How can I create a custom PayPal payment option?

    I'm using collapse fields for users to choose a course or test option. Based on their choice, I wanted to have the PayPal

    form have only the payment option for their choice.


    Right now, all the choices in the PayPal form are visible.

    So, basically what you need is to hide/show the paypal choices section, right? What you can do is to setup conditions to hide the Paypal section. Take a look at this form:

    If Option 1 is selected then the My Products section will appear, otherwise it will be hidden.

    I created this condition:


    To create a condition you need to go to the Condition Wizard by following the steps in the image while in editing your form:

    Then, proceed to create the condition like the one I show above.

    Thanks for the reply.
    What you sent is not exactly what I am looking for.

    Let’s say I sell 3 products on my form and each product has a different price.
    When the user selects a product, I want the PayPal fields to open but only
    show the description/price for the user selected product, not all the products.

    I think the basic problem is that you can only have one PayPal per form.

    If you go to the url of my existing form and select a class, then select a date, the PayPal
    form that opens has options for other choices. I only want the PayPal choice to show
    what was selected.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Unfortunately the products/items of the products section of the form is not flexible enough so that you can setup conditions to show/hide just certain products of the order form and not all of them. So, the workaround I suggested before will not work for your needs. 

    However, you can still have two paypal forms (or two different payment forms) in a single one form. You can find enough details on how to accomplish that by following this guide: How to Create a Basic Multiple Payment form

    Please give it a try and let us know if that is what you are looking for or not.

    Thanks for the link, I have already looked and it doesn’t fit my need, I only use PayPal.

    Would it be possible to create separate pages of a form and then jump to a page
    that only listed a single PayPal item and price with a submit button?

    In this case, I could create 3 different PayPal payment forms with a submit button and use
    the conditionals to jump to one of the 3 pages. And, would their contact information follow
    from page-to-page?

    Yes, you can embed 3 different PayPal forms into your main form and use conditional logic to 'show' them. However, only one form can be submitted at once. It means that you will need to place your important form fields on the payment forms, information from your parent form will not be captured.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know.
