Hosted Sign-Up Pages

ChargeOver provides hosted sign-up pages or checkout forms for each of your plans and products.

Enable Hosted Sign-Up Pages

  1. Go to your Settings then Add-Ons then Hosted Sign-up Pages
  1. Click Get Started
  1. To add and customize a new hosted signup form template, click the New Hosted Form button
  • You can also edit an already existing template by clicking the name of the form you want to edit and select the "Edit Tab"

  1. You'll be brought to a page with an array of options that allow you to choose things like
  • What fields are on the form
  • Whether the customer should be sent a welcome email or payment receipt after signing up
  • Whether to show terms & conditions etc.

If you do not see the option for a customization you want to make, you can contact us here. We may be able to make additional changes for you that are not available in the UI, such as adding custom fields.

  1. Go to Plans & Products
  2. Click on the product you want to find the link for
  3. Under Plan/ Product Overview, click the Hosted Sign-up Form/Link button

  1. This will give you the link to the hosted signup form. You can send this link to your customer(s) or link to it from your webpage

  1. Go to Settings then Add-Ons and Hosted Sign-Up Pages
  1. Click the Get sign-up form link button next to a template

  1. Select the product that you want the sign-up form link for from the drop down menu

You will be given the sign-up form link for the product you have selected.


In addition, if you want to host forms on your own website, but still securely collect credit card information, you can use ChargeOver.js

Using ChargeOver.js gives additional flexibility like being able to add your own fields, completely control look the look and feel of the forms, and allow people to signup for multiple plans at one time etc.

Pre-Authorizations, Declines and Hosted Signup Pages

By default, if someone signs up using a hosted signup form with a bad card, the subscription is still created.

The customer is then presented with an invoice to pay.

If this behavior is undesirable, you can turn on pre-authorizations on the payment gateway. This causes a $1.00 charge to happen to the card immediately, prior to the actual subscription being created. If the $1.00 charge is declined, then the subscription is never created.

This isn't 100% effective (e.g. there can be a case where the $1.00 auth succeeds... but a larger $100 charge after the subscription create then declines) but it should be better than nothing.

Use Sign-Up Pages for One-Time Purchases

Hosted sign-up pages can be used in different ways. If you don't want to use them to sign up customers for recurring subscriptions, you can use it for a one-time registration or purchase instead.

  1. Create a product that only has a Setup Fee. You will want to use the Flat Pricing option to do this

  1. Save
  1. Now that the product has been created, you can click Hosted Sign-Up Form/Link in the right corner of the screen

  1. Copy whichever link you want to use

  1. Now, when a customer uses the hosted sign-up page, a One-Time invoice will be created for that specific product
  1. You will be able to find the one-time invoice in your Invoices. It will look something like this

If you look at the line items, you can see the only charges are a one-time charge and a credit card processing fee.

There are no recurring charges because this product was purposefully not be set up as a subscription.
