    How do I calculate a $ amount without using a payment module

    Asked by JFedGMW on January 27, 2017 at 01:10 PM

    The form I'm building offers the user the option of paying by check or by credit card. Clicking the "Payment Method" radio button for credit card displays the payment info which works fine. How do I display a selection of 6 items that the user can select from (either one or more items) and have a calculation total up the price for each selection. (Each selection should equal $40.)

    You first need to assign a value to each option: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    Then, you can perform the calculation with the Form Calculation widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget 

    If you finally need to pass it to your payment module, here is how: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field
