    To begin with, please add the fields that would be similar to the ones on the sample form as shown below: 

    1. Add the fields to your form (do not worry about styling and how the look for now). I have identified the types of fields you need to add to the form:

    The types of fields are on your left panel on the form builder:

    2. Once you have all the form fields in place, we need to apply custom CSS to the form so that it looks like the one you showed as a sample.

    We can help with this, please complete step one and get back to us, and we shall advice on the custom CSS you need to make your form look exactly like the one on that page.

    Looking forward to your response.

    I forgot to add that the payment fields are found at the payment tools seciton of the left pane of the builder:

    Those fields will help you process credit card payments on your form.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Hi There,
    I actually made my attempt at creating the form here:
    The font I would prefer to use (that matches the font on the website Im creating is OpenSansCondensed) and I grabbed that from Google fonts. I have seemed to have loaded that to the form okay.
    However, the left alignment on the donation amounts to the other field categories that appear below it seems to be off. I also like how the sample form shows all the amounts on one line - I couldnt get it to do that.
    I gave up on the narrative part as shown in the sample form and figured I could add that on the actual website with the form fields appearing in between.
    Please provide additional guidance.

    Also, if I use Stripe or payment method, how do I get that to tie in with the donation amount shown above on the sample form?

    I checked your form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/41105452482952 but I could not see the Stripe payment tool setup on it.

    I suggest you review this guide first 


    On the guide you can test the provided sample Donation form


    Please update your form following the guide. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Team Jotform,
    I still need guidance on how to create the sample form with the side-by-side portions as its shown on the sample. I believe that requires the custom CSS?
    Please advise.

    You are right, to give the desired style to your form we need to apply CSS codes. However, before we can help you with the custom CSS code you have to add a Stripe payment tool to your form.

    Using regular and plaint textboxes fields to ask for Credit Card information is not allowed in Joform, such practice could cost you the suspension of your account and we want to avoid that. It is consider as Phishing, an illegal and hurting action, doing that would be violating our Terms of Use.

    So, please remove the Fields that ask for CC information and add the Stripe tool.

    That way Stripe (the payment processor) will process the CC information. Then share with us the form URL and we will give you the needed CSS code.

    I dont have the bank information to provide to Stripe at this time. Can I still set it up without that and add it in later?

    Yes you can still use Stripe payment tool in your form since Stripe allows "Test Mode", meaning you can integrate to Stripe on Test Mode or you can provide the Test API Keys manually. Make sure to check the "Test Mode" checkbox first before clicking the Stripe Connect button above.

    Here's how:
