    and that percentage fee be send on to paypal. i sort of got a setup using jotform but cannot figure how to input calculation formula to get a total.

    Ex. customer input $700,

    the fee is 5% (by pushing button it does it behind the scene),

    Then the calculated number appears in the total cost of ad section.

    That amount is sent to a review page and or goes directly to pay.


    this is the layout I made ... needs computations ... Can this be accomplished with JotForm.

    Thank You, Dee

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We can do our percentage calculation with a Form Calculation widget field, and then forward the calculated total into PayPal custom amount field.

    Here is a quick video example:

    If you would like to also hide the PayPal amount field, this can be done with injected CSS.
