote: If you want to format the text, for example to include a heading or a list, use the formatting bar at the top of the text box.

      If the payment option is part of a Scheduled Payment Plan, your users see the price for the first billing period on the payment form. Zephyr recommends that you include details of the time and manner in which the price changes as part of the description.
