    Can someone fill out a form and bypass the paypal payment?

    Asked by richmondyoungwriters on December 17, 2014 at 06:40 PM

    Our Richmond Young Writers Spring Classes form uses Paypal integration, but we offer full and half scholarships and would like to offer a coupon code to certain students, so they can either pay for half of the class or bypass payment altogether. I think that the 50% off option works but people haven't been able to get the full $120 price off. Do I need to create a separate form for full scholarships?

    The payment tool will not accept a 100% of the value to be discounted, you need to always enter a percentage that is lower than 100. In this case, a workaround that I can think of would be adding a new text field that will serve as a trigger to hide the payment tool using conditional logic when the right code is entered.

    Please take a look at this cloned version of your form: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43508102155950 if you enter CODE100 or code100 in the text field that appears on the top of the form then the Payment Tool will be hidden and you can submit the form bypassing the Paypal payment.

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

    Thank you.
