    How can I create a Form Quote with conditional emails?

    Asked by sreken on April 21, 2014 at 08:15 AM

    Hi,
    I have no hair left now.
    Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME.
    Let me explain what I am trying to do with my For "Hydrographics Price List"
    If you look at the Form the customer can select what items in the products
    you will note that the prices are "From" the reason is because due to different
    sizes and specs this price will vary.
    So when a customer selects what he wants, I want this Form to go to Impact Paints
    and not direct to the Paypal Page.
    You very kindly showed me how to insert the options for the customer to choose
    where he wants to send it, namely "Quote" or "Pay. The reason for the Quote option
    is to enable us to receive the order to work out the correct price, once we have done that
    we would reply to the customer and he would then complete the "Additional Add On" product
    then that would give a grand total for the customer to submit to Paypal, hence the Button for "Pay"
    when selected would go to the Paypal Page.
    In short if Quote is selected then the form comes to us complete.
    If Pay is selected then the form goes to the Paypal Page.
    I have tried all the methods that has been suggested but nothing is working as I
    want it to.
    Can you please advise me accordingly as this Form is completely useless if I cant get it
    to do what I want.

    To be honest this is going to be a little tricky to do because of the way you are attempting to do it. Thinking about this for a few I think it might be a better idea if you kept it as separate forms the way you have it currently. You will need to set up conditional emails to be set out accordingly based on choices made if those conditions are met so that it goes to either " Quote " or " Pay " which I see you do not have yet and that will fix the problem. You will need 1 notification for each for it to work.

    The next step would be to implement into your Quote the ability to carry over a Custom Calculated Price into your PayPal Field. This will allow you to give a Quoted Price ahead of time based on the customer.
