    If you are looking for a way to add two or three types of payment options to put in your form, unfortunately it is not possible at the moment.  You can only select one of the three (product purchase, subscription purchase, donation).  Although I have already submitted a request for this feature that you are looking for, it is just unfortunate that we cannot provide you a lead time to when this feature will be available.

    As for your other concern, I have replied to the thread already.

    If you have other questions or concerns, please do let us know.

    Hi JotFormHelper

    Regarding your penultimate post above, this can be done but the form's source would need to be embedded into a web page and edited. I will provide the solution later (hopefully, in about 10 hours time) as I have to relinquish the use of this computer very shortly and I currently have no other Internet connection at my disposal.

    Of course, in the interim one of my colleagues or another user may also give you a solution.

    Until later,

    Hi again JotFormHelper

    It turns out that there's no need to embed the form anywhere to achieve categorization of products. If you already have a payment field and want to add labels to categorize its products, the trick is to add the categories as extra products in the field and give them each a price of $0.00 (or whatever the currency happens to be). You would then use injected CSS to hide every element of those categories but their labels. The reason for setting the price of each category to $0.00 is that in case a user should click a category instead of one of the products, nothing gets added to the total.

    Here is an example of such a form and below is its injected CSS:

    /* Drops list of products below "Products" label */
    .form-input {

    /* moves products closer to each other */
    .form-product-item {

    /* positions the product selector */
    .form-product-item .form-sub-label-container {

    /* hides the word "Quantity" */
    select.form-dropdown + label {

    /* styles categories */
    label[for="input_3_1007"] {

    /* hides all elements of the categories except label */
    label[for="input_3_1008"] span,
    label[for="input_3_1007"] span,
    select#input_3_quantity_1007_0 {

    Firebug was used to determine which selectors needed to be targeted. If you need help integrating this solution into one or more of your forms, please let us know. Our team will be happy to assist you.
