    For your dropdown items and radio buttons, you need to assign calculation values to them, aside from what is currently displaying on the form. Here is a guide on how to add calculation values on to your fields: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    Next, on your form calculation field, set the formula which fields you want to add. Next modify your Paypal field to get the value from the form calculation field. This way every selection made by the user shall be added to the Paypal field. You can check this guide for more information on how to make it happen: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field

    Once properly done, it should fill the Paypal field with the proper amount on your form. If you need assistance, please do let us know.
