While Google Forms has no native way to accept payments, getting paid via Paypal, Stripe or Square is easy to do in a Google Form by using the Payable Forms Add-On, an extension from the Google Store that takes just a few minutes to set up and will have you getting paid instantly. Use your Google Forms to sell tshirts, host events, and even sign up members to subscription services. It’s easy with Payable Forms, which integrates into any existing or new Google Form seamlessly. All you need is a Google account and a method of getting paid, like PayPal.
In the past, it was impossible to get paid directly in a Google Form, but now it’s simple—and there are no up-front commitments or subscription fees with Payable.
Payable is ideal for small businesses and entrepreneurs who want to sell, but who don’t want to pay for web hosting or subscription fees as they test the market. But big businesses use Payable as well—one baseball camp has done several six-figure camps in the last year alone, and Payable is used to process membership payments for one of the biggest business associations in Canada. No matter what volume of sales you or your organization is doing, Payable is a great free option. We offer detailed getting started videos on the Payable Apps YouTube Channel that you can follow along with to get setup, and help desk articles and chat support should you get stuck.
Compared to setting up a Squarespace, Shopify, WordPress, Etsy or Wix website and account, using Payable with your already existing Google account means that you’ll be up and running in minutes. Even if you would like to eventually shift to running a larger-scale web store, using the Payable integration with Google Forms allows you to test your market, pricing strategies and order fulfillment before committing to a costly website. Because it’s built in Google Forms, it’s easy to make updates and you can share the Google Sheet with your friends or co-workers that need real time access to the latest orders and payment statuses.
Whether you’re hosting a pizza night with some friends and need to collect orders and RSVPs (and cash for the pizza) or you’re trying to get a t-shirt order done for your kiddo’s soccer team, Payable Forms is here to make your life easier.
