    Is it possible to have multiple payment options on the same form?

    Asked by ctonozzi on March 23, 2016 at 10:48 AM

    It's great that you're expanding the options! Since some of my customers would prefer to use credit card rather than bank transfer, it would be nice to be able to offer Dwolla OR Authorize.net, etc. Any given form will only allow for one payment method at this time. Any workarounds to that?

    You cannot add multiple payment integration on one form, however, we do have a workaround that you can try. Here's a guide about it: https://www.jotform.com/help/182-How-to-Create-a-Basic-Multiple-Payment-form. Basically, you'll have multiple forms and embed them on a main form where the option for payment method is shown. 

    Let us know if that works for you.

    One can do both funds transfer (with a PayPal account) and credit or debit card transactions (no PayPal account needed) via the JotForm PayPal tool.

    Yes, that is true, but only if your PayPal account is allowed to use PayPal Pro, which is limited to only few countries, otherwise a solution like mentioned by my colleague is the only available one.

    I use it in my website without PayPal Pro.  Just have a business PayPal account and use standard JotForm PayPal tool.  At PayPal, receiving business account also has to have PayPal Account Optional field checked  as well.

    Glad to hear that. It is actually not working the same for all - the PayPal landing page that is.

    Depending on various factors, PayPal can decide to allow some merchants to accept credit cards as well as payments from PayPal accounts, but in general, hen payments are done over PayPal Standard the payments are asked to be made from within PayPal account.

    For example:

    As you can see there is Purchase Protection and it is only possible to pay with PayPal account, or create one to pay - but I agree, it is possible for some accounts, so depending on some PayPal known factors, you might be able to collect credit cards directly as well even with PayPal Standard.
