    How do I create multiple columns with price and quantity?

    Asked by echiu on May 18, 2015 at 12:08 PM

    I'm trying to create an online ordering form that lists the item and the price.  I also want to be able to have a section that people can input the quantity they want and see if there would be a form calculator that would calculate the price of the items selected.  Is this possible on jotform?

    Yes it is possible with Jotform using any of the available payment tools, e.g. Paypal. Simply drag it to your form and configure the settings like showing the total calculation, creating products, quantities, discounts and etc.

    You will find these guides helpful.

    Is it possible to add in multiple purchase orders on the same form since the items are broken into separate categories? For example, I listed 20 items that would be writing, but I want to create for another list for Paper.  It noted that I could not do more than one payment widget on the form, so I wanted to know if multiple lists were possible.

    Just to give you an idea of what I'm trying to create, this is the form I worked on and added one payment widget to attempt to see if it would calculate the fields, but it won't allow me to add another one for the next few pages.

    You may try to consider doing this to your form instead. 

    This is actually on the guide given by @EltonCris above. How-to-add-options-to-Payment-Forms.

    Thanks.  Is it possible to select multiple items from the same list in paper? Like if I wanted Paper 1 and Paper 2?
