    You will have to pass the value to the Paypal field. Here's how you can do that: http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field.

    Thank you for your response. I was able to send the total to a total field, but it does not appear that customers will be able to pay from that using pay pal.  I must have missed a step?  Please advise.

    I checked your jotform http://www.jotform.us/form/53056493768164 and I found that you had properly configured it now.

    So it now apply on the live form.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Sorry I am not being clear enough, and I'm not sure of all the terminology so I apologize and thank you for your patience.  I want my customers to actually pay using paypal on paypal.com so it is more secure.  So I want the grand total/my products total (which are the same amount) to transfer to paypal.com so they can enter their payment information there, not on my website.  Is this possible?  The address/contact info on my form is for the delivery only, not payment.  

    I only want paypal to take the total from my order form.  The way you are suggesting means my customers will have to enter the same info twice.  I want customers to fill out the flavor/quantity on my jotform, and then I want that info to transfer to the paypal webiste (like on last image I sent you) will item summary, so they can make payment there.
