    Customized Recurring Payment Setup

    Asked by AASynagogue on December 08, 2015 at 02:58 PM

    Hi, I use authorize.net and I wanted to know if it is possible to set something up where I list various amounts such as 50,000/ 25,000, 1,000/ 500/ etc. and then once someone clicks how much they want to donate they then select over how many pay periods they would pay off this amount and how frequently this payment would occur.

    I tried to use the subscription option but I have to choose the payment period and number of subscriptions and I want my users to have the option to choose but I want to set the amount they would spend.

    Currently the Subscription type of payment does not have such custom payment option. 

    You may want to try using Custom Payment Form using the regular fields (for the amount and payment periods) and just pass the Payment amount to the Custom Payment tool.

    user guide: -How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    but the lacking for this workaround is that there will be no automated pay periods that will happen. Meaning it is not a realy subscription/recurring payment option.

    The combination of payment feature Subscription payment + Custom Payment was a well know feature requested.

    Let me forward this thread as well to our higher team support so that it can be included in the requested feature on Payment forms.

    I cannot provide you any ETA at this time, but we will notify you here for any update on the status when avaialable.

    Thanks.
