    is there a way to have an option to charge a percentage as opposed to a set dollar amount (via paypal or any other payment methods provided)??

    Asked by scottjphotos on May 22, 2014 at 01:33 AM

    Looking to see if there is a way to allow customers to pay a % of the total amount they owe. For instance, if they owed $100, we could give them an option of 1) no down payment 2) 25% of the total or 3) the full amount, etc.

    any help?

    For this goal, you can use the calculation widget in conjunction with conditions. Then, add a payment field to your form, choose "custom amount payment" as the payment type to get the calculation widgets value.

    Does the following sample form demonstrate what you want to achieve?
