    Is it possible to create an order form that will tally the prices of items selected and send that total in an email?

    Asked by Meghna on July 05, 2013 at 10:25 AM

    I'm looking to make an order form (hosted) for produce that will enable customers to check off the produce they want from a list. Once they hit "submit", I'd like the total cost of what they checked off to be emailed to me or sent in a report. Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    Hi Meghna,

    Yes. This is already the default feature of the Purchase Order field.

    Please review this guide Setting-Up-Your-First-Order-Form to have a better understanding of the concept.

    And the email how to should also help on the email part 

    Setting-Up-Email-Notifications

    Hope this help. Please contact us again anytime if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.

    Thanks so much, Jonathan. Follow-up question: do I actually need to select a payment option in order to access this feature? I'm not looking to collect payment using the form, only get the orders… hope that makes sense!

    Hi Meghna,

    The Purchase Order field will not require or collect payments, just orders.

    Those that collects payment are like Paypal.

     

    Thanks.
