    Hi, I have created a form, which is a food ordering form. I have a text entry field, where the total amount is computed. 
    How can I include PayPal payment in the check out service? I cant seem to do that. The FAQ so far has been focusing on using PayPal to build the product, instead of building the form first, then integrate with PayPal.

    Feel free to take a look at the form that I have created. 

    Thanks,

    Simon

    Are you working on this form? I inspected the form and I saw that you added your products using basic form fields and that you set a calculation to calculate a total. If you want to collect payments with PayPal, you will need to perform a calculation with the Form Calculation widget, add the PayPal payment field to the form and pass the calculation to the Payment payment field.

    Hi BJoanna,
    Nice, I am new to widgets. I was exploring some of them, they seem to be
    extremely powerful tools. Are you able to look at my form, and suggest a
    few widgets that I should use to improve my form?
    In gist, below are the problems I have with my form:

    1) Say I initially want to order 6 value set meals (VSM), and them i change
    my mind to just 3 VSM. By removing the VSM#4's entry, it does not
    automatically remove entry to VSM #5 and VSM #6. Thus in order for me to
    have just 3 VSM, i have to manually remove the entry to VSM 4-6.

    2)
    Building the summary page is also very tedious. Is there a better way to
    do this?

    Appreciate your help!
    Thanks and regards,
    Simon Yau
