    Hi - I'd like to set up a donation form that has the following elements:


    - radio buttons with several donation levels, and one that allows them to put in their own amount.

    - then a checkbox below that saying 'recurring donation' which then presents them with options for monthly, yearly, etc.


    So it's all one donation process with the user selecting their preferences as they go.


    I have Paypal Payments Pro.

    Just to be clear, I would like you to know that the payment form option Custom Donation/Payment and Subscription Payment are two different thing.

    If you will use Custom Donation/Payment, there is no means to make it a recurring donation/payment. Custom Donation payment is a one time process.

    BUT if you will use the sell Subscription Payment option similar to what was described on the user guide , there is the option to make it a recurring payment option.

    the one thing that is lacking in Subscription Payment option is that you cannot use custom amount input similar to Custom Amount/Donation.

    If you need to have both feature, you will need to use 2 different form instead and then use conditions that will allow the form respondent to only use 1 of the 2 available payment method.

    Hope this help. Inform us if there is more we can assist you with.
