    Hello Santiago,

    No, unfortunately our payment fields are not really designed to collect payments in the manner you describe. They are for recurring charges which continue until a subscriber cancels.

    Do you guys have any tips on how to add this? I'm trying to build a form that would allow for a one time donation or a subscritpion of monthly donations.

    I was thinking that perhaps I could have a form with two Iframes and a choice to choose between one time or monthly donations.  If they choose one time donation, the iFrame woiuld display a form setup for one time donation.  If they choose montly, the form would display a form with a subscritpion option. Thoughts on this?

    Hello chiseled_images.  Currently the Paypal installment feature is not yet available in JotForm.  I have submitted a feature request to the development team for an integration of this feature for Paypal tool.  Unfortunately, I cannot give assurance that this can get implemented anytime soon as our development team is quite busy working on other important things.  But once this feature is implemented, we'll surely let you know.
