    I am interested in learning if the PayPal ap can work the transaction flow we are using...This can be the ideal "editable" solution we are looking for. 99% of E-commerce templates do not permit multiple choices within the product selection.For Example:1. Base web site page displays 20 "families" of products.
    2. Customer selects a family radio button.
    3. New web page displays 10 individual items in the family.
    4. Customer selects radio button beside desired item.5. Radio button opens the JotForm E Commerce transaction manager.
    6. The chosen family item plus a group of optional (support) items for chosen family item appear with radio button beside of each.
    7. Customer clicks radio button beside each optional/support item desired.8. The item and optional items are "subtotaled". (STOP)
    9. How does the JotForm E Commerce transaction manager suspend this subtotal...and permits customer to return to the original index of item "families"?
    10. Additional item work flow follows this same logic...building on suspended subtotal.
    11. Given the JotForm E Commerce transaction manager can accomplish the afore defined work flow... The customer presses a "check out" radio button
    and is taken to the PayPal billing transaction.Please advise if this is a workflow this JotForm application can achieve.Looking forward to your reply... ;^)

    Hello Ed - Actually, this can be done with the Paypal field. You can add sub-products to each product option. Here's a guide for that: Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option. This will exactly do what you have mentioned in the requirements 1-7.

    I'm not quite sure what do you mean by "suspended subtotal". Note that the payment field will only process what was selected. If the user doesn't want to proceed with the previous selection, they can just uncheck them.

    I am concerned that this template does not show an additional price input
    field for each individual "option". In my case this is necessary because
    each option is a physical component for completion of the base product. Can
    I have individual pricing and image for each option?
