    You can have two submit buttons. But you cannot have them submit to different locations.

    However, there is way to accomplish what you would like. If the total payment amount is $0, the user will not be submitted to PayPal. So, you should add a "Free" option to your form with $0 as price and if they choose that they will notbe redirected to PayPal for payment.

    Thanks, but I still cannot accomplish more than one "Payment Tool."  I suppose this is an option with a paid upgrade?

    No, you cannot have more than one payment tool on the same form. You should instead have a $0 product on your existing payment field.

    I guess I can't see how I can accomplish what I want, which is:

    1. submit the form and send me a check (a "$0.00" amount, I suppose)

    2. submit the form and pay via Paypal (a $50.00" amount)

    In either case I want the form info to go to my email, like usual.  I'm totally new to Jotform, but it seems that if i have more than one submit button *and* a pay option, the submit form defaults to the pay option.

    Thanks for staying with me here, and sorry if I'm being obtuse...

    Yes, it would work exactly like that. The email would arrive only when the user completes the payment if she chooses the $50 option.

    Adding multiple submit buttons to the page does not change anything. They will all submit to the same information.

    Please add the $0 option and post the URL of the form. Then describe what you are doing and what you are expecting it to behave?
