    Recurring Payments for Donations

    Asked by Eric  on August 31, 2015 at 05:38 PM
    I’m reaching out on behalf of Woodstock Academy. We are trying to set up a form with Paypal express to receive donations but are having trouble getting the system to accept recurring payments when we select it as a donation. We were hoping that you would be able to help us accept the payments, or be able to redirect us to someone who would be able to.

    It seems the form on your page has been deleted. I can see the form in your trash folder on your account.

    Subscriptions (recurring payments) and Donation are two different things with Jotform. When you add Paypal Express to your form, you will see options either to accept subscriptions or donations. Unfortunately, there's no option for recurring donation. I believe it's the same thing when you pick subscriptions.

    The payment wizard is pretty much straightforward, just follow the steps to successfully integrate Paypal Express payment on your form.

    If you encounter any problems, please let us know so we can assist you further. Thank you!
