    How to add a tip option in payment tool?

    Asked by abdur606 on May 23, 2017 at 02:06 AM

    What if the payment varies for square? How can I add a tip option? Also how can I get the Credit card info for later use because we usually charge the credit card on the day of service.

    Hello abdur606,

    What if the payment varies for square?

    I am not sure if I have understood this. You will be adding the products/services listed in the payment tool which will have a fixed amount or special pricing but it won't change right?

    I would suggest you to use regular form fields (single / multiple choice) to list your products/services and (textbox) for tip amount. You can add "Form Calculation" widget to calculate the total amount and pass the calculated amount to your payment question. The following guide should help you how to pass calculation value to payment question:  https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
