    Can you still attach values to your form items? I used to be able to attach a value to certain line items and the total would be calculated and put in an invoice for payment to PayPal. I can not see where that option is anymore or if it has changed.

    As far as I understand, you would like to calculate total on a form and then pass it to PayPal Checkout payment field. This is possible, you need to set Payment Type to 'User Defined Amount'. Then, you should see an option to capture total from calculation field.

    Thank you! Can you also direct me to a support article on how to attach line item values? I used to know how to do this, but I can not find that option any more. I'm so close to finishing, I can taste it, lol.
