    Multiply the payment due by the number of boxes checked?

    Asked by LBtaekwondo on August 06, 2014 at 09:49 PM

    On my form, folks select a week or weeks to enroll their kids for camp. They need to be charged a deposit of $50 per child/ per week.

    My payment field asks them how many children they are registering and charges $50 for each, but I need that amount to then be multiplied by the number of weeks they have selected from the check boxes. How can I make this work?

    You can achieve this by using the calculation widget. You can assign values to each of the week selections, then the calculation widget can capture those values when selected, and multiply the total with the number of children from a drop down field. The total can then be passed to Paypal from the calculated total. 

    Here are the steps that you can use to achieve that. 

    1. Assign a value to each of the week check-boxes - I'm assuming each selected option amounts to one week. The values will be used with the calculation widget to give the total selected weeks: 

    2. Add a dropdown field for the number of children. 

    3. Add a calculation field/widget that will calculate the total amount: 

    4. On your Paypal field, configure it to use the calculated total  as shown in this guide

    You can hide the calculation field so that your users don't see it as shown below:
