    Can we have a Pay Now button that would link to Pay Pal and a Pay Later Button that would just submit the form?

    Asked by Jack Floyd on January 14, 2016 at 04:59 PM

    We would like to have a form that had the usual Name, Address, Email, etc and then have two buttons; one would be for Pay Now and the other for Pay Later.   If the user chose Pay now we would like for the form to be sent to a specified list of recipients and go to PayPal for the user to pay.   If they chose Pay Later they would then the form would be sent to the recipients without going to PayPal.   Would this be doable?

    Thank you for your response.

    Hello Jack,

    Yes, that's possible. It is a similar approach for paying by check (pay later or manually) or pay by Paypal which redirects to Paypal for the payment. To achieve this, you need to apply a basic show/hide condition.
