    Hi,

    Form Templates > Point Of Sale Form ...

    Looks nice ... would like to use ... here's my clone for simplicity: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/21734754123955

    Can you advise on how a customer of mine would purchase the Anti-Flame Shirt and Anti-Flame Short as per given in your e-commerce examples.

    Of course I don't want them to go through two checkout processes so I'm obviously missing something.

    Would you be kind enough to give this a quick glance

    Thanks Mark

    Jeanette,

    The purpose of my question was to establish how a person would purchase the Anti-Flame Shirt and Anti-Flame Short simultaneously from the template that Jotform provides.

    Unless I'm mistaken the point of sale form is flawed because all the products on the form cannot be purchased in one purchase. It is possible I'm mistaken, but it appears that one can only buy sub-sets of products and would have to do multiple transactions to get everything they wanted from this "shop"

    Respectfully, if the above is correct it is unworthy to go to market as it will cause more trouble than its worth ... with everyone abandoning the process and complaining.

    However, I'm sure I'm missing something somewhere ... but the guide that you have provided .. does it have the answer to provide multiple purchases in one transaction as per my orginal intention.

    It just appears to present a solution to add another checkout option ??

    Thanks, Mark

    @Mark

    Hi, as is, the POS template was setup to demo only how a multiple type of payment fields can be render in a single form. Yes, the creation was a bit complicated and was aimed for advance webmasters to see how the template can be improved further also.

    And you are correct that, as is, -- the template will not allow you to purchase both the shirt and the short in a single checkout process. But this limitation is kind of aesthetic only... it just so happen that the items where not combined into each payment form when the template was created.

    Please try check this form, I combine the shirt and the shorts in the paypal mode of payment. I can now purchase them in single check-out process.

    The template can be modified to alter the items to preferable setup of the seller.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    Thanks.

    Hello Mark

    In addition to what my colleague (who is also the guru behind this form)  is advicing you. I think the form is not trying to have a function of a shopping cart. But it will allow webmasters for small companies websites to show their product and provide different  methods of payment

    I have done my form, with another example,  please choose the last two options(antiflame and deadpool shorts)  , and it will  show the user the option to choose a payment method, to  either pay  through standard Paypal or Credit card (in the case the owner of the form doesnt have a Paypal pro account), while still showing the pictures of the product.

    Cheers!
