    Hi there, I am constructing a form where I need a coupon code to allow individuals to not put any money through the form -- we are planning on processing it separately through our machines. There is no way to do this currently, can you help me figure out how to do this?

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Joni,

    Yes, our built in Coupon Code function cannot do this. What I came up is by using our Text Box field and our Conditional Logic - that if the value provided in this text box field will correspond to the value you've put in the logic will HIDE the payment field.

    Example form (clone): http://www.jotformpro.com/form/32522195473959. In "100% Coupon Code" field put "100". You'll see the Payment field will be automatically hidden. This should NOT bring you to the Paypal Payment Page.

    You can do a twist to PREVENT individual to re-submit the same coupon code. That is by setting up limit in the form using the coupon code question. Please follow this guide: How to Set Form Limits Based on a Unique Question.

    To see it action, test the form using the Coupon Code "200" twice. In the second attempt, you'll see the Warning Message.

    Any discount either percentage or fix amount should be made using the Coupon Code function. See this guide: How To Add Coupon Code in the Payment Form

    Thanks
