After you have configured Stripe Globally, you can enable it for your registration forms. To do so, first, you will need to add the payment field and the stripe payment field to your form. Drag the fields to your form to add them.
After adding the fields, click on the single item payment field and then set the amount for this field. The set amount will be charged to your users during the registration process.

After inserting the field, please scroll to the end of the field settings for the Stripe Gateway field, you will find an option under Payment Method to use Credit Card, iDeal Payment, or both.
After you select the iDEAL payment option, then you have an option to choose the bank from which you want to make a payment.
Note: If you use any other currency than Euro, it is not accepted in the iDEAL Payment.
After the fields are added, one last thing that you need to do is enable Stripe for this registration form. To do so, Click on User Registration > Your Registration Form > Form Settings.
In the form settings, you can see Stripe Payments, click on it, and then click Enable Stripe Payment. Now you have enabled Stripe on your form. Click on update form and the changes will be saved.
