    The order form needs to collect the name of the person ordering and their email,  then asks them to write a quantity for each fixed item being ordered, with a submit button.



    Item ref       Item Description      Quantity to order

    1234              Item name one                User entry

    1235              Item Name two                User entry

    etc for 30 entries....

    Submit button

    Ideally the Submit button should generate a PDF which

    I think the best way to set this up would be to use our Payment Tool. If this will involve an online payment such as Paypal, you can use Paypal in the section. If not, use the Purchase Order from the same section.

    For the Item Reference, I would suggest adding it at the end of the Item Description. 

    Here's an example: https://form.jotform.com/53163580819965.

    Here's how to add the item properties such as the Quantity box: https://www.jotform.com/help/225-How-To-Add-Options-In-The-Payment-Form.

    Great Welvin,  that's really helpful and almost what I want!

    How do I:

    - the items being ordered have no cost and I don't want the word "Free" appearing on the form.  How do I get rid of it?

    - in the responder email,  I only get a data option of "My product".  Is it possible to access the sub data items.  I only want the confirmation email to show Product name and associated order quantity.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    You can remove the "Free" text by injecting the following custom CSS codes to your form:

    span.form-product-details {

        display: none;


    Here's how to inject the codes: https://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes.


    You can strip out the labels in the payment tool. Here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/231-How-to-Strip-Payment-Labels-and-Separate-Payment-Info-on-Email-Alerts. But unfortunately, you cannot separate the quantity info as well as the price. Example:
