Pass Calculated Value for Dwolla Subscription Payment

    Asked on March 05, 2017 at 05:24 PM

    Hey guys,

    So I'm trying to figure out how to pass my "Total Cost" field into my "price" field using Dwolla subscription payments on this form:

    Before I would use paypal's payment integration and I could set my "Get Price From" field to the "Form Calculation" widget, but right now it's only allowing me to set my my "Get Price From" field to "None (Manual)". 

    I really don't want to set an individual subscription for each available unit because I want the ability to add multiple units onto the same subscription payment and add a one time security deposit fee.

    Any help is appreciated.

    UPDATE: Unfortunately, Dwolla is discontinuing its product as of October 2018. But if you’re looking for an alternative to collect ACH payments through your forms, you can check out other great alternatives here.

    Hi Zach,

    I think there is a misunderstanding on how the custom calculation payment work. 

    #1 It will only work if Payment Type is Custom Amount or Collect Donation

    #2 Having a preset payment like Sell Subscription will disable custom amount calculation.


    Were you perhaps referring to variable price instead?

    Hey Johnathan,

    I was able to pass the value from my "Total Cost" field into the "Variable Price" field, after refreshing the editor page.

    Now I'm just having trouble with a reoccurring "invalid client configuration" error which I opened a new question for here:


    Thanks for you help,
