    Asked on November 04, 2013 at 12:13 PM


    I like a lot of your websites features... 

    I am hoping to get a specific design and want to know if Jotform will offer these features.


    We sell multiple products, so I'd like a product dropdown (with up to 16 items) with corresponding price for that item in the dropdown.

    Next to this dropdown I would like a quantity feild for selecting multiple quantities of the same product.

    I also need paypal integration that will provide a Total price for all products and quantities that get selected.

    If your website will offer these I will buy. Please let me know what we can do.

    Thank you.

    Hello Tommy. First of all, thank you for taking an interest on JotForm.


    Yes this is possible with JotForm. Follow the steps here.

    1. Use the Paypal payment Integration and drag it on the workspace


    2. The Payment Integration Wizard should automatically popup. Set your Paypal account infos here


    3. Here, choose "Users can select multiple products"

    Make sure to tick "Show total on the form" to compute for total prices automatically and show it.


    4. Add your first product


    5. Set your product name

    6. Set your base price

    7. Click "Add New Option" to add quantity options


    8. Choose "Add Quantity Property"

    Optionally, you may want to just let your users to type any quantity on a textbox, if you want this, then check the "Custom Quantity(Text Box)". Otherwise, you can set your own set of quanitities on the next page.


    9. If you do not choose the Custom quantity, this is the page you will see. You can set your Quantity label and define your set of quantities that you wish

    Optionally, you may choose to tick "Enable Special Pricing" checkbox. This will give you the ability to set separate price for each quantity you defined.

    Click Next. If you are done.


    10. If in case you choose to enable special pricing for each quantity then you will see this page.

    You may also enable the sub-total to be shown on the form.

    Click Finish button when you are done.


    11.Save Product, and if you wish to create more products, you will just repeat the steps.


    This is the final look of the form(I just set random pricings)


    If you need further help, please do not hesitate to reach us. Thank you

    Hi ardy0689,

    Thank you so much for your response. This is very close and I started to build it but I have one more question.

    In your final look (last picture) it shows "New Product 1" with a checkbox. 

    Is there a way instead of using a checkbox next to products to instead have a dropdown for selected the product from a list?

    The quantity feild is exactly what I wanted by the way! Thanks 

    Looking forward to your reponse.

    Hello Tommy, you can do that by adding multiple options on the product:

    1. Revising the step 8, choose this instead "Add a Custom Property".


    2. Set the label and define your Sub Products.

    In this kind of situation, special pricing is mandatory. Click Next when done.


    3. Set your prices per each product. Enable sub-total on form if you wish.


    4. Now to add another option, this time for quantities


    5. Just like before, set the Quantity label and your defined set of quantities.

    If you noticed that "Enable special pricing" is already disabled because you have enabled it on the first option on the sub products. The quantities will just multiply that special pricing.


    6. This will be the outcome of your product settings


    This will be the final form


    Please let us know if this is what you want. Thank you

    Hi ardy0689,

    Thank you for you reply.  I went and did it but that is
     not exactly what I'm looking for.

     Rather than have a dropdown for a specific price (e.g $13.00) I would prefer to have each product in the dropdown have it's own specific price (I have 16 different products for sale, each with a different price)

    The ideal end goal result would be:

    4 dropdowns windows, each containing the 16 different products with their unique price, with a quantity feild after each dropdown, and a total / paypal calculator at the bottom.

    Thank you so much for your help. I look forward to your reply.

    Hi Tommy, yes it has its own specific pricing. If you look at Step 3 on my last post, I did manage to set the custom pricing for each product before adding the quantities option. So there are 2 Options in which I added here. 1 for Sub Products labels & their special pricing and 1 for the quantities.


    You should set your base price to 0 from the main product settings.


    If you want to see this in action please see this demo form I have made for you.

    Hi Ardy,

    Thank you for your response. I was able to get it to work. 

    Here is my form:

    My only question now is how do I put a condition in place so that when a customer chooses a product that the additional product feild will appear and then if a product is chosein in the additional product feild a 2nd additional product feild will appear, and so on. Do you know how to set conditions within the products?

    Thank you for your help. Looking forward to your response.

    Kind regards,

    While we have "Show/Hide form fields" conditions, it does not work on individual elements inside the Payment Integration.

    However, it does set rules based on your products to show or hide different fields or controls outside of the Payment Integration like the one shown on the image below.


    The only work around for your situation is to get the full source code of your form and host it on your website. This will be outside of JotForm. After that, create a Javascript or jQuery where in you target the individual fields to show or hide when user chooses product 1 and so on. Please read more on How to get your Form Source Code.
