Keep track of billable amount

    I just posted a question about customers filling in a listing form and then a billing details form ( I'll recap again.

    I have a directory website. Many of our customers want multiple listings and each listing contains separate information but both listings are tied to one owner. For example, a customers may have 2 locations - let's say ABC Shoes and XYZ Boots - and they are both owned, operated, and paid for by Alphabet Footwear.

    I want to make it possible for the owner of Alphabet Footwear to enlist both of his locations and then be prompted to pay for two listings. Assuming my previous question can be answered, the owner will be able to fill in the Listing form twice. After doing so, how can I make sure that the customer is charged the right amount (i.e. for two listings, not one).

    I think you should have a quantity option on your payment form. On the third page of the payment wizard, where you enter the product details, you can add "options" to your products. Add a quantity option so that users can choose how many listings they would like.

    There is no automatic way to change the quantity depending on the answers provided on the other questions though. So, the user has to choose is manually.
