CRM: Paid Portal Access
What is Paid Portal Access (PPA) ?
In some cases, your business logic might require that Contacts will pay before they are allowed access to the Portal. This feature gives you the option of requiring a One-Time Payment or a Subscription Payment before access to the Portal is permitted.
Get started with Paid Portal Access
You'll need to configure a Payment Gateway for Paid Portal Access (PPA). You must have a Gateway in place so that you can collect the funds. Once you're set up, you are ready to accept payment from your Contacts.

Setting up PPA with Intake Forms
Navigate to Forms and click the +Create Form button. Select Intake Forms.
Once you've specified the Role as Client, there will be a checkbox to Require Contact to pay before accessing Portal. Enable this option to configure it.
Choose a Title for the Invoice that will be auto-created and assigned to the Contact once they complete the Intake Form. You can use Dynamic Placeholders for personalization.

Choose whether or not you require a One-Time Payment or a Subscription Payment (or both).
Setting up One-Time Payment Access
If you choose One-Time Payment, you will be given the option to include an additional Subscription Payment. More information below
Choose a Title for the Item that will be included in the Invoice.
Input the Amount and Currency, and select a Payment Gateway.
If you want to include a Subscription Payment along with a One-Time Payment, you can select a Subscription Payment from the dropdown menu. In this case the first generated Invoice will include both charges, and each subsequent Invoice will only contain the Subscription charge.
Setting up a Subscription Payment (Automatic Recurring Payments)
Before you can set up PPA with a Subscription Payment, you must have a Subscription configured.

Once you have your plan configured, you can choose it from the dropdown menu.
What will the Client see?
The Client will complete the Intake Form as normal, and all other actions associated with the Intake Form will be the same.
If you have chosen to have the Welcome Email sent automatically, the Client will click the enclosed link and be taken to the Complete Registration screen where they will set their password.
Immediately after they complete the registration, they will be directed to the Pay Invoice view where they will see the generated Invoice.
The Client must choose from the available Gateways and complete the payment. After the platform confirms payment is complete, the Client will be directed to the Portal and the appropriate settings from the Intake Form will take effect.
