    Do you mean to ask how to forward the calculation value to PayPal integration? If so, it is possible to send the calculated value from a calculation widget by following the guide below :

    If you want to setup a payment form by adding products with prices, please refer to the guide below :

    Hi,

    thank You very much for this information. I need to forward a value to the "Payment Purpose" field of PayPal Collect Donations/Custom Amount Payments; is it somehow possible? I think it's a useful feature to implement.

    Yes, that is possible as originally mentioned by my colleague. This guide should help you how to do it:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    But I think you have already configured this to your form. I've checked it and it's passing the amount to the Paypal field:

    Please do not hesitate to get back to us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks

    I would like to pass a value also to customize the "Payment Purpose" field. Now I have to insert it manually in the paypal payment; the value is "NidalinaLab | Saldo per acquisto"; is it possible to pass the value for this field?

    I can't find the "Payment Purpose" field in the form. But I think you wanted to calculate the values between multiple fields. If this is correct, then please follow this guide:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form

    You have to calculate the total then select this total in the Payment Wizard.

    If the way how I understand it is wrong, then please add more details about it so we can assist you further.

    Thanks

    Ooh! My apologies for that matter :) Unfortunately, you cannot pass a value in the Payment Purpose section. You have to add it in the configuration.

    Thanks
