    On my form: 53315129424955 I have PayPal widget. 

    I use a radio button for English or French option. All field for french are hidden when in English.

    I do separate calculations for English or French, which ever is showing and I have set to reset when field hidden.

    The final price for either is put into a text field called PP_Value. I have PayPal set to get value from that text field.  The value shows in the PP_Value field but not in PayPal.

    I need help resolving Please!

    Thank you, Robert

    I have checked your form and it seems like the field "PP_Value" is a short text entry field which cannot be selected on the PayPal integration, you're actually inserting the value with conditions, you would need to change this to a Form Calculation widget in order to get the total from there. 

    This guide will also help you with that: 

    If I misunderstood your question, please kindly provide us more  details about it. 

    We will wait for your response.

    I have checked your JotForm and see that the Text box field is now changed to Form calculation widget. The calculation field is also selected in the PayPal wizard. Please do not hesitate to get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you for using JotForm!
