    I created a form with multiple options and pricing. I need to be able to apply a discount when certain options are chosen. How do I do that?

    Hello,

    You can use the Special Pricing feature, here is the relevant documentation page:

    @joanfeldman,

    If you want to add discount by the product or total price, you may consider adding coupons in the payment field. Please see the guide below:

    If you can provide us with an example of your requirement, we may be able to guide you further in the right direction.

    Thanks!

    I did that but I also want them to be able to select which months they want their ads to appear. I tried to add a "Product. Option" but it won't allow for more than 1 selection.

    Thank you for trying.

    How about the Special Pricing that suggested by @bondar?

    I checked the form you provided and it is now deleted. Could you please provide the form you're working on so we can check it further?

    I did the special pricing but with that I also want them to be able to choose which months they want their ad to be published. I can't figure out how to do both.

    I checked your form. You have a separate Multiple Choice field, which obtains "the month(s) the advertisement is to be inserted".

    Do you mean that you want to implement the months in the payment integration? So, your users will be able to choose the months from the payment field?

    If so, you can another Product Option in the product. So, the respondent will have also the ability to choose the month. Please refer to the attachment.

    In that case, you have to enable Sub Product option.

    https://www.jotform.com/help/264-Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option

    This allows you to have 12 Dropdowns with month selection. 

    I did this on the first product item. Please check.

    But then it's not giving the discount for specific quantities. I want people to be able to select the months they want the ads to appear and to be given certain discounts depending on how many ads they purchase.

    I inspected your form and I saw that you added month options for the first product. I also saw that you enabled special pricing for the quantity. Is something incorrect here?

    As far as I can see the discount is applied properly.

    I just did it and it is not showing the discount. There should be a 10% discount when they purchase 3 ads.

    You have enabled Special Pricing for the Quantity, and the discount was applied when you choose a quantity that is greater than 2. Isn't that the discount you mean?

    If you want to apply the prices in the month, you have to switch it in the settings. Disable Special Pricing for the Quantity, and enable Special Pricing for the Months. Unfortunately, you can only have one special pricing options. 

    So, with the current settings, choosing 3 from January, that is $1,336.50. Choosing 3 for February, that's another $1,336.50. So the subtotal would be $2, 673.

    I hope that clarifies these settings.

    Yes but if you put that you want 1 ad for January, 1 for March and 1 for April, the discount doesn't show up. It only shows up if you put in 3 or more for a specific month, not spread out over several months.

    I'm afraid you there is no option to set special pricing based on the total quantity of selected sub-products since sub-products each have their own quantity field with special pricing.

    The workaround I can think of to meet your requirements is to create each product outside the payment field and calculate for the total using conditions or the Form Calculation widget.

    Or, you can also create a separate product for each sub-products inside the payment field.

    I tried to do this with calculations and could not figure out how to do a percentage discount. Is there a way to do that?

    I think so. It's hard to say without trying to apply it to my form.
