PayPal Integration: Improved Donations & Discounts

We started the new year with a number of updates to FormSmarts’ Advanced PayPal Integration.

Mix Donations & Regular Payments

FormSmarts now allows you to accept both payments for a fixed amount (e.g. membership renewal, registration fee) and donations (which amount is chosen by the contributor) on the same form. This feature is typically aimed at non-profits that would like to collect contributions on their membership form or when taking online registrations for an event. Feel free to try this demo.

Add a Promotion Code and Discount to PayPal

More Flexible Discount Codes

A discount code can now cover the whole amount of the transaction. This would come useful on an event registration form: some attendees to whom you have given an offer code will be able to register for free, while the bulk of delegates will have to pay.

SuperCart Update

In line with this change, we’ve also updated SuperCart to allow free registrations (or any other type of transactions) as part of a SuperCart session. So non-paying delegates can be registered at the same time as paying delegates, within a single SuperCart session.

Hi Larry,
To create a registration from with a fixed amount fee, add a set of radio buttons named Fee with a single option:Registration Fee ($100 USD)
Then click the icon showing a pen in the Forms Tab to launch the Form Details screen. Change ‘on Submission’ to Integrate with PayPal. Find out more here.
