Guide to Charging for Your Apps

In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of handling app charges in Lightfunnels.


Charging for your apps in Lightfunnels is a straightforward process. Here are the key points to keep in mind:

  • One Active Charge Per Account:

    • At any given time, an app can have only one active charge per user account.
  • Automatic Deactivation:

    • Activating a new charge will automatically deactivate any previous charges associated with the user's account.
  • Free Trial Recommendation:

    • For a positive user experience, it is highly recommended to include a free trial period with your charge.

Step 1: Create a Charge

Step 2: Obtain Charge URL

Once you've created the charge, the response will contain a URL. Extract this URL from the response payload.

Step 3: Redirect User to Accept Charge

Send the user to the obtained charge URL. This can typically be done by redirecting the user's browser to the URL.

Step 4: Redirect User Upon Charge Acceptance or Denial

Upon the user's acceptance or denial of the charge, they will automatically be redirected to the specified return_url that was provided in the charge creation process.

Step 5: Check Charge Status Timestamp

Discover the exact moment a user accepts the charge by capturing the timestamp. Otherwise, the accepted_at timestamp will be null.
