    Hello

    I would like to know is there any way to make a direct link between upload element and payments. I have an online art gallery, therefore the artist need to submit images for our online contest. How to set up the form in the way that the price will change automatically after someone upload more than one image. For example: I would like to put like this: if someone upload 2 images price would be $15, but if someone upload 4 images the price will raise to $30. Is that possible? Please advise

    Sincerely 

    Davor

    Hello @tonyq,

    While it is possible to see the count of uploads in a File Upload Field, it is not possible to use it as a number in a form calculation.

    The closest workaround would be to include an additional field where your respondents can type or select the number of files they will upload and you can use the entered value to calculate a total. This, of course, does not guarantee that your respondents will upload the same number of files as entered.

    However, I went ahead and made a sample form to replicate this functionality for you. In my sample form, I made each file worth $5 so each selection will multiply by 5.

    You find my sample form here: https://form.jotform.com/193507054921053

    If you would like to clone the form for yourself, you can do so using by following the steps in this helpful user guide: How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL
