    Is it possible to add a coupon code to the total? In other words, the calculation will automatically calculate the total, but I want to give some people a coupon code which will then take a set $ amount off the total.

    Hi, It probably wasn't clear in this separate thread that my question was coming from a post about passing a calculation to a payment field, here: http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    I cannot find a coupon option if I use the collection donations/custom amount payments selection.

    Do you mean why isn't there the option to add a "coupon" in the Donation|Custom Payment Amount section of the payment integration if chosen? Please confirm or correct me.

    Yes, I'd like to pass a calculation total to a payment form (in this case, paypal) as shown in your example above.  But I want to give coupon codes to certain people so they can get a discount off the total price.  Is there a way to do that?

    Unfortunately there is not coupon code option if you select Collect Donations/Custom Amount Payments option.

    Possible workaround is  to create a coupon code by adding text box field to accept the discount code and then adding a Form calculation field. 

    Now you need to setup a condition that if coupon is equal to "coupon1" then update the Form calculation field:

    In this case there is a fixed discount of 20 USD:

    You can test and clone the demo form (coupon is coupon1):

    Inside of this article can find out how to add coupon code in payment form:

    Hope this will help. Let us know if we can assist you further.

    Great, a tad more clunky, but I think this workaround should work.  I'll test it out with my form.  Thanks!
