How do I have the option for Paypal & Google Checkout on the same form?

    Asked on March 30, 2011 at 03:13 PM


    I was wondering the best way to have both the Paypal & Google checkout on the same form? Do I just have 2 seperate buttons (one for paypal & one for Google checkout?) Or do I have a radio button that will decide which direction the form will take them?

    My forms are located here:

    I currently have 2 forms (both have Google checkout with them).

    Also, how do I upgrade my package to the 9.95 package?

    Thank you,

    Hi Shaun,

    Currently, each form can only use one payment tool. You cannot have multiple payment tools working in a single form to avoid conflicts in the backend. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Thank you for using JotForm!

    I notice that you now have 'Purchase Order' as an option. I have a registration form that gives the user the option to select payment by PayPal/credit card or electronic funds transfer/cheque.

    Since the Purchase Order has no backend to worry about, is there another way to integrate this into the same form as PayPal (or another of the supported payment providers)?

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for your feedback. At this time, it is not possible to offer two or more payment methods in a single form. It has not been tested yet, that's why we have not released it for now.

    But I shall forward your suggestion over to our programmers to see if it is possible to make the Purchase Order payment option available along with another payment option (i.e. Paypal, 2checkout, etc.) in teh same form.

    In the meantime, if you're in a hurry, a workaround that might work for you is to create two separate forms, one accepting purchase orders, and another accepting another payment type. And create two hyperlinks in your website leading to these two forms, such as "click here to pay using PO" and "click here to pay using credit card" It is primitive but it will allow you to accept more than one payment methods right now.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Thank you. I will try and work around it for right now. I may add the "option" button you talked about and forward this to each individual sheet per payment option.

    Again, thank you for your awesome service. You will help our walk-a-thon succeed!!!!

    All types of payment integration with Jotform work almost exactly the same, the difference being the payment gateway that will handle the transaction. Like the example purchase order form which I have shown you in another thread, Paypal integration also offers the ability to show total price of items selected.

    To achieve that, just be sure to tick the checkbox that says "Show Total on the form" when you run the Paypal Payment Wizard.


    Let me know if you have further questions regarding that.
