    calculating based on three fields

    Asked by Nigel on January 11, 2012 at 10:04 AM



    If I am selling writing services based on, for example, four cents per word for service "a," and, for example, 4.5 cents per word for service "B," and so on and the buyer also has to specify how many articles they want, how do I set this up?


    In other words, they have to select-

    what type of article they want - SEO article, review article, etc

    how many articles of this type - quantity, Options from 1 to 50

    how many words to make up each article, Options from 300 to 1,500.


    And Once they have done this I want the price they need to pay to be automatically selected in order for them to go to the payment check out.


    is this possible?

    Hi Nigel,

    Thank you for your interest in our product. Field calculcation is a feature that's been asked by our users for quite some time now - I think it was already added to our feature wishlist, although we have not received a word about its status yet. In any case, we will let our users know if this feature becomes available.

    JotForm currently has only two methods of calculation - one is by using the Grading tool and the other by using our Payment tools.

    The Grading tool can only add numbers entered in textbox "subfields"

    With Payment tools, you can auto-calculate the price of products selected by the user.

    Follow the link below to learn more about Payment tools and how it can help you with your goal.

    Hope you find this useful.
