    Unfortunately only one payment option can be integrated in a single form. What you can do instead is create multiple forms for different payment options and have those forms linked in an intermediary page.

    Something like this:

    Pay via Paypal

    Pay thru US mail

    Pay by Credit Card

    Of course these links aren't working, but I hope you get what I'm trying to say.

    If you have other questions, feel free to contact us again. Thank you.

    In addition to what Neil said, you can use Paypal Pro for your payment needs.  With Paypal Pro, you can let your users use either credit card or Paypal.  The next option that you can do is create a condition to hide/show field and have this field in alternate to another form that will give instructions how to send payment.

    You can view my sample hide/show condition in a form on this link: http://www.jotform.com/form/11203109927

    Hello nbrunzie.  I got your answer via email, so there's no need to repost anymore:


    Thanks for your answers!! They are much appreciated. I have tried adding our PayPal Pro Account to my form, but I'm having trouble finding the "signature" that is required. I have the API username and API password, but can't seem to find the signature. The person who handles our PayPal account says she's never seen anything that says signature in the account... Any suggestions here?


    To answer this concern, here's how to get your paypal API username, password, and signature:

    Click the "My Account" tab.
    Click "Profile" at the top of the page.
    Click the "API Access" link in the Account Information column.
    Click the "Request API Credentials" link.
    Select "Request API signature."
    Click "Agree," and then click "Submit."
    Click "Done".

    Write down your API username and API password information. Copy the signature and save it to a file or some other location.
