Delay PDF Generation Until Payment is Captured

Sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where you’d like to delay generation of PDF until after payment is collected.

This is especially relevant if you’re using an add-on like PayPal Payments Standard or Stripe (set to use the Stripe Checkout payment collection method) that redirects the user after submission to a hosted payment page to collect the actual payment. Since it’s possible for a user to fully abandon the payment process after the redirection occurs, you may not want Fillable PDFs to generate a PDF unless the payment gateway sends the signal back to your site that the payment was successfully captured.

To set up the delay, all you need to do is check the Generate PDF only when payment is received option in your payment add-on feed:
