    Paypal- Validate user's payment via SQL

    Asked by thaonhupham on February 05, 2013 at 12:36 AM

    I don't know whether this is too advanced for JotForm and better fit for programming a form from scratch--- but I have a registration form for a fundraiser where I have two prices available for purchase to choose from via Paypal (Non-Attendee and Attendee Prices) The "non-attendee" price is $15 while the "attendee price is $10. 

    In order for the user to pay the lower $10 fee, I want the system to check whether that user has already registered for the general conference itself (I have a SQL table of the registered users) Is there a way where the form can check if that user is already on the SQL table of registered users before applying that amount?

    Any kind of code I can inject or is that too advanced?

    That is really an advanced function which I don't think JotForm can handle anymore. Also, that's pretty beyond to my ability. Sorry about that but I couldn't help you further with such functionalities you want. However, I will try to inform my colleagues about this but I couldn't promise anything. I'm sure they'll reply to this thread once they have an idea.
