How can I put a charge in the payment area that is impossible to unselect and varies depends on what else is selected?

    I need to add 8% processing fee to whatever someone selects. So if they select a $200. item, I want to be able to add $16 to that as a "processing fee" field. But it must not variable, depending on the dollar total of items the user selects. And it must not be avoidable / unselectable.


    Please advise ASAP.

    NO, no, no.
    Although this is like tax in how it works, I do NOT want to infer sales tax into this non-taxable item.
    I think I figured it out. Please see what I’ve done.

    Hi @jnoreman.

    I think what JotForm Support Kevin_G meant was you can use the Tax Wizard tool to create the 8% Online Processing Fee.

    I cloned your form and recreated your product listing since I couldn't remove the original field for Online Processing which was 0%.  

    I then included a new Online Processing fee of 8% and it fixed the problem. 

    Here's the link of the cloned form.

    Hope this helps.

    Randy thanks for your help, you are right, the Tax Wizard Tool could be used to add the 8% to the payment amount.

    Another option would be add a Calculation Wizard, take the amount to pay and then make the calculation to add the 8%.

    Both options should work fine.
