    Can I set Up a Banquet Sign-Up / Calculator and Payment Form (PayPal)

    Asked by Eric Platt  on November 14, 2014 at 02:54 PM


    My client would like to sign up people for a banquet, and the price will depend on whether they have a membership and how many people they taking. 

    So would I be able to do calculations like that (from form entries)? And then the user could pay (based on the result) with a PayPal Business account? 


    Thank You

    Hi Eric,

    Yes, you could set it up like that by using our Form Calculation widget. To do this I would suggest taking a look at this guide: How to pass a calculation to a payment field

    Do let us know however if you have any questions along the way and we would be happy to help.

    Best Regards,

    OK great.

    Will it be able to make a calculation base on a Yes or No - whether they are a member or not ($65 vs. $85) ?
