    Hello Mac,

    Is the $55 a fixed amount for each person that enrolls their students in the form? Or is the price calculated to the number of students? Let's say a parent enrolls three (3) students, do you like it to multiply with $55? 

    I see no field that asked parents a copy of the directory. You should add this in the form. 

    In your form format, I would suggest adding a field that would allow parents to select the number of students they want to enroll. Next, get the subtotal to this field by calculation widget: 

    You can then configure to show child fields based on the number selected by conditional logic:

    That way, fields will only show up when needed.

    Next, get the final total with another calculation widget, summing up the subtotal and additional copies of the directory.

    Lastly, you can pass the final total to the Paypal Checkout field, steps here:

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you so much for replying to me.
    We only charge $55 per family, regardless of the number of children they
    have. Thus, every submission should pay the $55 dollars. Then, they can
    choose to buy additional copies of the directory (or not). Thus this would
    be a choice between 0 and realistically 3. I don't see anyone wanting more
    copies of the directory.
    I need to figure out how to:
    - Ge the system to charge $55 to everyone
    - Give them the choice to buy 1, 2, or 3 directories at $5 piece
    - Add these purchases
    - Charge the total via PayPay
    A related question. When they charge this to they PayPal how will it show

    Ge the system to charge $55 to everyone — I can see that you have already added this option in your form.

    Give them the choice to buy 1, 2, or 3 directories at $5 piece — You can probably separate the "Additional Directory $5 / each option in another checkbox option and set the calculation like this.

    Then adjust the spacing with CSS:

    li#id_94 {

        margin-top: -26px;

    Add these purchasesThis is already added in my second answer. You can see the formula above.

    Charge the total via PayPal — Just make sure to set the "Get price from" is equals to "Total" field.
