    Real time price calculator

    Asked by Alison   on January 26, 2016 at 05:00 AM

    I want to build an online form where a potential customer can use a form to list the things they are thinking of buying and then see the total price in real time on the screen WITHOUT having to give their details or progress through lots of pages and commit.

    Currently, we only have a booking form where customers have to fill in several pages and click submit before they can see the price. The majority abort at this stage and we lose that customer and cannot follow up to help them further or convert them to a sale.

    We want to give them a good experience, save them time and give them the functionality to readjust their options to suit their budget.

    I can see order form templates and get a quote templates but I can't seem to see a price calculator in real time in your templates library.

    Do you have such a thing? If so, where would we host the individual item prices?

    You should be able to do this by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form. That allows you to setup a form that automatically calculates based on the user input.

    I would also like to suggest checking the following guides to help you further on using our form builder:
