    [New Conditions Wizard] Product Item selection in conditions are missing

    Asked by nikkib312 on October 09, 2015 at 12:12 PM

    How can I create a conditional character limit for text ads based on the size/cost of the ad being ordered?

    I need to offer advertisers the option to place three different ad sizes. The first and most expensive option will allow them to upload a file that contains artwork to appear in their ad. The second mid-priced option will allow them to enter a 100-character maximum text ad. The third low-priced option will allow them to enter a 30-character maximum text ad.

    Ideally, they will select Option A ($$$), Option B ($$) or Option C ($) and based on their initial selection, an upload file box appears (for Option A), or, a text entry box with character limits appears (for Options B and C with 100-character and 30-character limits respectively).

    Finally, based on their selection, they will pay for the ad via Paypal with the appropriate cost already set up for them.

    I know I can include all three options in my form and ask the customer to fill in the appropriate box but I would prefer to not allow them to fill out a 100-character text box if they are only paying for a 30-character ad. Is this possible?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    In this case we can add separate fields with different character limits on them, and show the corresponding field based on a product selection. Please see the next animation.

    In our new conditions wizard, you can target the product selection with the next values:

    First product, value = 1001
    Second product, value = 1002
    Third product, value = 1003
    and so on.

    If you need any further assistance on this, please let us know.

    We've added the product selection to the new wizard. You can again create conditions for products that have quantities.

    Thank you very much
