    I am using forms to sign people up for tournaments with multiple possible events.  Generally, tournament pricing is something like $40 for first event, $10 for each additional event (or, another way to say it is $30 registration fee, $10 for each event).  My first attempt was to have the main form have check boxes for each event, then have a shopping cart with "First event ($40)" "Additional events ($10) [quantity]".  However, that meant a lot of dupicate work for people, and they were confused why they had to select events, then select separate payment options.  Fairly recently, JotForm has been updated so that all cart items are displayed int he final submissions, so I was able to get rid of the selection in the main form and go to "Mandatory Fee ($30)", "Event 1 ($10)", "Event 2 ($10)", "Event 3 ($10)", etc.  However, people neglected to select the mandatory fee (and there was no way I could make it "mandatory"), so I had issues with people only paying $10 and having to send them emails asking them to bring the extra money to the event.

    What I would like to see (and I've seen it on some other forms sites) is the ability to either set a mandatory fee that is charged without having to be selected or a "Setup" fee that is charged only once against any individual submission.

Please be advised that we cannot give a specific time as to when this will get completed. Rest assured though that your suggestion has been noted and is much appreciated.

    We have setup fee for subscriptions, but not for one-time payments. This thread is not entered as a feature request ticket. I also changed the title from "Feature Request" to "Order Forms Feature Request: Setup Fee for One-Time Payments as well".

    I was wondering if any work has been done on this request?  I have a new tournament coming up and would really like to be able to use this feature.

    Thanks

    fxr: I missed this answer back in January, and I'm into my registration cycle, so I can't do the workaround this year, but if you can give me an idea of how you believe this should work, I'd like to try it on my test site for next year.  I tried last year to set the mandatory fee as 'checked="checked"', but unfortunately that then did not trigger the 'onclick="sum(this)"', so it was listed as checked but the fee was not added.
