    Need a pricing Matrix widget

    Asked by ricklinus13 on April 13, 2016 at 06:13 PM

    Hey there!

    My business does Custom Screen Printing / Embroidery.  We would like to create and online tool that allows users enter the information on their shirt order and provide them a quote in real time.  The pricing involves Qty of shirts x multiple variables to come up with the total.  Variables include, print colors, print locations, etc, but all factor within a very practical pricing matrix.  However there is also a scalable price that comes into play when certain quantities are hit.


    Any assistance would be GREAT!!

    You can create payment form using the Matrix table field as well.

    The user guide: How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-in-the-Matrix-Field described how the calculation needed can be done using the matrix field.

    In your form http://www.jotform.us/form/61037117138146 I see that you were using the Configurable List widget for the matrix table. But the configurable list widget is not available for calculation functions. So you cannot use it if you want to perform matrix calculations. 

    I suggest using the Matrix table (from Survey Tools) instead.


    I more simpler and direct option is to use the Payment tools instead. There is option for sub-products and special pricings that can make the payment option behave like a matrix.

    User guides:

    1. Create-Sub-Products-Based-on-a-Product-Option

    2. What-is-Special-Pricing

    You can test this demo form that have payment form https://www.jotform.com/60306821651954
