We are an association with 52 chapters. Each chapter's membership dues are different. I would like for the user to choose their chapter affiliation from a drop down menu like I have created in this form-then have their specific chapter dues choices be available like in this form. We do not want the user to easily see that some chapters pay less than others.
Do I have to make 52 different jotforms to accomplish this?

If you don't want people to see what other chapters pay . You might probably want to try a form for each chapter. Because you might try to use a form with muttiple payment options and use show/hide conditions, but implement this method, there is always a possibility someone might choose by error another chapter and then be able to see the prices

Ok, so I don't want to do 52 different forms. How do I make one form and have 52 choices of chapters each with their own 4 options of prices? I don't understand the above.

I've followed the directions from above link "then this guide" and I can get to #9. I don't understand #9. Select which payment method you want to modify. This guide selected the Basic Paypal. Where do I select it? "a" is covered up in the example. Do I go to the sidebar and click to add basic paypal to the form or is it already there? When I add a basic paypal form I have to go thru the setup and then when I'm done and I click on the box and there is no html button. Can you explain the steps better?9. Select which payment method you want to modify. This guide selected the Basic Paypala. Select the Free Text(HTML) field that have the Paypal Basic payment form.b. Click the HTML properties of the Free Text(HTML) field. This can be found on top properties of the field.

Mentioned instructions related to example form with embed child forms in it.
Here is another similar thread:
The main idea is:
1. Create your payment forms for each option:
Black Hawk College Payment Form
Carl Sandburg College Payment Form
Chicago State University Payment Form
2. Embed these forms into your main form.
Example: Get embed code of your Black Hawk College Payment Form and paste it into the Free Text (HTML) area in your main form.
Do the same for other forms.
3. Set Show conditions to show needed payment form based on your Drop Down.
Do the same for other options.
Note: When someone press Submit button on embed child Payment form, filled data in your main form will not be submitted. User will submit your embed form only, so you should probably move important fields to your child forms.
You can make some form template, and then use Clone feature to get changeable form clones.
If something is not clear, please let us know.

Hi, as what Mike_T had already described so thoroughly, please treat my response as just another view on the guide.
You should clone (https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-a-URL) the form to get a better understanding how it was created.
Here is a URL http://www.jotform.me/form/22346257706455 .9. Select which payment method you want to modify. This guide selected theBasic Paypala. Select the Free Text(HTML) field that have the Paypal Basic payment form.b. Click the HTML properties of the Free Text(HTML) field. This can be found on top properties of the field.
The guide is like this...
In the form builder, amend the cloned form.
a. Select the Free Text(HTML) that have the Paypal basic payment form
b. Click on the HTML property (on top)
c. You will then see the code of the Basic payment form (it is another form)
As mentioned in the guide, this multiple-payment form contains at least 4 forms. The code you see on the HTML field is the code of the Basic payment form. If you do the steps a,b,c on the each Free Text field on this clone form, you will see the codes for the other payment form.
Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further clarification.

I have followed Mike T's instructions and can get the same result as he did. But, I do need the extra data like name address etc to be submitted to me. I have added these extra fields to my child form http://www.jotform.com/?formID=22396420592960 but when I load the form to my website and choose Black Hawk College, the Black Hawk College child form appears, but some of the fields aren't functioning. http://www.suaa.org/2012MembershipForm.php
Maybe I should go back and create 52 different forms each with it's own payment form each linked to a list on my website. I was trying to get away from having to upload so many forms if there are changes to the forms. I thought if I had just one form with 52 child forms it would be easier, but I can't seem to make that work.
Any help would be appreciated.

Can you please explain what exactly is wrong with your Black Hawk College child form fields?
I have submit that form through your site without any problems.
- JotForm SupportMike_TAnswered on August 28, 2012 at 04:13 PM
Also, I would like recommend you to remove the Submit button from your main form to avoid wrong submissions.
- JotForm SupportEduardoMendezAnswered on August 28, 2012 at 04:31 PM
I was trying to accomplish what you described and I was able to embed different forms (independent forms with payment options – each with different prices) in “Free Text HTML” fields. I was also able to hide or show each field according to the choice made by the user with the “Conditions” option.
You can take a look and clone the following form if you would like to see how that works:
Let me know if that helped!

These are the screenshots I get when I choose Black Hawk College from the drop down menu on the form on my website. The correct child form comes up but some of the fields are missing and some are there. I've circled the problems. I am probably just overlooking a very simple step or something.

Your form looks great from my side.
First of all, please clear your browser cache and cookies, then re-check your form.
