    PayPal Widget Functionality

    Asked by vlm on December 06, 2013 at 05:07 PM

    Hello, I've created a basic form for purchasing gift certificates on a website with JotForm tools:  


    It all works fine and well, however, I need the PayPal checkboxes to be fields where users can type in a quantity.  By default, they should all be zero, but users could enter any number that would update the price accordingly.  Is there anyway you can make this an option, or could someone manually help me manipulate the source code to have this functionality?

    The form is called SkyVenture Colorado Gift Certificates in my account.

    Please help, this is a very important component for my form and needs to work properly ASAP.

    Thank you,

    Hi Jared,

    We already have custom quantity option available on the PayPal payment tool. You can enable that option and set 0 as the initial quantity. Now, anytime the quantity 0 is changed, the associated item checkbox will be automatically checked.
