How to Purchase FormLogix forms – Now starting at 1.99$

FormLogix have just reduced their prices and are giving away discount coupons for those who wish to purchase or renew their FormLogix subscription.

Another great change is that the formLogix form builder has a new free trial version for the period of 60 days. This free account is unlimitted in forms and submissions. Once this trial period is over you will need to purchase a subscription in order to use your email form/s.

Purchasing a form is really easy and is divided in to 2 steps:
A- making a form order in the FormLogix ‘Payment Center’.
B- Making the actual payment in PayPal. FormLogix does not handle its purchase transactions, it does not collect credit card numbers and such, but rather has a third party company – PayPal – do it for her.

There are 3 types of FormLogix subscriptions – you will need to review them in order to choose the most suitable for you:

1- Pay Per Form If you are interested in paying for only one or several forms (while leaving the rest of them in the free version) then this is a suitable option for you. FormLogix are now granting a coupon of ‘up to 50%’ discount to those wishing to purchase a ‘per form’ subscription. You may find this coupon on the FormLogix Facebook page.
Learn more about how to use the discount coupon.

* Please notice that the ‘per form’ subscription enables you to purchase a basic subscription (for the chosen forms) and add, if needed, 2 special features: SSL, File Upload.
If you wish to include these features you will need to turn on their checkboxes while you are making the order and before pressing on the “Buy Now” button.

2- Pay Per SubmissionIf you wish to base your subscription on a fixed number of submissions instead of on a certain time period than this is the option for you.
Once you choose this option all the forms in your account will automaticly be included in the paid version. Each time someone fills in one of your forms the number of submissions will reduce by 1.
Please notice that this type of subscription does not include the 2 special features:
SSL, File Upload.

This is an all included, unlimitted paid subscription for your entire account. If you wish to work freely than this is the option for you.
The VIP prices have just reduced and start at a monthly rate of 8.99$ for the period of 12 months.
All you need to do is choose the period of subscription and all your forms will function under the paid version for that period of time.

Creating an online order or purchase form – Part 2: purchase form

creating a purchase form enables the form owner to sell products online. Since FormLogix does not deal with payment processing at all the only way one can build a purchase form is by using the “Payment Integration” option.
Payment integration is a feature that connects the form to a payment processing company such as PayPal, Moneybookers, Google checkout or Swreg and makes online purchasing possible.

Following are step by step instructions of how to create a purchase form in the form builder:
1- Drag a label for the title of the form. Change its text to: Purchase Form
2- Add an image element to show your product. And a label to provide some information about it.
3- Drag a textbox and an email element to collect the user’s name and email address
give each element a tab index number in the “element settings” and a caption.
4- Drag 2 labels and place each next to an element. Change their text to “name” and “email”
5- Drag a label and use it to explain how the purchase process works in the form (for example: Once submitting this form the purchase process will be directed to paypal.)
6- Drag a button and change its text in the element settings to “Proceed to purchase”.
product name and price, for instance, already filled in.
7- Save the email form.
8- Add the purchase component to your form by using the “Payment integration” option.
Open the “payment integration” window from the “form settings”.
Choose the payment processing company from the list so that when your user decides to buy the product he will automatically be directed to the processing website to execute the purchase.
Once you choose a company you will need to fill in the details of your product. By doing so the user will be directed to the executing website along with the details of the product name and price, for instance, already filled in.
press on “finish”.
9- Save the form.

Creating an online order or purchase form

In the following post i will discuss the differences between an order form and a purchase form and provide a step by step instruction of how to create a simple order form (I will elaborate on the purchase form in the next post).

Many people have started to collect orders and even sell their products online. In order to add this kind of email form to your website you will probably need to spend a large sum of money to hire a professional programmer. Another alternative, especially for those who do not have any programming skills, is using a form builder.

What is the difference between an order form and a purchase form?
An order form – is a form in which the users choose a product and order it. This form does not deal with the purchasing process at all. Usually the multi-line element is used in this form to collect the info of several items.
A purchase form – a form in which the users can choose the item they want to buy and pay for it online using PayPal/Google checkout/Swreg/Moneybookers. In order to create such a form you have to use the “Payment Integration” option.

Here is a step by step instruction of how to create an order form in the form builder:
1- drag elements to collect the user’s personal information –
textbox to collect his/her name
textbox to collect his/her address
textbox to collect the phone number
email element to collect the user’s email address

a multiline which contains a textbox for collecting the product name, a numeric textbox for collecting the
quantity of each product and a textarea for collecting free text (remarks).
* Don’t forget to give each element a name (element settings>caption) and tab index number (element
settings>tab index).

2- Drag labels for each element. Change their text to be same as the element’s name and
place them next to the relevant elements.
3- Drag 2 labels and create section titles: Personal details and Order details.
4- Drag a submit button.
5- Design the form (colors, positioning etc)
6- Save the form.
