    I am inquring if it is possible to have a 3 step form where the steps correlate with each other?

    For instance:

    I am developing a online printing site, where customers chose thier product (business cards, flyers, yard signs..ect), pay with credit card (I am signing up a mechant account with, then upload thier files for me to print.

    I would like to have it where whatever the customers selects in the option menu's on step 1, like 500 business cards for example, I can display the price total of 500 biz cards on step 2, when the customer pays.

    Is there some type of option of "when the customer selects THIS option" on step 1, Step 2 will display THIS"..

    I seen a templete in your colection that almost achieves this, but it dosen't have payment info in it and dosen't communicate between then step slike how I am inquiring.

    Thanks Eduardo for getting back, (This is Don Melson who asked the original question by the way, I just signed up)

    Your example is pretty close to what I mean. Wow, Your page 2 nails it!

    What Im looking to acheive is a combination of your example form and this templete one I seen from the user Vaibon  

    The fuctionality of your form, and the look of this templete (mainly those step buttons at the top)

    The current question Im left with is there a way for me to implement instead of Paypal? With the price total from Page 2 submited to page 3?

    From my understanding a gateway will process the card while keeping the customer on the form.

    Or do I have to have product options and payment processing on the same page?

    Hi Don,

    What you cannot do using only the form builder, is to put the total elements into the next page. The payment field can only be contained on the same page all the time (you can see this, since after the items is the total element)

    You can extract/split the payment field (items/products in page 2, then, total in page 3), if you will use the form's source code because you can then modify the html source of the form. But this is not highly recommended as it will require more knowledge in modfiying the html codes.


    The current question Im left with is there a way for me to implement instead of Paypal? 

    Yes, you can change the paypal to It will still retain all your products.

    The payment process will be triggered only after the form is submitted. So, the payment is usually outside or after the form (another page)

    Hope this help. Do inform us if you have further inquiry.
