    How can I add partial payment?

    Asked by renderedlengends on April 02, 2016 at 11:21 AM

    I would like to have the full payment price as a subtotal, but only 50% is due. I can't find a way to add this to my payment form.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to do that with the PayPal payment wizard at  the moment. However, you can create a Total amount field with Paypal that will get calculation from the Calculation Widget.

    Make sure to create the Calculation widget before using PayPal wizard.

    After you created your calculation widget, set the calculation you need and then change the PayPal payment option to Custom Amount Payment.

    In the wizard go to Payment options and choose the Collect Donations/Custom amount payments. 

    Make sure to change Payment purpose to the field you need.

    I would suggest you to hide the calculation widget on your form when you finish creating the form calculations and use it only to collect calculated value from it.

    You can read more about passing calculation value to the Payment option here.

    Please let us know if you need more help with implementing this solution.
