    Hello,

    I use the Purchase Order payment widget, and I've been looking at various posts about bulk product upload or import and all the responses say the same thing: "Unfortunately, there is no way ..." or "Sorry, but is not possible ...".

    Jotform is a powerful, very useful and extremely friendly tool that sadly has many shortcomings.

    How is it possible that you can't do something so basic?

    I think there are many people who would like to be able to do that.

    Thanks and regards.

    Hello,

    We were able to review your reply and it is indeed currently unavailable on our end. The product list currently doesn't have that kind of feature. We can suggest that to our developers since I also think that it is a great feature to have. But let me set your expectations that the feature request doesn't have any guaranteed timeframe for its resolution. And there's also no guarantee that the feature will be implemented.

    One workaround that we can suggest is for you to use the Spreadsheet to Form widget. You can use this to allow users to select the product from the widget then just send the price data to the payment field. You can learn more about that by checking this guide out: How to Use the Spreadsheet to Form Widget.

    I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us again if you need further help. Thank you!
