    Hello roxxstar,

    Though there is no built in feature to display the product in the dropdown field, you can take advantage of a combination of "Product Option" and "Custom CSS" feature to achieve your requirement.

    Please take a look at the following form and see if this is something what you are trying to achieve:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41322912337953?

    Here are the steps to create similar form:

    1. Add a "Payment Question" in your form.

    2. Add only one dummy product and then add options of this dummy product with special pricing. When you add options, select the "Add a Custom Property" and list all the products you want to add. Please check the screenshot below:

    The following guides should help you:

    Add option in your product form:  https://www.jotform.com/help/225-How-To-Add-Options-In-The-Payment-Form

    Add special pricing:  https://www.jotform.com/help/265-What-is-Special-Pricing

    3. Find the dummy product checkbox ID and the label ID and inject custom css code to hide them. The following guide should help you find the field names and IDs:  https://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-Field-IDs-Names

    In my demo form, I have injected the following custom css code:

    #input_3_1001{display: none !important;}

    .form-product-details, .form-sub-label {display: none !important;}input#input_3_1001 + label { display: none !important;}

    Feel free to clone my demo form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
