Multiple subscription mode(s)

    I am allowing my clients to use my software for a monthly or yearly costs. How would I set this up since the PayPal addon only seems to allow one payment mode. I set the 'Price' field as a 'multiple choice' so they either could select $19 a month or $199 a year. Again, it only seemed to allow me to offer one billing more - either monthly OR yearly.

    Can I manually send users to different PayPal URLs based on the payment mode they select?

  2. Currently the PayPal Add-On only supports one transaction type per form. We are going to look into supporting multiple transaction types using the Conditional option to determine which one to execute, however it poses some logistical issues we need to work out and it may introduce user error problems because if you create multiple PayPal Feeds for one form and don't properly configure the Conditional then it isn't going to work properly. Currently it's only possible using multiple forms.

    ...and you cannot set a condition for the form submission redirect based on a users selection? or set up a multiple page form?

  4. Conditional redirects are not currently possible. It is a feature we plan on adding, conditional confirmations that can be returned based on form field values. So it is a feature we are adding.

    If you wanted to conditionally redirect the user now you'd have to do so as a customization. Create a custom PHP page that handles the redirect based on a query string value passed to it. Then configure your form to redirect to this PHP page and pass the form field value via the query string. Your custom PHP would then redirect based on the value passed to it.

    Gotta do a workaround which feels dirty, don't make me feel dirty :(

  8. Anyone know if this could be circumvented / overridden in pre-processing?

    I am having a problem with this too. I'm using the paypal_query hook to change the subscription length based on a dropdown on the form: http://www.gravityhelp.com/documentation/page/Gform_paypal_query

    The problem is $form and $entry are blank? Trying to figure out why...

    function update_paypal_query($query_string,$form,$entry){
    print_r($query_string);
    print_r($form);
    print_r($entry);
    }

    Query string works fine, form and entry are blank :/

    I've narrowed it down first. Inside the function, it's only getting the first variable passed to it:

    For example if I update it to this (paypal.php, line 1675):

    apply_filters("gform_paypal_query", $form, $query_string, $entry);

    I get the form fine, but am missing the query_string. Weird. I'm not sure why. I'm going to modify the plugin for now to compile the 3 arrays into 1 array which I'll pass to the function, if you are able to debug and/or tell me what I've missed, I'll be able to put it back to normal :)

    Any update guys? I've had to modify paypal.php on 2 sites now so that it passes all the variables across. I'm reasonably confident it's a bug and not me being blonde :)
