Problem with drop down menu, project 3 Techdegree

I don't really care if i can share project of techdegree or not, becouse it is frustraiting, when from nowhere you get help, even if you pay and almost BEG for it... Maybe my English is not perfect.. but..


Maybe someone can tell me how i can repair problem with choosing from Paypal/Bitcoin/Credit Card, coz i tried almost everything, getting through google, MDN, StackOverflow, asked even on Slack (i did not receive valuable help).

The problem is in that : (That's like 1000000 version that i tried)

// checking payment options


// if credit card if($paymentOptions.val()==='Credit Card'){ $creditCard.show(); bullPay = true; } else{ $creditCard.hide(); bullPay = false; } });

$paymentOptionsPaypal.change(()=>{ if($paymentOptionsPaypal.val()==="PayPal"){ $paypal.show(); bullPay = true; } else{ $paypal.hide(); bullPay = false; }});

$paymentOptionsBitcoin.change(()=>{ //if bitcoin if($paymentOptionsBitcoin.val()==="Bitcoin"){ $bitcoin.show(); bullPay = true; } else{ $bitcoin.hide(); bullPay = false; } });

and that's the variables

//getting payment options const $paymentOptions = $("#payment"); //selecting default as Credit card

const $paymentOptionsBitcoin = $paymentOptions.val("Bitcoin"); const $paymentOptionsPaypal = $paymentOptions.val("PayPal"); const $paymentOptionsCard = $paymentOptions.val("Credit Card");

HTML from where i get that variables:

  <select id="payment" name="user-payment">
      <option value="select method">Select Payment Method</option>
      <option value="Credit Card">Credit Card</option>
      <option value="PayPal">PayPal</option>
      <option value="Bitcoin">Bitcoin</option>

Can you describe what the issue is? I tried the code and the select responds as I would expect.
