    Recurring payments on a donation form with specified amounts

    Asked by JFedGMW on February 07, 2017 at 02:29 PM

    Now that version 4 is released, can we create a recurring payment option on a donation form that has specified amounts? If I understand correctly, previously you needed to select "subscription" as a payment option for recurring payments and "sell products" if you wanted to specify an amount.

    Unfortunately, you cannot have both payment types in the same form, you need to select only one of them to use in your form and this is the same in our v4 builder. 

    There's a workaround for this, but it is actually limited to some payment gateways only, you may take a look on this link where it's described how to achieve it: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1008111

    I decided to keep things simple and created a test form "Recurring Payment/Specified Amount." Here's the url:

    My plan was to create a form using the subscription feature. I only see "sell products" and "make a donation" as options. What happened to "subscription."?

    Unfortunately "sell subscription" option is not supported with Square Integration, because their api does not yet support it.

    For now you can only "sell products" and "make a donation" with Square. 

    However you can use our other payment tools like PayPal, Stripe, Authorize.Net, Braintree or Dwolla.
