Requirements and conventions

Please check and consider the Session-API Requirements and conventions. Additionally, if you write your own HTML and use our jQuery-Plugin, following instructions can be helpful.

Field names

You have to use the payment-namespace for the name. We also recommend to set the suitable ID.

<input type="text" name="payment[amount]" id="payment_amount" />

Field wrapper

We recommend to use suitable wrapper-divs for better error handling and show/hide-effects.

<div id="payment_amount_wrapper">
  <label for="payment_amount">Amount</label>
  <input type="text" id="payment_amount" name="payment[amount]">
  <div class="error" id="payment_amount_error"></div>

Error handling

You can place and design your errors like you want. If you want to use the automatic error rendering you have to provide an element (e.g. div, span, label, ...) with the required ID (fieldname + "_error") and class ("error").

<div class="error" id="payment_amount_error"></div>

The automatic error renderings also adds the "has-error"-class to the coresponding input and wrapper, if they exists.

Example code after auto rendering errors:

<div id="payment_amount_wrapper" class="has-error">
  <label for="payment_amount">Amount</label>
  <input type="text" id="payment_amount" name="payment[amount]" class="has-error">
  <div class="error" id="payment_amount_error">This field is required.</div>

Global errors
Global errors are special errors not bound to a special field and can occur e.g. after a failed payment or if you submit a field, that's not part of the form (this should be fixed during the development of your form). You should show global errors to the user so he/she can contact you if something went wrong. For automatic error rendering you have to provide an element with "global_error"-class.

<div class="global_error"></div>


Other fields errors

The Form-API automatically renders existing "other_fields" errors into the "global_errors"-element if there is no next url given. Because in this case some required fields are missing to process the payment.

FundraisingBox Link and Logo


If you are using our Form-API, according to our api terms, you have to show and link our logo on each page. Please use the following code:

<a target="_blank" href=""><img border="0" style="border: 0 !important" src="" alt="FundraisingBox Logo"></a>
