    You can do this in the payment wizard. In setting up the payments, you need to choose "Users can select multiple products" and then enable the "Show total on the form".

    You can easily add multiple products with the assigned price on it.

    Here's how it'll looks like in the payment field in the live version.

    Please refer to these related guides:

    Hey thanks ., will this work from drop down choices ? I have rather alot of picture frame sizes can choose from ..
    Also I will need price options to pop up based on previous choices.. 
    Ie we charge a fee to coat the picture , but that fee depends on the size they choice, is this just a matter of creating conditions..

    For a drop down under products, you can use the "Add Options" feature. Please follow the steps below:

    1. In the Payment wizard: Products, select a product and then click the "Add New Option" button.

    2. After that, select the "Add a Custom Property" option and then press next.

    3. In the next screen, please put a product option Name and then put the options in the Properties. Also, you can enable the special pricing so that you can assign a price for each option.

    4. In the next screen, you can put the price of each item. When you're done, click the "Finish" button.

    Here's how it'll looks like:
