    Hello, Unfortunately I don't think or know of a way that this would be possible automatically. The only way around it can go in two directions. The problem and reasoning behind this is because the Payment Integration is designed to redirect and accept payment for the transaction after the submission is submitted so therefore because of that fact it will be a little tricky to do this.

    One Way - Being that you could do this if you made two separate forms with a form to submit a payment and then redirect to a second form afterwards to then collect the rest of the information. But the problem with doing it this way is that it would cause your data to be in two separate forms which may not work how you want it for easy viewing. A possible solution to gather this data though to combat that problem would be to have 2 reports for each to quickly gather the data where it could be visually matched.

    Another Way - Would be that you could either create a workaround for it or get your hands dirty with some custom programming using the form's source code to rebuild it this way.
