Payment Installments in FormAssembly

Last Updated: Jun 28, 2018 08:56AM CDT
When creating payment forms with FormAssembly, you may wish to offer your users the option of paying their contribution in installments (multiple payments). To do so, you will need to map the payment amounts in the connector and then separately in the Salesforce connector.

It is imperative that payment amounts and installments be correctly configured in order for them to post correctly in Congregation Connect. Since the connector and the Salesforce connector run separately, the form needs to be setup in order to handle installment. The only supported practice we offer is to divide installments into 2, 4, or 10 payments. Please note that FormAssembly does not support semi-annual payments through This will ensure that the payment amounts (and any applicable credit card fees) will divide correctly in both and Congregation Connect. Connector: In this connector, the Gateway Amount should be used to map the payment amount to This value is the total amount to be charged in a single transactions. If you are also charging a credit card processing fee, the Gateway Amount should include that portion of the payment.

For example, say you have a $100 donation to be paid in 4 quarterly installments. As well, there is a 3% credit card processing fee which brings the total amount to $103. The Gateway Amount will be $25.75. The subscription schedule and frequency will determine when this payment should be charged (4 times, every 3 months).

Salesforce Connector: In this connector, the payment plan will be mapped directly onto the Invoice record. When the form is submitted, Congregation Connect will divide the contribution into the installments designated. In order for this process to work correctly, please ensure that the following fields are mapped.
Amount: The absolute total of all installments plus any credit card processing fee. (Using the above example, the Invoice Amount is $103.)
Payment Duration: The payment plan for this Invoice (Monthly, Quarterly, Annual - in this example is it quarterly)
Number Installments: The number of times this payment will be charged. (4)

Subscription ID: This is captured from the submission and entered as a formula %%AUTHORIZE_DOT_NET_SUBSCRIPTION_ID%%
Form Transaction Amount: This is the contribution amount without any credit card fees.

If there is a credit card processing fee, these fields need to be mapped as well.
