Braintree integration: Ability to enable variable billing to override the existing subscription plans.

    Their API supports variable billing which overrides whichever plans are already in there. However, it needs to be set in motion by the form system that we use - in this case Jotform. Does Jotform have the ability to work with the Braintree API to enable this option?

    Do you mean to say that the variable payments with subscription plans? Could you provide us with an example of your requirement? I see that there are Payment types available with user defined amount and collecting donations. 

    Please provide us with more information so that we can forward the thread to our backend team for evaluation.

    We will wait for your response. Thank you!

    I have a donation form that asks donors to select a predefined amount to contribute on a monthly basis.
    There are currently five or six predefined options.
    If a potential donor would like to give an amount that is not one of the existing options, I would like there to be an option called "other amount" in which they can determine the exact amount they'd like to give on a recurring monthly basis.
    Braintree have told me that their API allows for this.

    Thank you for the information. I have now raised this request to our developers. I can't provide you with an ETA for when this feature may be implemented, as it still depends on the popularity of the request. But we will let you know on this thread if there are any updates. Regards.
