I know many members have built their own cart without Stripe, however I’ve built two custom carts that take payment via Stripe and I always end up creating a copy of the sales sheet so Glide can pick up the data. This also creates a lag when using visibility conditions and is often the only thing in my way when trying to make GS formula-free Glide apps.
I don’t see the logic in hiding the sheet. A lot of great conditions can be (and sometimes need to be) built based off of information from the same sheet. If the sheet needs to go untouched, maybe ”locking” the data is an option? So that developers can’t edit it but the data can still be read and leveraged from within Glide. Would love to hear other thoughts!
