How to: Form that has both $0 and paid optionAsked by SMUJotForm on February 21, 2014 at 06:34 PM
We have an event that we need an RSVP form that will allow the attendee plus one guest for free, but if the attendee is bringing additional guests will charged $25/guest.
If we create a payment form (we use Authorize.net) with one option of $0 and additional guests at $25, will the attendee who is coming at the $0 level (themselves and one other person) be forced to fill out the credit card information? Or does will the form recognize that a payment doesn't need to be submitted, just the attendee form data.
Does this make sense?
Thanks, as always,

This indeed helps. I just created a test form which performs as desired: if it's free, the form just returns the thank you. If there's a charge, it processes to the payment gateway.
