    Hi.  I would like to set up the ability for people to make payments for a product rather than pay all at once.  For example if their total comes to 1000 and they want to pay over 4 months.  Is this possible?

    Thank you!

    Yes, this is possible by setting up a recurring payment option on a form. It is like splitting the total amount into installments. 

    First, this can be done by selecting Sell Subscriptions for the Payment Type on the payment tool settings.


    Then create 2 products for your users to choose from this will be their payment options:

    1.  Monthly Installment- in which the subscription should be set to Monthly and the number of payments will be the duration:


    2. One-time Payment- the subscription's duration would be 1 which means they will pay off the total amount in one month or once.


    Here's an example of the output on the form:

    Thanks for the info. 

    We are using Stripe as our payment method, and it doesn't give me the option for number of payments. 
    Is that something you can only do with PayPal?

    Unfortunately, number of payments is not available on the Stripe payment gateway. So, you would need to use a different integration such as PayPal.

    Note: if the option to set up number of payments in Stripe subscriptions is implemented in the future, you will be notified in the following forum thread:
