    Asked on April 11, 2016 at 02:53 AM

    is it possible to create a form whereby we ask the person different questions or give them different selections to choose and depending on their answer we give different answers different price point and the total is automatically transferred to a field for what they have to pay


    For example


    1) Which size shirt do you want?

    A > Large (assigned to 10 points)
    B > Medium (7)
    C > Small (3)


    2) What color do you want?

    A > Black (10)
    B > Blue (7)
    C > Red (3)


    Now if they choose B from question 1 and C from question 2............then the total added together is 10 which will pre-populate into a payment field meaning they agree to pay $10


    Can this be done and if

    Hi there,

    To achieve that scenario, you need to calculate the values from outside with "Form Calculation" widget, then you can send those value to Paypal payment tool again.


    First, you need to set your "Form Calculation" widget. Below, you will find the necessary guide:

    Then, you need to transfer this value to your Paypal too. You can find useful tutorial about how to do it from the following link:


    In addition, I created a form for your case and you can see the conditional logic from the below:


    Also, you can see how it's working in action from the link below:


    The form above is made for your cause, so you can easily clone it to your account and skip the creation part of your work. If you need any extra information or assistance, please always feel free to contact us.

    Can this be done for stripe integration or only for paypal?

    Yes. This can be also used for Stripe integration. PayPal and Stripe are having the same wizard to use with JotForm.

    Can this be done for monthly subscriptions or only for a one time only payment?

    No. Passing calculation value to the payment wizard works only with one-time payments and not with Subscriptions. The subscriptions are required to create from the wizard or if you are using Stripe, you may fetch the subscriptions from the Stripe account as well.

    Hope this information helps! If you need any further assistance, please let us know. We will be happy to help.
