    Purchase order with payment options

    Asked by fkunstct on April 06, 2012 at 11:05 AM

    I've reviewed this article and I can't figure out how to adopt it to my needs.


    My form has several options for purchasing levels of membership.  I would like to give the option to pay by check or Paypal.  At the moment, I'm using a separate form for check or Paypal.. there's got be a better way

    The problem with this solution, in your case, is that you are making use of the Purchase Order field on your 'pay by check' form. 

    Looking at the form, It does seem that Purchase Order field is essential to how you want the form to work and unforunately I can't really think of a straightforward workaround. 

    All I can think of, as a possible option, is to keep using the two different forms but have them hosted on the same page, one hidden depending on a radio option that a page visitor could click on to show either form. 

    If thats an option you would like to pursue, it would involve using a little CSS & javascript instead of the existing embed code on http://www.rpmc.net/2012-registration/register---pay-with-paypal.html (or a seperate page where both forms would be hosted). I would be happy to generate that CSS and javascript for you, just let us know if it is something you would like to try out.

    I appreciate the prompt response and offer.  If it's not too much trouble I'll take a look at it.

    Wouldn't that double the number of the fields?  The other issue is that upon submission, the check Thank You page provides directions for sending payment.

    Can the functionality I'm looking for be considered for an enhancement?

    Thanks again

    Ok, I have made a clone of your page here

    All I have done is added those radio buttons at the top to show the relevant form depending on your page visitors choice. 

    To put that on your website, use this piece of code instead of the embed code you are currently using -> http://pastie.org/3743609 (copy&paste) 

    Let me know if you want any of the formatting/layout jigged about. 


    On this other issue:

    "The other issue is that upon submission, the check Thank You page provides directions for sending payment."

    I am not too sure what you are saying here; is there some way you want the form improved to give the directions on the form/webpage itself when a person paying by check ?
