    Can I show the order total in the form ,and give the customer the option to make the purchase or the option to submit the order without paying but I still recive all the information that they entered such as name , number, item they would like to purchase without sending them to another form?

    so for example after entering there name , phone number and etc , they click on a product that cost $100, the form shows the total purchase price, I would like to have 2 buttons  , one button to make the purchase now, and a second button that would say something like (submit your information now and we will give you a call back to complete your order) even if they use the second button ,I would like to recive all the information.

    anybody Know?

    Thanks for your message.

    Unfortunately you can't have two different submit buttons in a form with different functions. All submit buttons in a form works exactly the same.

    However, this is doable with JotForm though it may involve two different forms. A workaround I could think is to use two different form e.g. main form and payment form. Now, you can combine both forms by embedding the payment form to the main form using it's iframe embed code on the Free Text HTML tool. However, both submissions will be totally different. You can't combine notifications from two different forms. Therefore, when the user submits the payment form and then later on he submits the other form, a payment nofitication will be sent separately to the other form notifciation. In other words, you will received two different email notification.

    Here's how to combine embed forms,

    1. Get the 2nd form's iframe embed code.

    2. Add Free Text HTML tool to your main form and paste the payment form's iframe embed code.

    Make sure each form contains each submit buttons.

    Thank you!

    Hi Joe,

    Do you mean, if the user submits the products that he is planning to purchase, he will not be able to fill again the form instead he just need to continue with the previously submitted data? If so, this is possible with {edit_link}, here's a more detailed guide: Though, I'm afraid it will break down the combined form since the user will be redirected to the actual form instead of the form where it's embedded.

    I would suggest to give it a try and let us know if you come across any issues. Thanks!
