    How can I create an order form using PayPal?

    Asked by one9ooh6 on June 11, 2015 at 04:52 PM

    I have a client that's interested in setting up an online payment system for their 30th Anniversary Gala. She would like the following options:

     

    -purchase sponsorship (3 different levels)

    -purchase souvenir booklet ad (7 different ad prices)

    -purchase tshirts (5 different sizes)

    -purchase tickets (1 single price)

     

    Do I have to create multiple forms for these items?  If so, each form would have it's own automated response. Correct?

     

    Do I just create one form that includes all options? If so, is their an option that I can send out different automated responses that show what has been purchased.

    I suggest you to check the following guides:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/50-PayPal-Forms
    http://www.jotform.com/help/47-Order-Form-Basics
    http://www.jotform.com/help/165-Setting-Up-Your-First-Order-Form

    You can also check our entire Payment section of the user guide, but I think the links above should provide you with the information you need to set up your form.

    You can create all the product list in one form or create separate ones that would be your choice. For the automated responses you want to include you can check the guides below.

    Thanks so much for your response.  So is there any way that I can use dynamic fields that shows what I have purchased or ordered if I combine everything into one form.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if I understand your last question correctly. If you have set all the options or order details in one form in your Payment wizard, and when the user submits the form, you can find the order details of all the selected product in one submission because they are on one form. No need to combine anything, I believe.  

    You can check this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/225-How-to-add-options-to-Payment-Forms. This will allow you to create multiple and custom items in your product list, I believe this will help you create multiple layers/levels of each product. 

    Another way you can set it up, is to recreate all your products in plain form fields in one form. You can then assign calculation values on them, if you have complex formula for your pricing, you can use conditional logic and form calculation widget. You can then fetch the last form calculation value and pass it directly to your payment total field

    I hope that helps.

    Thank you.
