    How can I create a signup up fee AND a subscription fee?

    Asked by jstrategy on June 30, 2013 at 11:46 PM

    I’d like to create a form on my site where an initial signup is paid and at the same time, a monthly subscription fee is approved by the new customer, all using paypal pro. I will not be charging the monthly subscription fee until the SECOND month.


    Is this possible with Jot form? I know you can do the paypal setup but my biggest concern is the second product, the recurring monthly payment. 


    THe signup fee is $99 and the monthly subscription payment is $29.

    How about using the first payment in the subscription options? I think this would be ideal for this.

    The user will be charged on the first payment fee and billed monthly on the subscription price.

    Let us know if you have further questions. Thank you!

    We took our first payments tonight and this method double billed each person that signed up so it wasn't a fluke. Please help!
