    I need payment forms with different prices for different options

    Asked by junglejamjohn on November 21, 2011 at 11:09 PM

    As an example, I need ny clients to choose a canopy tour alone or one of the combo deals, each with different prices for adults, children and other options. I have about 20 other forms like this that I want to add payments to, and many of them have variations of the tour, like with or without transport, budget/value/deluxe, private/semi private/group, with/without combo deal, and packages with hotel options, tour options, etc. and many of these have different prices for adults and children.

    Here is one example

    Canopy Zipline Tour

         How many Adults - $50

         How Children - $25

    Canopy combo deal with Quad ATV Tour

         Adults

              How many riding one person per ATV quad - $125

              How many sharing a quad (2 pax per quad) - $100

         Child

              How many 7 years through 12 years? (Ride quad with an adult paying as a single rider.) - $50

    Canopy combo deal with Horse Riding Tour

         Adults - $105

         Child

              How many 5 years through 8 years? (Ride horse with an adult for at no extra charge) - $25

              How many 9 years through 12 years? (Ride their own horse) - $80

     

    It seems that you guys need a calculator plug-in of some kind. Can you offer any solutions, or am I destined to manually send an invoice after form submission?

    If you are planning to use your form and integrate it with a payment gateway such as Paypal, you will need to use one of the payment tools available in your form editor.  You can find the list of payment gateways available for integration with your form,  by editing your form and then clicking Payment Tools on the left panel.

    You can also set a calculator for your payment form tool. Just click the Show Total icon (on your form's tool bar) to activate.

     

    You can also learn more about payment forms from this chapter of the user guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/chapter-7-Payment+Forms

    Please let us know if you need further assistance with your payment form.

    Thank you for the reponse. I added the paypal payment tool to my form and added products and options and read the entire user guide regarding payments and spent an hour in the forum, all before I asked my question.  As far as I can tell, the paypal form does not come close to allowing me to offer different prices for different options within each tour, like one price for kids,  another price for adults,  another price for the tour with ad ons, another price depending on how many passengers on each ATV quad.  And the Paypal tool certainly won't be able to handle the purchase of a package tour that has the option of several differently priced hotels with sub options of differently priced rooms, the option of different onward destinations, different tours, option of durration of visit (2 nights, 3 nights, 4 nights, 5 nights), etc.

    So I'm looking for a solution that allows different prices for different options and sub options of the same product.

    Or iIs there a way to calculate total due based on form responses before it goes to a payment gateway?

    Hello John,

    Unfortunately, we do not support all the functionality you have described.

    At this moment, we are able to handle simple payment forms only. Please take a look at the following example: http://form.jotform.com/form/13000630954

    The possible solution is to split your form to several forms with multiple products. Also it is possible to redirect the clients to different order forms based on their choices, using Conditions feature:

    Please note that we have already added mentioned by you functionality to our Nice To Do list, but there is no any ETA for when we will be able to provide improved payment solution. We hope for your understanding in this matter.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any other assistance.

    Thank you again for your resonse and possible solution. Another solution I read in the forums could be to use embeded forms based on selections. I will continue to work on it. -john

    Hey John,

    Yeah I gave an example on how to embed two forms (with different payment options) into one form which broadens payment options and may well be useful in your case:

    Thanks for taking the time to look around the forum for possible  solutions :) 

    If you do have any questions, just let us know.
