    Alternative to using conditions for pricing

    Asked by perfectimijre on July 11, 2014 at 08:27 PM

    I have read that using a lot of conditions can be a problem.  Can someone suggest another way for me to implement what I want to do on my site.   I would like for my customer to select options and the price show in the box.  I have successfully achieved that with the conditions, but I would have to do so many more to complete this and I for see this being a problem during maintenance of the site.   Every option determines a different price for instance a one subject Acrylic,18X24, on rolled canvas  could be 194.00 and the stretched Canvas could be 204.00.  I need my pricing to change based on the options selected.      Help please. I have enclosed a screen shot of what I have.

    Hi,

    If the price is different based on the number of field combination, then only our mathematical would be able to accomplish that one.

    How many conditions do you think you need for this form? Well, there should be no problem on the form functions. Having a lot of conditions, for example, 500 conditional logic would only affect the speed of the form, but NOT that much since our forms are designed to work for that purpose.

    Thanks
