Different options on Payment formAsked by newmethodanceministries on April 14, 2015 at 10:22 AM
I am currently creating a vendor registration form. at the bottom I need multiple choices of what they might be purchasing.
They will be purchasing the amount of days they will want to be a vendor at our event. I am not sure if there is an easier way for me to set up how many days they want and to tell me which days they want to set up. Or is there a way that it can look better. I just need to know what my options are if there are multiple ways that it can be done.Since I have set up the payment tools under paypal, does it automatically direct them to paypal and they have to use it? or is there another payment tool option where they have a choice if they want to use paypal or not?In the payment fields, the only thing that is required right now is the deposit upon submission. They only need to pay half of their total. Ie I want to be a vendor for 3 days ($75.00 and that is the actual cost) and I need an extra 6 Ft Table ($10.00 actual cost). So my total would be $85.00. The deposit would be half of what the total cost would be. So I need a way for them to only be able to pay half of what the total cost is, but they still need to see what the actual cost is. And I also need an option if they would like to just pay the whole thing at once. Is that possible? I would also like multiple examples.Is there a way for them to come back to their form and make a final payment close to the deadline that we have given them? or would I need to bill them through paypal?
I have made a form with different possibilities, how your users can select number of days they want to be a vendors. You can use radio buttons, Check boxes, date time, Number field and other type of fields. Here is the example of mine form.
I have split your thread in several threads and we will answer you on them shortly.
Hope this will help.
So how do you calculate it all in the end for the total so they can pay?
I believe these are the guides that might help you:
1. How to assign calculation values to radio buttons and check boxes: http://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value
2. After that, you can perform a calculation using the Form Calculation widget: http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form
3. After you give a calculation, you can then try passing the total value to the payment total field by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field
I hope this helps.
