Paypal Payment Tool: Set how many days/weeks/months/years the subscription billing cycle should stop

    I run a website that sells a Lifetime membership for $200.

    However, most people can not or will not pay that amount in one lump sum.

    So we currently offer them the ability to be billed at $20 a month for 10 months and then done!


    Normally I do this by creating a subscription button in Paypal and set it to 10 equal payments after which the billing cycle stops.

    I can not do this using JotForm because you guys have failed to put in a parameter for PayPal Pro Subscription payments to be set to expire billing after a set amount of billing cycles.

    Please add an option to set how many days/weeks/months or Years the billing cycle should continue for so the customer won't be billed after the payment term is fullfilled.

    So, for example if my customer expect to only make 10 monthly payments of $20 each, then the billing should stop once the 10th payment is made!

    No option exists for this with PayPal payment option.

    Also I'd like to have a payment page that has BOTH purchase and subscribe options. That way I can have the option there for people who want to make a single payment for a lifetime at $200, on the same page with the subscription option for 10 monthly payments.

    We do not have such option currently but I have forwarded this to our developers so they can consider this in the future updates. I could not provide any ETA since feature request comes with priorities and we are not privy to what has been worked on. However, once it is added you will be informed on this thread.

    Thanks for using JotForm!

    We have implemented an option to limit the number of payments a subscription charges.

    Please do test it out and let us know what you think.

    Kind regards
