    How to pass calculation to payment field?

    Asked by AthleteTrax2 on February 23, 2016 at 01:23 PM

    Also, one last thing, after that number of teams is selected and the forms are filled out by the recipient, I will need to have a paypal payment selection based on how many teams they selected. Is there a way to incorporate that at the bottom based on their original number of teams selected.  Each team will have a breakdown in cost

    Mid Atlantic Super Showcase

    1 Team $295

    2 Teams $570

    3 teams $810

    4 Teams  $1060

    5 Teams  $1300

    I dont wish to ask the recipients a second time to select the number of teams when choosing payments as well.

    Thank you

    To achieve this first you need to assign calculation values to your dropdown field. Considering that by default first option is blank, first calculation value need to be 0.

    Inside of this guide you can also find how to Assign Calculation Value: http://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    Then add Form Calculation widget to your form and pass calculation value from dropdown field to calculation field. 


    Finally add PayPal field to your form and set Donation option and pass value form calculation field to payment field. 

    Here is my demo form: https://form.jotform.com/60535022192951 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    When you integrate your form with PayPal once your form is submitted, your users will be redirected to PayPal. There they will be able to pay with PayPal or credit card. Once payment is made they will be redirected to form Thank You page. 

    In case that you want to allow your users to pay by check as well, then you will need to set up PayPal along with other payment options. Inside of this guide you can find how this can be done:

    Hi, by integrating paypal into the submit button it does not send me notification emails until a person makes payment. Is there a way of having the submit button be integrated as well as a submit that would send the notification email of completion of form


    Thank you

    Hello AthleteTrax2,

    Please be noted that when user submit the form, they are redirected to PayPal checkout page. If they do not complete the payment, the submission is marked as "Incomplete Payments". By default, submission emails for "Incomplete Payments" are not sent but you can configure your form to send submission emails for "Incomplete Payment" as well. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/273-How-to-setup-Incomplete-Payment-Notification-E-mail 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Thank you, my concern is if they choose the option for pay by check, they should not be directed to paypal. How can I avoid this but also make sure they click submit?
