    Actually, if not a drop down menu... is there another method so as to not have so much data on my webpage? I just prefer a more "clean" look to the site. This is why I chose the drop down menu. I just have so many products. 

     

    Thanks,

    Matt

    Are you referring to the products listed in your payment field? I would like to apologize, unfortunately, there is no way we can have those in a drop-down list.

    However, you can try the workaround below to minimize the space for your products.

    First: Add a drop-down and have your products listed as options.

     

    Second: Set calculation value for each product(option) in the drop-list.

    Note: Make sure you add a zero value for the empty option in the drop-down.

    Third: Once you've done that, you need another field where you can pass the value of the option selected. I would suggest you use the Form Calculation widget

    Fourth: Pass the value in the Form Calculation widget to your payment field as a donation. How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    Lastly: Hide the Form Calculation widget so it will not be visible in the form.
