    Can jotform calculate shipping charges in an order form?

    Asked by TheBoCaestore on June 08, 2011 at 11:13 AM

    My Customers can place an order online using jotform. Currently I offer free shipping but I would rather have shipping charges calculated like on ebay. Can I do this?

    Hi TheBoCaestore

    Currently JotForm does not have such a feature built in but a workaround has been provided by my colleague allanftd in this thread.

    Incidentally, while viewing your form, it struck me that you could considerably reduce the space occupied by the purchase order field by formatting it in the manner shown here. I'm guessing that you may have mistakenly thought that purchase order fields with just a single product cannot calculate a total for more than one of them. (The Payment Options page of the wizard certainly leads one to believe that.) Even though the intention is to include just a single product, the trick is to choose Users can select multiple products and check Show total on the form:

    Anyway, should you require additional help with your forms, please feel free to ask. Our team will gladly offer assistance.
