Answers to Common Questions

Why do I need this extension, couldn’t I just use Gravity Forms by itself?

Gravity Forms has amazingly powerful form building capability, but when it comes to e-commerce, the reporting features of Gravity Forms are a bit weak when compared to the reporting included in Easy Digital Downloads. This extension not only lets you add purchase forms to any page on your site, it lets you leverage the tremendous form building power of Gravity Forms and the superb reporting functionality of Easy Digital Downloads.

Does Gravity Forms for EDD support subscription payments?
