    Is there a way to allow users to input the discount amount themselves?

    Asked by Tigrislyn on January 30, 2014 at 05:07 PM

    I am working on a registration form for our Music & Missions Camp.  We offer Full and Partial Scholarships.  Is there a way for those who need a partial scholarship to input that amount they need for the scholarship and the total be recalculated using the "Purchase Order" option?

    Hi,

    Yes this is possible. Use the Custom Quantity option of the field.

    Refer to this guide -How-To-Add-Options-In-The-Payment-Form

    II. Allow Custom Quantity Input (Text Box)

    1. On the selected product, click Add New Option

    2. Select Add Quantity Property. Check Custom Quantity (Text Box) to allow manual input of quantity. Click on the Next button to proceed.

     

    Inform us if you need more assistance.

    Thanks.

    How do you make it subtract from the total?

    I need them to input the amount they are going to pay; so that the total shows what they will still owe.

    Hi,

    My previous response might be confusing. What I meant was, it will not be the Amount itself but the Quantity multiplied by the Amount. There is no means to input custom Amount in the Products option of Purchase Order tool. It is only possible to use Custom Amount in Subscription option.

    Another method you can actually use is using Calculated Field (user guide: -How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form)

    Inform us if you need further assistance on this.

    If you will stick to using the Purchase Order tool, the only option for this is to use the Coupon Code  as it can be set as a discount. -How-To-Add-Coupon-Code-in-the-Payment-Form

    Thanks.  I think that second option is what I was looking for.
