    Requesting the ability to have multiple payment options on the same form

    Asked by ElleEstLuLaRoe on June 14, 2017 at 08:38 PM

    You know what I would like to see?  I'd love to be able to provide multiple payment options on a form. 

    Right now, we provide our customers with the ability to pay via Square, EMT or PayPal.  Every time I have to make a change, I have to do it three times, once on each of my forms. 

    The same goes for when I download information into XLS.  I have to combine all forms, etc. to get a full view of my inventory sold.

    I'd love to be able to integrate a form into multiple payment options.  It'd be so much easier and save so much time if I could just have 3 different submit buttons at the bottom of the form, one for each payment option type.

    I'd love to consolidate my sales into one form.

    Thank you for bringing us this matter to our attention. 

    I escalated your request to the second level but I also would like to inform you for the multiple payment form feature. You can achieve the thing you are looking for with some additional feature on JotForm. 

    The idea here is so simple. You can create a form for each payment integration and include these forms to the main form via Iframe embed widget. Here is detailed user guides you may want to look into.

    This is all great, and I'm going to work on combining my forms into one. 

    It doesn't, however, help me to save time when I need to make a product change in the forms.  I still have to go and make the chance on each form....I wish, when I changed one, it would propagate on all of them.  And it still gives me my data in 3 different forms instead of having them all easily consolidated in one XLS file.

     

    But this is a start.  Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with, with regards to having multiple submit buttons on each form.

    Ok, so I've done this change and it's been working really well.  But, like I said, I still need to change my product list on every form every time I need to update it.  I've been playing with an idea and can't work it out exactly.  What I want to do is calculate my product purchase total on my main form (using the purchase order payment wizard).  Then, when my customers choose a payment type, I'd like to set it up so that the purchase total field from the main form copies into the total field in each different payment form.  I know there's a way to do this, and I've almost got it, but I think I'm missing a step. 

    Here's my main form:
    https://form.jotform.com/71653533220246

    Here are my 3 different payment forms which I currently have integrated into the first form:

    This might be possible with prepopulation by URL parameters and thank you page redirect conditions.

    Please feel free to test the next form to see it in action:

    https://form.jotformpro.com/72223986306964

    Form Calculation widget field is used to capture total amount, and Unique ID to create an order ID.

    Then, values are forwarded to the payment forms using conditions.

    https://form.jotformpro.com/72224420706952?myProducts[price]={total}&orderId={uniqueId}

    https://form.jotformpro.com/72224210306945?myProducts[price]={total}&orderId={uniqueId}

    I hope it helps.
