How to configure the integration. Step-by-Step Guide:

2. Copy your Stripe Secret Key:

Next, you'll need to connect your Stripe account to your form. To do this, sign in to your Stripe account and go to the "API Keys" section. Here, you'll find your "Secret Key." Make sure to keep this key confidential, as it allows you to manage payments and access sensitive data. Copy the Secret Key.

3. Paste the Secret Key into the "Secret key" input:

Return to your Nerdy Form account and navigate to the "Integrations" tab. Click on the Stripe Checkout integration and find the "Secret key" input field. Paste your copied Stripe Secret Key here and click "Save." This will securely connect your Stripe account to your form builder.

5. Create success and failure pages on your website:

It's essential to provide your donors with feedback on their payment status. To do this, create two separate pages on your website: a success page and a failure page. The success page will be displayed when a payment is successfully processed, while the failure page will be shown when a payment cannot be completed. These pages should include clear messaging, thanking donors for their support (in case of success), or providing instructions on how to resolve any issues (in case of failure).

Ensuring Data Security and Privacy with Nerdy Form and Stripe Integration:

At Nerdy Form, we prioritize the security and privacy of your donors' information. When using our Stripe integration, it's crucial to reassure your donors that their sensitive data, such as credit card information, is handled with the utmost care.

We want to emphasize that Nerdy Form does not store any credit card data. All payment processing is securely managed by Stripe, a leading payment gateway trusted by millions of businesses worldwide. Stripe is known for its stringent security measures and compliance with the highest industry standards, such as PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). This ensures that your donors' payment information is always protected and never stored on our servers.

When a donor submits a payment through a Nerdy Form, their credit card information is sent directly to Stripe, bypassing our servers entirely. Stripe then processes the payment and returns a token to the form, which we use to confirm the transaction's success or failure. This token does not contain any sensitive data, ensuring that your donors' credit card information remains secure at all times.

By integrating Nerdy Form with Stripe Checkout, you can provide your donors with a safe and secure donation experience, while also maintaining their trust and confidence in your organization. With the assurance that their payment information is handled responsibly, donors can focus on supporting your cause, knowing that their data is in safe hands.


Integrating Stripe Checkout with Nerdy Form is an excellent solution for collecting donations through your online forms. With our step-by-step guide, you can easily set up this powerful integration, allowing you to focus on your fundraising efforts and achieve your goals. From non-profit organizations to creative projects, our Stripe integration is the perfect tool to help you make a difference.
