This guide is the beginning of the documentation with the built-in Notes for the database. Will help you gain a better understanding of how the template and Bubble works.
Starting with the Template
Once you have bought or added a template to your account, you will see a dropdown in the New Application popup that lets you pick a template as the basis for the new application.
Note: this can only be done when you create a new app.
After you've selected a template you bought, complete the other fields with necessary data (i.e: Name of the new app, What kind of application you are building, etc) and press Create a new app.
Tip: A template isn't a theme for your app, but a pre-built set of elements and workflows. You can modify the template as you would modify another app.
Wait for Bubble to load the application with all the data.
After the application has loaded, you'll see the bubble assistant on the left side for New Application. You can close it or follow the assistant steps to adjust different settings.
Now you're ready to go and dive into Bubble no-code development toolset.
Congrats! You have successfully created a Bubble app based on your template. Now, you can proceed with the setups.
Card payments in this template are powered by Stripe using the default card checkout providing a secure environment for users. To set up your Stripe account, go to https://stripe.com, and create an account.
Note: You will be allowed to access your dashboard once you have successfully verified your email address and activated your account.
1. The first step is to configure the Stripe dashboard, and the Stripe plugin within your editor.
Payments: See the documentation on how to set Stripe Payments in Bubble App.
2. The second step is to configure the API Connector plugin within your editor.
Go to Plugins -> API Connector -> Stripe CUSTOM API and hit to expand it, here:
The API will expand, where you will be able to configure it with your own API 🔑keys, here:
Add Bearer keyword in front of the keys values. And remember to change to Live keys when you decide to go live with your app.
Stripe CUSTOM API has 4 action calls:
- Retrieve a customer - used to get the details of a Stripe customer.
- Create a transfer - this is used to send the money to a freelancer that completed a job. When a Client/Employer pays for the project, the money lands on the platform account for keeping, and when the job is done - the money is transferred to the Freelancer.
- Retrieve balance - used to retrieve the Stripe balance of the platform which is displayed in the admin panel.
- Create a refund - used to create refunds to the Employer/Client.
- Get Payment - used to retrieve data about bank cards used for payment on the employer page.
To initialize the "Get Payment" data call, it is required to insert any bank card id registered within your Stripe dashboard in the value field:
Tip: Genuine card information cannot be used in test mode. Instead, use test Stripe cards credentials.
