This is a re-post of a comment on Prepopulating Fields to Your JotForm via URL Parameters

Yes. You can do it by using the steps describe on this guide; -Prepopulating-the-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters
Here is an example using one of your form. Please click this link:
Hope this help. Please inform us if you have more inquiry.

Can pre-selecting a button be done by injected CSS within the PayPal Pro system?
- KadeJMAnswered on February 19, 2013 at 01:02 PM
Hi Karl, I don't quite think it will be possible to preselect it with css because the Input is part of the html code which is found and specified in the source of the form. Depending on how restrictive your url's are it might be possible to use it in conjuction with a custom domain for your form to get it to match though it would still have to contain the populated information afterwards to carry it over.
<option value="audi" selected>Audi</option>

Thanks, I've got if figured out.

Usimg your example above causes a button to be selected but when I click the option to pay by credit card instead of PayPal, the number of checked button is inserted in the first field.
The field "First Name" will contain "1004"
Is there a way to prevent this?
- KadeJMAnswered on April 02, 2013 at 09:16 AM
Karl, I think this is happening because of the parameter you are using at the end of it " membershipOptions=1004 ". The reason I say this is because when I cloned and removed it, the First Name Field no longer contains that information.

The technique of pre-selecting options via URL parameter to select options in payment field is actually almost obsolete.
The functionality is already built-in to the form. It is now an added capability/feature in the payment fields. Please check this guide
Among the option is pre-selecting an item, and even making it mandatory.
Could this be what you were looking for? I think there is no need to use the URL param induced method.
Please inform us should you have further inquiry.
- homelinkAnswered on April 19, 2013 at 09:54 AMNo. That's not it at all.
If I have, say, four radio buttons, I want to choose to have one of them automatically pre-selected. I do not want to add a quantity box.
- homelinkAnswered on April 19, 2013 at 09:59 AMFollow up. Pre-selecting a button is the easiest thing in the world to do with a conventional form. Just include "checked" in the button code.
I was able to do this when Netscape was all the rage. What's so hard about doing it in JotForms today?

You can now set any product into a payment integration list of products as "Selected by Default" or "Required", you can even choose both
