    I need to create a membership order form which looks something like this:


    Become a member or renew your membership. 

    Name ________________________

    Address ______________________

    Phone.... etc.

    Annual Membership  $30 individual                                     (radio buttons or drop down)
                                   $40 family 
                                   $60 group or business

    Make an additional gift to help construct the Mass Central Rail Trail in any amount $__________

    In Memorian:   ______________________________________________   (allow user to enter message to us)


    I  can create paypal buttons to *either*   buy something (dropdown/radio)  OR Donate (variable amount).   Right now I have these functions on two different pages (Become a member  & Donate), but my customer isn't happy with it.   I also need to be able to capture the other info (like in memoriam).

    Any suggestions?  thank you!  Rachel

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We cannot mix different payment types within one form, but we can calculate a Total amount based on user selections and forward it to the PayPal. Please see the next guides to get the idea on this:

    1) Assign prices to Radio Button / Drop Down items.

    How to assign calculation value

    2) Calculate selected plan value plus custom amount donation.

    How to perform calculation in the form

    3) Pass calculated value to the PayPal field.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Rachel, did you ever find a way around this problem?  

    I am having the same road block with the form for my non-profit's golf tournament.  I have set options for certain levels of sponsorship but we always want to be able to have a spot where they can donate any amount.

    Hi Mike,

    That is good news!   The form you demo'd for rangerevents, looks almost like what I want to do!

    I don't need multiple payment types - and as you said, I would forward the total to Paypal (or Visa etc.).


    Can I also have  a message field, "in memorian"?

    And how will I know how much the donor gave for each purpose?  Is there a way to have an email sent from jotform letting me know the details of the order, once it is complete?

    Yes, you can add additional fields, and integrate the form with PayPal. Please see the next animation.

    The question about email alerts has been moved into a separate thread.

    We will get back to you quickly.
