    How to have payment field option within the Gift registry widget

    Asked by painfree on January 14, 2017 at 05:27 AM

    hello, i found this form from the forum and i wanted to create something like this with mine.
    so i wanted to create checkbox like this, simple and clear but with a limits like gift registry widget.

    (because as you see i have something like this with the gift registry and it just doesn't look too tidy :(  )

    then i would like my customers to pay the corresponding fee on paypal.

    i checked the calculation widget but it just seems to be too much for my situation as I'm just doing class registration and people will want to just click the class and pay. thats it. 

    please help. thanks

    As explained already by another support on your thread here https://www.jotform.com/answers/1032373, it is not possible to combine the functionality feature of a payment field and the gift registry widget in a single process.

    You will still need to do them separately for them to work.


    #1 Create the payment/registration items using the Gift Registry widget. This is needed since you want to have the limited items/inventory feature for the products/items.

    #2 Add the Payment tool which will process the payment functionality. The calculation will be done by the calculation widget and payment amount will be pass on to the payment tool/field. 

    User guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field

    This means that the payment field will not have the breakdown details of the paid items. It will only have the to be paid total amount detail.



    To get the width of the Registry widget items wider, you can inject custom CSS code like this on your form https://www.jotform.me/form/63291000087447 


    width : 620px !important;

    thank you for the wonderful support. 

    just one last question, is it possible to only deduct the inventory for my gift registry once a payment linked to the paypal account is settled? 

    i believe it is possible that some customers will just refuse to pay in paypal after submitting the form, and i do not want that to mess up with my gift registry calculation. any suggestions? thanks
