    Hello,

    We are a restaurant using your platform to create an order form for our holiday preorder packages. As most of our guests show us love during the holiday season we would like to add a tip line to the payment screen when a guest checks out. Can you tell me if this is possible, and if so how do I add it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello,

    In order to add a tip field you can either just add another product for a flat value tip, or you can take all the products out of the product list and create them individually where the payment integration takes a user defined value. You can do this by doing the following.

    1. Create your products using regular Dropdown or Multiple Choice fields.

    2. Assign calculation values for each product; the value should be the price of the product.

    3. Add a form calculation widget that will calculate the total of the selected products.

    4. Add number field that will hold the user's input for Tip amount.

    5. Add another form calculation field that will sum up the product cost and the tip.

    6. Lastly, you can then pass this total into your payment field:
