    Hi, is there a way to setup a form to calculate how much a person will be charged with PayPal depending on what was selected throughout the form? But to do it in a way that they're not selecting line item products directly, they're just filling out our form.

    It is a request form. Depending what they fill out will tell us how much it is going to cost.

    Yes, it is possible to implement such functionality, you only need to add your form questions as normal, you could use either radio buttons, check boxes or drop downs in order to display your options. 

    You could also add a calculation value to each option, once it's been selected its value will be included in the calculated formula. 

    Please check this guide in order to get more details about how to assign calculation values to the options in a field: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    This guide will help you performing the calculations on your form using a widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-Using-a-Widget 

    And the following guide will help you to pass the calculated amount to the payment field: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field 

    This guide will also help you to integrate your form with PayPal: https://www.jotform.com/help/391-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Paypal 

    Here is also an example about how calculation works, each option you select in the drop down will assign a value to the widget at the very bottom: https://form.jotformpro.com/71846537938977 

    I hope this helps.
