    Can I add products and option and charge using Paypal without using Payment gateway?

    Asked by sahba95 on October 21, 2013 at 10:09 PM

    Dear firend(s):

    I am trying to update the price on the form that I am making without using "Payment Tools"

    I have about 400 or so combinations from 4 categories. I want to let the user to see how the price changes based on the features that he/she piks from the categories. What I realized is that I need to have 400 different set-price cooresponding with different combination and set the condition so that it shows the proper price.

    After this, if the user want to purchase the good(s) then the same price on the form populated to the payment tools and enable the user to use paypal, creit card, etc. to pay.

    Is there an easier way to accomplish this?

    Your help and support will be much appreciated.

    I have checked your form and created a clone for me to check the possibilites to achieve what you are trying to do.

    I am afraid for you to be able to let the user pay for the products that you have created manually, you need to create you products within the payment gateway since you can also create options there from which you can achieve you are trying to do with the combination of the options.

    And computing for the total of the products outside the payment gateway and be charged using the payment gateway is not possible as I have tested on the clone of your form I have created.

    I highly recommend that you add products within the payment gateway instead to avoid any conflicts and confusion.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we could assist you with.
