    This is possible by creating a form calculation and payment option.

    Here's how to do it:

    1. Create a dropdown box
    2. Add a calculation value

    3. Create a form calculation widget.

    4. Create a condition to update form field value then add the value of the dropdowns.

    5. Add payment option. You can review this guide on how to pass calculation value to a field https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field
