    Did you mean that you wanted to send a set price from a dropdown to be used in a calculation that gets picked up by paypal?

    Please see http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field for instructions and details.

    You would basically first need to combine your paid dropdown choices with a calculation widget to generate the amount needed and then that would get carried over into paypal afterwards.
