    Any credit card payments that can be processed through Square can be processed through forms.  You would simply need an extra field to add in the amount of the tip.

    You can have separate fields for both the total and the tip.  Total the two up in the a calculation field:

    Then, pass that total to your payment field:

    That would allow you to separate out the two different values.

    Yes in jot form but those 2 separate figures don't carry into square. Square just states grand total

    Unfortunately, you are correct, it would not be possible to have two custom values show separately in the payment field.  Square will indeed only be able to see the one total value.
