    Our forms have an option to make a donation via Paypal. When the form was completed, the person submitting it received an automatic thank you reply for his donation, while in fact no donation was made. How did that happen?

    That happened because the Payment field where the donation is to be done is not set to required

    Pplease go ahead and change it and let us know if the issue still persist

     

    Cheers!

    But what if I don't want it to be a required field. It is an option. It has only happened once

    I think an alternate solution might be to use show/hide conditional logics,by following these steps

    1. Add a radio button field with something like "Do you want to make a donation?"  yes/no answer would be the options

    2. Apply the show condition if the answer is YES, to the Payment field

    Let me know if this was clear or you still need assistance
