Accepting Donations through, more detailed Q

  1. Hi-
    I'm setting up a WP site for a non-profit that already uses to collect donations, and I'd like to duplicate their donation form using GF, but can't figure out how to make the 'Donation' option for payment type show up, as it lists in the Tooltip help (screenshot:

    I'm fine using 'Products/Services' if that's the way it should be done, but if there used to be a specific Donation option, why was it removed? Does the developer plan to remove references to it in help files? Seems like the process may have changed without documentation being updated.

  2. You would use Products and Services as the option for a donation if it's a one time donation. Our Authorize.Net documentation is here and I don't see where it mentions Donations:

    "Select the Authorize.Net Transaction Type. You can choose from Products and Services which is a single one time payment, or Subscriptions if you have enabled Authorize.Net's Automated Recurring Billing option."

  3. Thanks, I'll do that. The mention of donations in the tooltip help to the left in the screenshot.

  4. So if we want to offer both types of donations would we need to create 2 different forms?

  5. I've got the same question as endtimeministries. I'd like to use a single form to offer one-time, recurring, and split-entry donations. It's not looking very possible unless there's a way to pass custom fields to

    I also would like to be able to do this. People should have the option to choose if they want to make a one time donation or a recurring donation.

    Any suggestions?

    I also would like to give the user an option of payment type (one-time, recurring).

    In addition to that I want to have each form go to a specific account. (i.e. one for donations, one for application fees)

    Is that possible?
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  8. If you want to have options for one-time or recurring, just setup the appropriate fields on your form and then multiple feeds that are tied to the same form and enable conditions on each of the feeds appropriately to follow the options on your form. So if the user chooses one time donation that feed kicks in, if the user chooses recurring donation, that feed kicks in.

    I've just tried using the multiple feed method to sell 2 different subscription plan levels through the same form (1 annual @$99/yr and 1 monthly @$8.25/mth), however only one feed works. When a user selects the annual plan, the payment goes through just fine, but when they select the monthly plan the form fails and comes back as saying "the credit card could not be processed".

    Any idea as to what's going on here?

    to add to this, i'm basing the $ amount for each feed on the amount selected by the user, not the form total.

  11. @stefanwise - it would be much easier to troubleshoot this via priority support:

    Just submit a ticket and I can give you a logging add-on that should show why that error is getting produced.
