In this video, learn how to utilize Glide Call API and Payhere payment gateway to enable your users to easily subscribe and access premium features within your app.
No more Make. No more Zapier.
This video covers:
Glide Call API and Payhere: no more middleman needed in order to create a smooth subscription experience
Setting Up Payhere Account: set up user-specific payment plan links
Glide App Configuration: configure Call API columns, create a user-friendly subscription screen, and design an intuitive subscription flow
Handling Subscription Status: manage subscription statuses using the Glide Call API. Grant access to premium content only for subscribed users
One note is that at 25:25, I discuss a technique known as cache busting in order to refresh the endpoint in order to fetch the latest subscription status. In the video I use the “now” value which would effectively call the API every 10 seconds = LOTS of updates.
To mitigate, you can use a Math column to update, let’s say, every 24 hours. Use a math column to calculate a daily value YEAR(D)*10^4+MONTH(D)*10^2+DAY(D) where D is now. Then use this value instead of now.
May be a silly question, can we Call Glide API using this column? I want to add multiple rows based on various conditions. Currently, we have to use Make to iterate it and adding multiple rows using Glide API. Can we skip Make in my use case using Call API column by any chance?
But instead of all those conditional branches in your action, you can do it with a single API call, regardless of the number of rows to be added. It’s just a matter of preparing all the mutations, joining them together, and then sending the API call - just like in my example.
Why don’t you try it for yourself first?
You might find that it isn’t as difficult as you think it is.
I can’t give you specific instructions, as every use case will be slightly different. But the video I shared - and especially Bob’s tutorial - shows you the general approach. You just need to take that and apply it to your own situation.
I cannot understand why I am having so much difficulty to copy multiple rows like what you have shown. My process is like this.
Highlight rows to copy (non-computed column). Press Ctrl-C to copy
Click on row (non-computed column) to paste and press Ctrl-V
I cannot paste into individual columns. However, if I double-click on a cell (meaning I enter the cell) and do Ctrl-V, then all the copied rows will be pasted. But this is pasting, eg 3 rows of value into a single cell.
Any other suggestions? Is there a system setting I need to change?
