    Building first Ecommerce Form on JotForms.  I originally put everything into the Inventory Widgets (Products and Max Quantities. )  Now, I am trying to add the Payment I set up.  It is asking me to re-write each product, but has no way to count or add Max Quantities.  Will it see my Inventory fields and be able to count down inventory, or do I need to add inventory after Im done wiht the Payment Wizard?

    You have to calculate (calculation widget) the inventory widget in the form. See this sample equation in the calculation:

    The left and right bracket mean to get the total price first of each inventory widget in the form. 

    Here's our guide on how to calculate: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form.

    To pass the total amount to the Payment field, you need to configure the payment field to get the price from the calculation. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field. You do not need to setup the product items again in the payment field configuration, just the total of the inventory widgets.
