Payment Buttons & Links

Accepting payments on your Fast Member membership site is done with preconfigured payment buttons.

These are created in the Payment Processors section for each processor you wish to use.

You can view the full tutorial on Payment Processors here.

Once you have a button configuration setup you then insert into a page as a button or link.

This can be done either using the Button & Link Generator or with the Fast Member shortcode

Button & Link Generator

From the Buttons & Links page you can create  either a payment link or a payment button HTML embed codes

Payment Link – this can be copied and used anywhere you wish to use a direct link to your payment processor. 

This link can be used with the Fast Buttons CSS3 button builder addon. For more details on Fast Buttons click here.

Embed Code – This can be embedded on any HTML site and uses graphical image based buttons.
