    Can I create a payment form that automatically calculates the total purchases?

    Asked by Chrissybright on August 26, 2014 at 10:06 AM

    The form I want to create is to order pizzas.  We want to list the 3 types of pizzas along with a quantity button for each pizza.  When the customer enters the quantities for each pizza we would like the form to automatically calculate the total amount due.  This total amount would then appear on the form and transfer to the Paypal submit button.

    Thank you
