Step 1: Setting up the Orders Table
The Orders table will contain the master order information. Follow these steps to set it up:
- Add the Orders table and define its fields (e.g., order number, user connection, order status, ordered on).
- Set up a record rule to automatically set the user and order status when a record is submitted.
Step 2: Creating the Products Table
The Products table will store the products you wish to sell. Here's how to create it:
- Add the Products table and define its fields (e.g., product name, price).
Step 3: Configuring the Order Line Items Table
The Order Line Items table will connect the Orders and Products tables. Follow these steps:
- Create the Order Line Items table with connections to the Orders and Products tables.
- Add the quantity field and a basic formula field to calculate the total price for each line item.
Step 4: Setting up the Order Form
Configure the order form to allow users to add products to their orders:
- Remove unnecessary fields from the form.
- Use record rules to automatically set the user and order status when a record is submitted.
- Set up a redirect rule to direct users to the Order Details page after submitting the form.
Step 5: Designing the Order Details Page
Enhance the Order Details page to display order information and allow users to add line items:
- Add a table to display the connected order line items.
- Include a form to add new order line items.
Step 6: Enabling Stripe Payments
Before integrating Stripe, ensure you have a Stripe account and obtain your secret key:
- Sign in to your Stripe account and enable test mode.
- Copy the secret key provided by Stripe.
Step 7: Integrating Stripe Payments into Tadabase
Follow these steps to integrate Stripe payments into your Tadabase application:
- Go to the application settings in Tadabase.
- Open the Stripe Payments section and enter your secret key.
Step 8: Testing the Payment System
Test the payment system using the Stripe test mode:
- Complete an order by adding products and reviewing the grand total.
- Enter test credit card information.
- Verify that the order status is updated to "Paid" and view the returned Stripe values.
