How to Add Options to Payment Forms?

Last Update: April 11, 2017

This guide will show how to create custom items and a lot of payment options in your Payment Form. The custom payment features on this guide apply to the Payment fields in the JotForm Payment Tools.

By adding a payment field to the form, the payment integration will be enabled. Start adding options to the payment field by selecting one of the product/items in the payment field.

NOTE: You cannot add the same property option twice into a single product item.

I. Add Pre-Defined Quantity Property

1. On the selected product, click the Add Quantity button.

2. Select the Dropdown from the option. 

3. Fill out the option properties sections. The Label should describe what the payment for. The Range is the maximum number your customer can order. The default is 1 to 10. Simply change 10 if you want to increase the value. Click the Save Quantity button to finish.

If you want to add a custom pricing to each quantity sets, for example: automatically create a discount rate for a certain quantity. Simply swipe the Special Pricing Per Quantity option to Yes and set your pricing.

II. Allow Custom Quantity Input (Text Box)

1. On the selected product, click the Add Quantity button.

2. Select the Text Box from the options.

3. Fill out the option properties sections. The name should describe what the payment for. The default quantity is the number of items ordered/selected by default. Leave blank for zero(0) which is the default quantity. 

4. Click the Save Quantity button to finish.

4. Click Finish button to complete adding Custom Quantity input option.

III. Add a Predefined Property

1. Select the product/item. Click the Add Option button.

2. The available options are Color, T-Shirt Size, Print Size, Screen Resolution and Shoe Size. Just select your desired property from the Populate Options from Presets dropdown. Here's an example selection, the Color:

If you want to add a custom pricing to each property option, for example, different prices for each color. Swipe the Special Pricing Per Option to Yes. You'll see that the price column will be automatically added:

Enter your prices and the Save Option button to finish.

IV. Add a Custom Property to Item

1. Select None from the list of Presets.

2. Enter your product label and the list of options:

3. Swipe Special Pricing Per Option to Yes if you want to add a custom pricing for each of the options.

4. If you are done, simply click the Save Option to finish.

5. Click the Save Product to finish your configuration from the item.

V. Add Mandatory Payment and Default Product

Each item/product in the payment field can be mandatory and/or be selected by default. The required property makes the item/product mandatory and always selected by default. Selected by default only makes the item/product optional and can be deselected anytime.

Please be sure to always hit finish and save buttons from the wizard and form builder to save the form entire changes.

this is helpful. How do i set it up so people can order 2 of one flavor, 1 of a second? Since I am not sure how many products people will be ordering. I would be willing to list all 33 products with individual prices. Is it possible to copy and paste so I can make the list once and have it show up 7-8 times?

Is there any way to add a large number of unique discount codes rather than doing them one at a time?

I would like to be able to give 'use once' discount codes to potential new customers, but I don't want them using the code multiple times or sharing it with their friends.

Thanks for any advice.

Why doesn't the form post the product names and so on to Webhooks.

RequestBin told me, that only an array is given, which only contains:

but there I cannot get any prices, product names or quantities.
Is there a box that I forgot to check?

I m using the paypal form to add my items. I would need to add extra cost for 2nd 3rd item and so on. I think there is not the possibility to do that? If I select "shipment per item" when I select two different items i will have the shipment cost calculated twice. is there a way to customiza that?

Thank you!
