    The easiest and simplest way to do this is to use conditions.

    What I would do is to set the PayPal field as required, but then hide the PayPal option if the radio option is not selected to make the payment over it.

    So basically what you would need to add to your form is a simple radio button that will allow your users to choose if they want to make the call to make the payment or to use PayPal and make the payment right away instead.

    Then just use the show / hide option in our conditions to shown the option matching their selection.

    You can see more about this here: How to show or hide a field in the form based on the other field input or selection

    Of course, if needed, we are also here so do let us know and we would be happy to assist :)
