    How can I integrate my "FatFreeCart" with my form?

    Asked by Soleliberty on January 05, 2013 at 02:28 PM

    Hi,

    I find this platform to be a vey useful tool. However, I've been trying to find a way to let my users make payment according to their choices. The payment tool available cannot be used for what I want to do so I'm trying to integrate the "FatFreeCart". The problem is, when a user clicks on the add to cart button it automatically makes a JotForm submission. What can I do to not let this button operate this way? Or do you have another solution?

    You can take a look at my form here: http://form.jotform.us/form/23655395865165.

    Hi,

    JotForm does not integrate with FatFreeCart. There is no means to use the code into JotForm -- this is the reason the add to cart button does not work.

    I checked the process of using the FatFreeCart add to cart button, it requires a javascript script pasted into the form -- which will not do because JotForm will strip any other javascripts embedded into it.

    But can you please describe to us how you wanted the payment choices in your form? Perhaps it is already doable using the form builder and its payment tools as is.

    Thanks.

    I wanted the user to state their pick-up location (State, City, zone) and their drop off destination and pay the rate based on their choice. I could make all rates for all choices available but that would make a veeeeeery long form. I don't see a way to collapse products and show only the ones that match the user's choices.

    Maybe there is something I'm overlooking so let me know.

    I understand it can be a very long form if we set a rate for each start-end location (State).

    The only possible way I think you can achieve this is, if you set a rate for each state in a dropdown field -- each state equals to a value(rate), then, everytime a state is selected there is a value(rate).

    If you can have means to host your own web page, you can use the form's source code and inject custom javascripts function to it, to be able to compute the rate base on selected dropdown field(State)

    You can actualy shorten the form (with a very long list of products) -- again using the form's source code... something like this form 

    Please inform us if you have more input/ideas.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, that sounds like it would work. I don't know anything about javascripting though, so until I find someone to help me, I will use this current update.

    You can view my form again and let me know what you think.

    PS. For "one way job", the choices are New York - Manhattan - Manhattan 1 for both Pick up and Drop off.

    Thanks for that details.

    We'll see if we can find a workaround to achieved that but we can't promise anything. I will wait on what my colleague, Jonathan will be able to come up with. Honestly, my knowledge on javascript is limited so hopefully Jonathan will be able to start an easier one so I could contribute somehow. 

    Thanks!
