    Unfortunately, only Basic fields can be filled using URL Parameters. Widgets and Payment elements don't allow for prefilling.

    If you need to use prefilling on your products, you might employ basic fields for them and later pass the value to a payment element.

    I hope that helps.

    If you wan to separate products from address, you can create:

    1). Address field

    2). Checkbox, Radio button or Dropdown field for product options.

    3). Pass the total value to a form calculation field

    4). Assign the form calculation field to your payment field

    You would have to use the basic fields to be able to use the URL parameter.

    However, you will not be able to use the quantity field. You would have to separate it as a number field or dropdown.

    Then you may assign values or manually calculate the total using the form calculation widget.
