    Hello. I have created a form that allows students to enroll and pay for our services. I have one payment section where the student selects the program they want. However, I want to add a second payment section for postage and delivery and a seperate third payment section for expedited processing. Can I just add them, is there something else I have to do?

    Hi agoldstein,

    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 perfected yet, that's why we have not released it for now. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    In the meantime, if you're in a hurry, a workaround that might work for you is to create three separate forms, each configured to accept different payment types. Then, on your website, create three hyperlinks that lead to these forms, such as "click here to pay using PO," "click here to pay using Paypal" and "click here to pay using credit card" It is primitive but it will quickly allow you to accept more than one payment types right now.

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

    I apologize as I do not believe my question was clear. I do not want to add different payment types on the same form. I want to add different sections on the form with the same payor. Meaning, one form wit a program selection section, the next section for mail costs, and the final section for expedite delivery. So in the end I will have one form with same payor but three payment sections that the customer has to complete.

    Hi Alan

    At present I cannot think of a way to achieve what you want within a single form. Also, my knowledge re: payment forms is somewhat limited because I have never used them. However, I belive the following method, although less than ideal, should be workable:

    Basically, the idea is to have three separate forms with apparent page breaks after the first two and a normal submit button on the last.

    EDIT: Alan, I\'m sorry but after considering how payment forms work, I realized that my solution, though workable with regular forms, won\'t be feasible.
