    I am wanting to make a black friday deal and use an order form. If I'm offering multiple items but a limit of up to 3 mix and match of those items. Is this possible?

    I'm guessing you will be selling more than 3 items (e.g. 10 items in total) and you only want your users to select up to 3 at most, is that correct?

    Your approach will highly depend on this question - Will you be collecting payments or you're just collecting their order details?

    🔘 If it's just the order details, then use the MULTIPLE CHOICE field (checkbox). This field will allow you to add as many items you want and also allow you to set a MINIMUM / MAXIMUM number of options that your users can select.

    🔘 If you will process payments, you would need to use a payment processor that we integrate with. With the same idea above, use a MULTIPLE CHOICE field to add your items then set the ENTRY LIMITS upon your discretion.

    In addition to that, you also have to assign CALCULATION VALUES to each item.

    After assigning a value (or price) for each, use them to calculate the total inside the FORM CALCULATION WIDGET.

    Lastly, you have to pass this calculated total to the payment processor you have chosen to use.
