    Hi MrB,

    Sorry but at this time it is not possible with JotForm. We suggest that you include the cost of the extra add-ons to the cost of the main product and add it as a totally new product. For example:

    () - Subscription A only ($10)
    () - Subscription A plus $5 upgrade ($10 + $5 = $15)

    We hope you still find this workaround helpful. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    I can offer one other potential workaround, If you are happy to create different forms for each of your subscription options and are happy to get your hands dirty with some HTML & Javascript.

    Start by creating forms for each of your subscriptions choices. 

    Once that is done, we just need to work on a logical way to place them on your webpage.

    I have drawn up a quick bit of HTML/CSS & Javascript to show the sort of thing you could do.

    (link removed... site down.)

    This works by showing a different form depending on which of the radio buttons are selected on a webpage. The code for that is here: http://pastie.org/2827689

     

    This method would a fair bit of work to get looking exactly as you want, but it is a workable solution, and we are more than happy to help, should you wish to try and implement something like this.

    Hi, many thanks for your feedback. I think we'll probably stick with what we've got at the moment then. We're due to revise our prices in the new year - we may well change it then. 

    Many thanks.

    Mr B.
