    Asked on May 08, 2017 at 08:13 PM

    Hello,

    In my current JotFotform (https://form.jotform.me/70233165649457)  I have a STRIPE button, subscription service which bills weekly.

     

    However, I wanted to add more STRIPE buttons, but not a subscription option, and wanted them all to integrate together, either alone or customer choice.

     

    The integration will include the following:

    - STRIPE button with a drop-down box (Ex. My current JotForm Ticket Protection https://form.jotform.us/70217432284148)

    - STRIPE button, where the user can "enter" a specific dollar amount, not pre-filled with a price

    - STRIPE button with a subscription service (Current button)

     

    I wanted to add these 3 options all within one JotForm, where the user can either select one STRIPE button, or more than one, and the

    JotForm will automatically compute the selections.

     

    Can this be done?

     

    Thanks,

     

    George

    I think what you are after is the Variable Price option in the payment type Subscription of payment integration.

    Please check this user guide:  Setting-up-a-Custom-Recurring-Donation-Form

     

    Here is demo form you can test https://www.jotform.com/61496633221959.

    In the demo form, you can assign custom amount value for the subscription.

    Let us know if this will not work for your.

    Hello Jonathan,

    I also want one of the STRIPE buttons to allow a user to "enter a dollar amount" then have it processed.

    Button #2 will have a drop-down box for quantity, where for each selection (# selected), the price automatically adjusts.

     

    Can these 3 separate buttons (Including the subscription button I already have), be added.

     

    1.) Subscription Button

    2.) Button for quantity, where the price set per item, automatically adjusts when the user selects the amount / quantity wanted

    3.) Button where the user enters the actual price for the item

     

    Thanks again

    2.) above, a quantity drop-down box, like I currently have in this jotform:

     

    Ticket Protection

     

    I wanted all three options to be within one JotForm.

    Dear George,

    To my understanding, you want to sell both subscriptions, collect the user-defined amounts and sell products in the same form by using Stripe. Am I correct?

    Unfortunately, It is not possible currently.

    The more you can do could be that; you can create multiple forms separately and merge them all together with iFrame Embed widget in the same form. Or, you can create these forms separately and embed to the same website.

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks.

    Hello Candy and Jonathan,

    Thanks for both of your answers and responses.

    I have narrowed it down, allowing the user to "preselect" the amount they either want to pay weekly, bi-monthly, one-time, the user selects.

    With that said, it looks as though with Jonathan's VARIABLE PRICE OPTION, he listed above, will be the best option.

    Since the user will be purchasing tickets from my website, I will use STRIPE, and they can either enter 1 dollar amount (Pay the entire ticket purchase in full) or set up payments with a specific dollar amount.

    However, I didn't want it to be called DONATION, as this is not a non-profit.

     

    Can this be done, where the user enters the amount they want to pay (Variable Price) and the time limit (e.g. weekly, one-time, monthly, etc....)?

    I will add a fee to each payment, on my STRIPE account to add to each payment, or either include in the payment they add.

     

    Thanks again for your help.

     

    George

    Hi George,

    You can edit the actual description of each items(subscriptions) to something else. Open the Payment settings wizard and edit them.

    Hello Jonathan,

    Thanks for your response.

     

    As it is obvious I am a tech novice :)

     

    Can the name of the feature also be changed from "Recurring Donation?" to "Payment Options?"

    - And, within the multiple payment blocks, can one used for the user to enter only "one" payment alone, without recurring? (Wanted to use that for the last-minute shoppers)

    - How would I add a fee, or %amount to any of the payment options?

    a.) So that whenever a user enters a $ amount, a, for example, 10% fee is added, so I can get something back from STRIPE who charges 2.9% + $0.30 for each transaction

     

    Thanks again,

    The screenshot provided by our colleague is a demo screenshot to help you understand how the payment wizard works. And, yes. You can change the payment field label as per your requirement from the form builder.

    - And, within the multiple payment blocks, can one used for the user to enter only "one" payment alone, without recurring? (Wanted to use that for the last-minute shoppers)

    Unfortunately, Stripe subscriptions are not having one time payments and it is required to have one of the payment frequencies available.

    - How would I add a fee, or %amount to any of the payment options?

    a.) So that whenever a user enters a $ amount, a, for example, 10% fee is added, so I can get something back from STRIPE who charges 2.9% + $0.30 for each transaction

    This option is also not available with subscription payments. You may use Tax feature if you are using products in the payment wizard.

     

    As already suggested by our colleague Candy, you may consider having separate forms for recurring payments and one-time payments. Please take a look at the following guide that can help you setting up multiple payment form.
