    How to use Gift Registry widget with Paypal

    Asked by PensacolaMESSHall on December 11, 2014 at 03:10 PM
    Looks great, though I am also wondering if it can interface with PayPal
    payments or they have to choose the program in the "gift registry" and
    again in Paypal.

    Please check this demo form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43446251392959 and let us know if this is what you're looking for.

    I used conditional logic to set a price for each item in the gift registry widget and insert it into hidden text fields.

    Which I used to calculate the total amount using a calculation widget.

    And finally passed this amount to the Paypal payment tool.

    If it works for you, feel free to clone the form into your account.

    Oh so close! Any way to work it with Quantity Gift Registry? Folks can sign up for multiple of the same class, so I was liking the quantity gift registry. I tried to see if I could figure out a way but failed.

    Thanks for all of your help.

    Unfortunately, I don't think this could be accomplished with the Quantity Gift Registry widget using only the form editor, since there's no way to retrieve the selected quantity.

    In this case, you'll need to use the full source code of your form and create a custom script to pick the quantities entered in the widget to make the calculations based on the quantity and the selected item.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Thank you.

    Can I apply a coupon (discount for members) to the amount? It seems that as a donation it won't let me, but I don't think I can switch to the Products category it doesn't say "Get amount from "Total""

    You can achieve this by providing an additional input textbox in your form that will function as the coupon.

    So, if the user provided a correct coupon/code, you can add a discount calculation base on it.

    Depending on your setup, my suggestion in theory will be like this

    Total Payment = Total Amount - Discount Amount(base on calculated discount coupon)

    The original Total computation before you pass it the Paypal Amount should be calculated already with a discount.

    The final total payment amount in Paypal should be discounted already.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance doing this.
