Pay-by-check option AND PayPal

  1. New to GF. Just installed the new beta & PP and have some questions.

    Is there a way to set it up so someone can choose to print and mail a check instead of paying via PP?

    Is there a way to use a custom button graphic?

  2. The PayPal Add-On is strictly for integrating with PayPal. There is no option for printing and mailing a check. It's an online payment processing add-on so it's focused on processing online payments.

    By custom button graphic are you referring to the Submit button? If so, yes, this is configurable. Edit the form you want to edit to go to the form builder, go to the Form Settings (link at the top of the page) and then choose the Advanced tab. There is an option to change the Submit button text or use an image. If you use an image then you have to give the full path to the image.

    Documentation on Form Settings can be found here:

  3. Thanks Carl. I vaguely recall that option to add an image now that you mention it.

    As for the pay by check option... I'm trying to see how I can work around that. The client doesn't want to FORCE folks to use online payment. Can I just have two buttons at the bottom? Or...I know... I could have click here for online payment to one form with PP and click her to complete form to mail with check and it would be a copy of the form but with my own print/submit button. That'll probably work. I'm just wondering how others handle this? Or is this a very odd need?

  4. We can take a look and see if we can add a conditional option to the PayPal add-on so that a certain condition has to be met for it to execute the PayPal functionality (ex. they have to select "Pay By PayPal" from a dropdown or radio button for instance). This would probably do the trick. We will add it to the list for the PayPal Add-On and see about getting it in before the final release.
