    How to Show Details of Items Being Purchased?

    Asked by john2177 on August 28, 2015 at 06:51 AM

    Hi we want to create a form to generate purchase orders

    This must be able to calculate the cost of the items being purchased

    so we need to put  the description of the item being purchased
    The cost of the item the quantity of items ordered and the total cost of these items

    eg baked beans 4 at £1.00 x 4 = £4.00  tinned peas at £0.50 x 4 = £2.00

    First is it possible for the form or a widget to do this

    If so can it be setup to do more then one line or then add all the totals together eg in the case above the totals would be £4.00 + £2.00 = £6.00

    You can do that easily with "Payment Tools".



    You just need to set your account, tool settings and add products to your payment tool. HERE, you can find paypal payment tool tutorial about how to do that.

    Also, I created a demo form for you. You can try it from HERE.


    If you have any further questions about payment, please feel free to contact us again.
