Mix standard and recurring?
Sometimes, you want to have both standard and recurring payments as options on the same form. This can be accommodated by both the Free and Pro add-ons, with a little care.
The Free add-on uses a special Recurring field for recurring payments. By adding that field and making it visible, any charges will be sent to the Recurring Payments gateway for automatic recurring payments.
The Recurring field can be made conditional, like many other fields in Gravity Forms. Here, we’re making it conditional on another field (say, radio buttons) having the value “Recurring”:
Conversely, you can add a Product field for standard payments and make it conditional on the same field not having the value “Recurring”:
The Pro add-on is a little different. Instead of having a special Recurring field, it lets you put together regular fields to build your recurring payments configuration — ultimately much more flexible than trying to shoehorn it into a special field. You can have the one Product field and use it for both standard and recurring payments. You can still show/hide fields just like above.
Next, you create two feeds to send the transaction details to eWAY: one Direct Connection or Responsive Shared Page feed, and one Recurring Payments feed.
You can then set each feed to be conditional on a field in the form, just like above:
If you use a Responsive Shared Page for the standard payments, you will also need to make the Credit Card field conditional, because it isn’t needed for Responsive Shared Pages:
