    Splitting ONE payment tool

    Asked by bubbadan on May 28, 2013 at 03:02 PM

    First things first... I am NOT wanting to add TWO payment tools such as Paypal and Authorize.net - again I am NOT wanting to add TWO types.


    What I need to do is SPLIT a Paypal tool in to three different sections.


    Here is why and an example


    It is for reservations at a campground the system looks like this


    There are three selections in a radio type -

    Weekday Reservations
    Weekend Reservations
    Holiday Reservations.

    Each selection would open up a Conditional "Form Collapse" section  when you select the radio button beside it. (Which I have working using other types of data as a test)

    Each Conditional Form Collapse would have a PayPal tool reservation selections such as:

    Primitive Tent Site
    RV Site
    Deluxe Cabin


    Each has different pricing based on if it is Weekend, Weekday or Holiday reservations but ALL are PAYPAL.

    So 'Technically' it is ONE Payment Tool, just split between three sections.

    I am pretty good at html and css etc. and have tried to add all reservation types in one paypal tool, then fiddle with the source code, but I just can't seem to get it to work.

    Anyone have any suggestions?


    Jotform people... ALLOW more than one selection of Payment tools! After searching the forum there are many questions regarding this, so it must be something people are looking for. :)

    Even if you have to make it a Paid feature.

    This isn't possible at the moment since we do not allow multiple payment field in a single form. As a workaround, you have to create 3 differrent forms with each of them asking personal data and with different product category.

    E.g. First Form with personal data fields + paypal products

    Second Form with personal data fields + paypal products

    and so on...

    Now, create another form (this could be the 4rth form)  and embed all the 3 forms there using Free Text HTML tool. After that, use conditional logics for displaying them according to the category selection e.g. Weekly Reservations, Weekend Reservations...

    More info can be seen on this guide: http://www.jotform.me/help/182-How-to-Create-a-Basic-Multiple-Payment-form 

    You can change paypal & authorize.net as seen on this guide to the different category you have.

    Hope this still helps. Thank you!
