    Is there another way to organize paypal form subscriptions with variables of installment plans?

    Asked by cgskillaccounts on May 20, 2016 at 04:13 AM

    Question 1: 

    Is there better way to organize the courses or subscription? Or we need to create many PayPal subscription buttons for different course picked and create lots of CONDITIONS of Show/Hide/Require for each different courses?

    I checked your form (https://form.jotform.me/61400409328448) and I see that you have multiple courses, and each of these courses have different subscriptions available. Unfortunately, there is no other method of setting up a subscription for the Paypal form. You will indeed need to use Show/Hide conditions for each of your different courses and subscriptions.

    Since you want to show different subscriptions depending on the course selected, I also believe you will need to setup a multiple payment form for this to work. To set it up, please follow this guide: How to Create a Basic Multiple Payment form.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Hi,

    I checked your form and you have a Grouped Values Dropdown for Courses and a group of radio buttons where users can choose either cash, PayPal, or cheque as payment method.

    The solution I am thinking of is you can create 7 groups of radio buttons with the following set of options

    1. cash only

    2. PayPal only

    3. cheque only

    4. cash or PayPal only

    5. cash or cheque only

    6. PayPal or cheque only

    7. cash or PayPal or checque

    The group of buttons may look like below sets.

    So that if a user selects a course, you can show one set and hide the 6 others sets.

    An example of conditions you can create are as shown below.

    As I can see that you have many options for Courses, unfortunately, this workaround might take too much effort but I hope I am able to give some idea.

    Grouped Values Dropdown is the Dropdown Widget with the course sub-options from your form.

    If you are trying to us conditions with that Widget, I'm not sure it is possible to check its value directly in the condition and take an action based on that value. What you could do is, pass the Widget value to another field, and use that field to create your conditions.

    Here is a demo: https://form.jotform.com/61404840904956

    Hi Huberson, once the *drop down value* is field - is there anyway not to
    show this field in the form? (By hiding it permanently?)

    Hi Huberson, I searched around JotForm and discovered that your default dropdown field actually contain this function to group items.

    Perhaps is good that you add this explaination inside your form field.

    it's just by adding [[group name]] to create the nested. It solves the value thing.
