    You cannot enter any php script inside your form unless you copy the full source and paste it on your web page.

    To be able to view a dynamic price of your selected products, you should activate the Show Total tool just above your form.  See image below:

    Hope this helps.

    tjks for all your help liyam !


    I solved this issue by choosing a different payment method,

    instead of chosing "product" i chose donation.

    The donation field ofers the user the possibility do donate the amount in eur he want's.

    After configuring my form in jorform, i use the embed source, i make the "value €" read only and then i change the "suggested amount" for the php session that gives me the right value of the reservation.


    The paypal express checkout of my site is for "vacation packages" therefor the price is never the same, always depends of chosen hotels, fight's and so on....


    That's a lot for all you help! you've been great.
