    Form calculation - Calculating prices and tax and passing it to payment processing tool

    Asked by jennymccann on January 13, 2015 at 11:45 AM

    Hi Jotform, 

    I am a wedding photographer and I want to add radio buttons for clients to select multiple products that all add together, include tax and update the payment widget with that amount. I will also be collecting a $1,000 deposit so I would like to have the ability to allow them to select a different $ amt when paying. Is this possible? 


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Jenny,

    From what you have mentioned it seems possible.

    You would need to set different fields to hold their value that you would collect over Form Calculation widget and then calculate in the taxes and pass it to the payment processing tool.

    These next guides would help you achieve this:

    If you have any further questions along the way, do let us know and we would be happy to assist.

    Best Regards,
