How to use inventory widget and transfer calculation to PayPal Pro

    I am having an issue with this form:

    I want to have the total in my calculation field be transferred into the Total amount for the PayPal Pro integration.  This wasn't a problem in the past, there is an option in the PayPal widget that says "Get Price From" and I would link that to my calculation field.  Now it is not letting me change that from the one option of "None (manual)."  I also tried using conditions to transfer the amount from my calculation field to the total, but this is not working when I open the form.  The calculation field is working fine.

    I was able to use these same features to do this same function on this form:  So I do not know why it is not working now.

    I need the inventory so I can keep track of sales and demand.  This is a benefit event and the ticket price is fully tax deductible, which makes it a donation.

    Thanks for your help!

    I have cloned your JotForm to my account and see that the calculation is being done on a textbox field using conditions. You may consider using the Form calculation widget to perform the calculation.

    You may set the calculation using the widget as mentioned below:

    Also, in order to pass the calculation value, it is required to be a calculation field to select in the payment field. 

    Please refer to the guide below that can help you with passing the calculation to a payment field.

    The conditions set to calculate the total can be removed from the form.

    Hope this information helps!
