Why Do you Need a Payment Landing Page?

Landing pages are designed to focus a visitor’s attention on one specific goal, whether it’s signing up for your newsletter or buying a product. Unlike your main website, they don’t have many links or distractions that could lead people away.

By adding a payment processor to your page, you make it incredibly easy for people to purchase your products or services immediately. This convenience can significantly increase sales compared to sending users to a separate shopping cart page.

For accepting payments on your page, you’ll need a few things:

  • A Payment Processor: Think of services like Stripe, PayPal, or Square as secure payment processors. They handle all the technical details of accepting different payment methods (like credit cards).
  • SSL Certificate: This is like a digital lock for your page. It makes sure any information customers share is scrambled while being sent, so it can’t be stolen.
  • PCI Compliance: This means following a set of rules to protect customer credit card information. It sounds complicated, but your payment service will help you figure out what you need to do.

So, how do you build a payment gateway landing page? Follow the 2 methods below to learn how.

Creating a Landing Page with Payment Gateway Using SeedProd

First, we’ll show you how to create a landing page and add payment integration with SeedProd.

SeedProd WordPress website builder

SeedProd is the best website and landing page builder for WordPress. It lets you create any part of your web design without writing code.

You can use SeedProd to build landing pages like:

  • High-converting sales pages
  • Entire WordPress website designs
  • Complete WooCommerce websites with checkout pages, product pages, and more.
  • Custom headers, footers, sidebars, and templates

Adding features to your site is easy with its customizable templates, WordPress blocks, and sections.

For instance, you can embed social media follow and share buttons to raise brand awareness and get more followers. Or you can use lead-generating elements like optin-forms, countdown timers, and call-to-action buttons to grow your list and boost sales.

One of the elements we’ll use in this method is SeedProd’s Payment Button block, which has payment gateway integration. It lets you start accepting payments using Stripe. It’s quick and easy to set up and requires zero coding.

So follow the steps below to create a payment gateway landing page with Stripe.

Step 1. Install and Activate SeedProd

Need more customization options? Simply click the Advanced tab to find button style, color, font, spacing, margin settings, and more.

Accepted payment methods: Does it support the cards and payment options your customers use?

Security: How secure is the gateway?

Some popular options include Stripe, PayPal, Square, and Braintree.
How can I ensure the security of transactions made through my landing page?
