    Can I create reoccurring donations using JotForm?


    I would like my donors to use the form to give either a one-time gift or a recurring gift.

    Can this be done on a single form? I understand a bit how to use conditions in JotForm, but I can't seem to figure our how reoccurring donations can be received.

    I am using PayPal as my payment gateway.

    Yes, that is possible here in JotForm. To do that, please follow this guide: Setting-up-a-Custom-Recurring-Donation-Form

    If this is your first payment/order form, I recommend checking our video/guide on this link: Setting-Up-Your-First-Order-Form

    I hope this information helps. If you have questions, please contact us again.

    Thank you for your response. I now understand now how to setup recurring donation. But I don't know that I got the full answer to my lengthy original question.

    I would like my donors to use a single form to give EITHER a "one-time gift" or a "recurring gift."

    Can I set it up so the donor selects "one-time gift" OR "recurring gift"?

    Yes it is possible to achieve your requirement within the existing payment tool. You can enable the "Set Custom First Payment Cost" of the payment tool. Please check the screenshot below:


    Please check the following cloned form where one time donation along with recurring payment option is added in one payment form:
