    What is the simplest way to add a check or PayPal payment option?

    Asked by pwshband on May 25, 2016 at 10:10 AM

    Hi, I've read through the forum and the answers seem to be all over the place to answer this question.  I want to be able to provide users the option to either pay by check or PayPal.  

    I am using a calculated field to figure out the amount owed.  I setup a radio button to select PayPal or check then added 2 calculated fields and moved the user total to one or the other depending on what the user selects.  I then configured PayPal to use the new PayPal calculated amount.  I read somewhere that PayPal doesn't get selected if the amount is 0.  Well, it worked once and hasn't worked since.  The PayPal still works but when check is chosen it just says "Please Wait" and nothing happens.

    I noticed something interesting in the PayPal setup which is that even though I added 2 additional calculated fields (in addition to the one I was using to calculated the amount the user owes), I now have duplicates.  Thus I have 5 fields.  I've deleted PayPal and indicated not to keep products but it keeps coming back.  Just thought I'd mention it.  Not sure that is the problem.

    I am not sure at this point if this is achievable with conditions or I need to use the multiple payment option using multiple forms.

    Seems the problem was with the Thank You option.

    Yes, you are correct that the simplest way to create the option to use multiple payments can be created with conditional logic since it's not possible to add more than one payment integration to your form(s).

    Glad you were able to figure it out. :)

    Also, I'd like to mention that we have this guide here https://www.jotform.com/help/182-How-to-Create-a-Basic-Multiple-Payment-form that you can refer to for extra help with it if needed.
