    Need to sell "tables" for an event

    Asked by GSNYPENN on January 30, 2017 at 04:36 PM

    I have an event coming up... we give our customers an option of purchasing the whole table (8 seats) for one price or a seat at a table (a smaller price).

    We would like to set a JotForm up to take the reservations, but need to show which seats are still available to purchase.

    Thinking of something like how you purchase Tickets on line, where it shows what seats are still available on a map of the venue.

    We will use PayPal for the payments through JotForm.

    Is this possible?

    Yes, you can use the ticket purchase widget, or inventory widget, and perform a calculation based on the number of seats chosen: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field 

    And finally pass it to your payment field: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field
