Once you have configured ContestPad to accept payments through the Stripe payment gateway (see: http://help.launchpad6.com/contestpad-knowledgebase/connecting-contestpad-to-a-payment-gateway) you can now setup to accept and monitor payments for entry.

To turn on the gateway option and set payment amounts and currency go to the settings tab for the contest.

Set the amount you want to accept and currency and turn on the gateway option. Now you entry form will now automatically have the payment details appended to the bottom of the form.

Setup receipt notifications

In order to ensure your customers receive a Receipt notification with every payment, go to the notifications tab and locate the Contest Entry Payment template.

The system will automatically send every participant who has made a payment a receipt notification via email using the details you place in this template.

Update this to reflect your needs. Note the variables that are used to provide the actual details of the transaction.

Monitoring transactions

Every transaction that is successfully received is tracked in the transactions table. 

This can be exported for analysis. Remember also all transactions are going to the Stripe payment gateway so a full transaction history can also be found in the Stripe dashboard.
