    You can set the default quantity to "100" which should easily calculate to $1 x 100 = $100. Giving you the default $100 in the product donation.


    You can see how it looks like in my cloned form here: https://form.jotform.com/60674478924973. However, please note that you are using a quantity option here, you'll see in the product order details when a purchase has been made will display something like this:

    Noticed that there's two amount of showing in the email notification, one is the actual amount of the product and the other is the quantity option which is named as "Amount in $".



    I strongly suggest to consider reviewing how your form and products should be setup. Here are some questions that I have in mind:

    1. Should you users be able to select more than one product donation? Currently, all options of your products can be selected at the same time, not limiting your users to donate in one category or type only.

    2. Would you like to see two "Amount" details in the email notification? As shown or displayed in the screenshot above.


    If you have a complex pricing, complex product and complex design. I strongly suggest recreating the products as simple form fields, use a simple form calculation widget or conditions to have a total price then pass it on your payment integration. Here are some guides that might help:

    We can further help you on this but I strongly suggest reviewing and redesigning the functionality of your form as a whole.
