    Creating an instant online quote form

    Asked by debs2105 on April 22, 2014 at 05:34 AM

    Hi I have used your forms a lot over the last few months and think that they are excellent.

     

    I wondered if you could tell me is it possible to produce a instant quote form that is linked to a service and a date?

     

    ie i run a transfer company so i would like my clinets to be able to use drop down menus to chosse where there departure is and arrival and date and depending on this information a price to be automatically calculated

    and arrival departure

    Hello debs2105,

    When you say  "instant quote form that is linked to a service" do you mean to say that the calculation data needs to come from an external source?

    If not then, you can take advantage of our "Form Calculation" widget that should help you write your calculation logic and calculate the price accordingly. You may also like to take a look at our "Form Templates" sections where we have quite a few templates which should suit your requirement or at least give you an idea on this:  http://www.jotform.com/form-templates/category/calculation-form

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    if for example I was easy jet and I choose my departure airport and my
    arrival airport and what date I would like to travel and it will calculate
    me a price?

    Hello Deborah,

    A better approach of building your solution would be to have a workflow and a chart of prices.

    From your requests, it seems that: 

    1. The price changes with the date

    2. The price changes with the type or manner of service

    My response is that it is possible to create such a form.

    If the relationship between the date and the type/manner of service is linear (not a complicated equation) - you can accomplish this easily with our form calculation widget

    If they are not linear (prices are totally random, and are tabulated), yes it can still be achieved.

    We would like to hear more about the following then:

     - How the date and the service interact to produce a price -

     - What process the user would go through to generate a price  - walk us through it

    Looking forward to your response.

    IF I GIVE YOU AN URL OF A TRANFER COMPANY THAT USES A QUICK QUOTE FORM
    THAT MAY BE EASIER THAN ME TRING TO EXPLAIN
    http://www.peaktransfer.com/en/home/
    I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS FAIRLY COMPLEX BUT I KNOW THAT YOUR FORMS HAVE
    THE CAPABILITY OF PRODUCING THIS ITS JUST MY SKILLS THAT DO NOT.
    I HAVE CURRENTLY PRODUCES A FORM THAT HAS DIFFERENT AREAS HIDDEN SO JUST
    GIVES A SET PRICE BUT IT WOULD BE GREAT TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A PRICE THAT
    CHANGES DEPENDING ON THE DEPARTURE DESTINATION AND THE ARRIVAL DESTINATION

    Hi Deborah,

    If I am not mistaken, you were referring to this Quote form

     

    On the initial look, the layout is very much doable in JotForm.

    The only hesistation I have is on the functionality of the Promo code on how it will work without getting complex using the form's source code.

    Give us time to try create a demo form. We will get back to you on this.

    Thanks.

    hi

    i'm also interested in what Debra is requesting.

    i'm running service from one airport to all towns of a State.

    so i want a price to pop out once a  destination is chosen.

    with the ability to add some extra services, like extra stop or a car seat.

    whenever an extra service is added the price will be added to the total.

    is that something that you do, or i can find somewhere??

    thank you so
