user inputs money they want to pay but need to add a fee on top of that.Asked by langley on January 05, 2011 at 10:45 PM
I have a form that takes in a user amount they want to pay but need to add a $9.00 processing fee on top of the user input. I was told i could edit the code to do this but my question is...Once i've changed the code how do i go about putting that code into jotform if i still want to be using it as a secured form with https.
If this is a subscription payment, add setup fee on the "Payment Wizard" > "Products" page.
If this is for a one-time payment. Simply add new product that says "Processing Fee".
What if the amount to be added needs to be a percentage? Like a processing fee of 3% to cover paypal costs?
Hello cheekyface, you can pre-add the 3% fee on your products like what my colleague had suggested on your past thread here:
You can have a product with price of $25 and just put $25.75(percentage fee included). Thanks
Thanks for that but that is too time consuming for us. We offer services based on hourly rates and the total is usually different for each client so it would be the same as invoicing the client twice. I'd need to just put a link to the payment form in the invoices I send them and they choose if they want to pay this way. For now we just get their credit card details and process the payment via a terminal. Paypal is not a real option because we use a different system for invoicing.
There would be no point in duplicating the invoice process for us so I'll just wait until this feature is available before I make use of the payment options in forms.
