    Is there a way to create a PayPal selection in Jotform that utilizes PayPal's pay in automatic instalments feature?

    Hi,

    I want to create a PayPal selection in Jotform with option to select an automated installment plan. 

    Is there anyway to make this happen in a Jotform?

    No, not subscription. Let's say I am delivering a training that costs $750. I would like registrants to be able to choose a payment plan so they get charged $150 deposit upon registration and then $300 three weeks later and then another $300 three weeks after that. So in total they will be charged $750 across six weeks.

    Paypal has this installment plan option available as a button but I don't know to utilize it in Jotform.

    Unfortunately, the PayPal Installment Plan option is not supported at JotForm.

    With the subscriptions payment type, something similar is available if you use a custom first payment and limit the number of payments.

    Example:

    That's not ideal but it's a pretty good work around.

    Thanks, I'll try it.
