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.

    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,
