    Multiple payment options

    Asked by angusrussell on August 27, 2014 at 05:03 AM

    Hi 

    I've been reading through the forums and there is a reasonable amount of info both from Support and other users.

    However, some of it seems to conflict, and none actually tells me exactly what I want to do!

    So, I currently have options to pay via PayPal, cash or EFT. My understanding is that my current setup will not work since when people submit it will automatically default to PayPal.

    I understand the concept of creating a separate form for PayPal and embedding it with iFrame, however, it appears that I need to duplicate information in that form from the base form - can this be automated? If not it will wind up my clients; not very user friendly!

    Additionally,

    I am using the custom value for the PayPal form since I have some calculations and conditional logic involved in creating my final price. I can not see how these values can be carried over from the base form to the iFrame.

    Thanks

    Angus

    Unfortunately creating a separate form is the only way as far as I know since form only accepts one payment option and does not allow you to add more than one payment, so making a separate form is the only way to do this.

    Creating a separate form will have a separate notification.

    Your custom value problem with paypal has been moved to a separate thread as we only keep single topic per thread. Thank you for understanding.

    "Creating a separate form will have a separate notification." does this mean that I have to duplicate information in order that I know who made what payment?

    How can I do that?

    The field prepopulator widget is not working, I am not able to sign into the site via JotForm, despite already being signed in and have cookies permitted.

    I have looked through the multi-payment form, and I have created my form with an iFrame at the bottom for the PayPal, the other options of cash or bank transfer are simply part of the base form.

    Thanks

    Here's how multi payment option works.

    1. Your base shouldn't have any submit button. It should only contains radio button to select which payment option the user chose and an iframe where you embed your other forms.

    2. If you have 3 payment options then you need to create 3 separate form.

    About the notification in your multi payment form here's how it goes.

    1. If user selects paypal then paypal form will be pulled up then once they submit the notification will be coming from paypal form and not the base form.

    Here's an example http://form.jotformpro.com/form/32707586529970.

    By the way I have moved your field prepopulator issue to this thread http://www.jotform.com/answers/421075.
