    Calculating Fields and Integration with PayPal

    Asked by INWRPCA on February 05, 2014 at 05:11 PM


    I am trying to create a registration form with options for meals etc. that will calculate/total at the end. At which point I would like the user to choose how they would like to pay (check or PayPal). Based on that selection I would like the form to redirect to PayPal for completion or to a message that says "Thank you for your order ---" with an address of where to mail payment.

    I have the form complete with the exception of the calculating field and PayPal integration.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Hi, you can integrate your form with Paypal:

    It has the option to calculate based on the amount of products the user selects:

    Please take a look a this guide about Paypal forms. Also take a look a this guide to set up Paypal along with other payment options such as Check or Phone.

    This helps, but I still have a question about a calculating field. What if the user selects pay via check, is there a field that will tell them the amount they need to pay? They won't see the PayPal calculation.
