Is there any way of adding multiple sections with products on a single order form?Asked by jmscreative on July 25, 2012 at 07:10 AM
I'm trying to create an order form for products on our wedding stationery site (I have to say I think your tools are amazingly easy to use and I LOVE your product!).
Our products are organised into three different categories - Before the Day, On the Day, and After the Day. There are multiple products within each. Customers may purchase products from all sections at once, but equally, they may wish to purchase from just one section and return for more at a later date. I don't want to bombard them with ALL the products at once, and wanted to break it down in a similar way that I have done in the following form: http://www.jmsc-weddingstationery.co.uk/order-free-bespoke-sample
Could you let me know if this is possible please?
Yes this is possible.Simply add a quantity property to your product.
1. Click the wizard icon for your payment field
2. Click Next twice until you are at the Products section of the Payment Wizard
3. Hover your mouse on the product you'd like to add a quantity property to
4. Click "Add New Option" then choose "Add Quantity Property"
5. Click Next then finish the wizard.

Lets know if you need further assistance on this issue.
Thanks for the quick response.
I've added the quantities ok, but I need to know if I can have multiple product SECTIONS within one form. For example:
List of products
List of products
List of products
So that it is broken down visually for the user, rather than one whole list.
Is this possible?
You can probably achieve this if you use the form's source code.
Add the collapsable fields (section) and products(purchase order) on your form.
Then using the form source code, you can probably edit the html form and move the products into the sections
Example, I have this form, I will try to edit the source code to move and divide the products into the section and make an illusion that the products are group/categorized.
Hope this help.
Please inform us if you need further assistance.
Wow this is brilliant. I can see LOTS of uses for this.
Thanks for the excellent sample. Putting this to work right away!
Can you explain a little more exactly how you move the products?
I cloned your form, I then added quantity to my products. It seems like when I cut the <span.... to the <br /> of what i think is andividual product - it stops the form collapse from working. If i repaste the code back the collapse works.
Maybe I'm just not clear what the exact code for a product is?
