    Possible to make forms auto calculate

    Asked by cstangle24 on May 18, 2016 at 05:13 PM

    I have a form with radio buttons and a text box field I would like to have auto calculated on the form and add the amount to the total at the bottom. The payment field i am using is Strip. 


    Is this possible to achieve with the way i have the form set up?

    Yes, this is possible. You first require to add a Calculation Value in each of your check and radio boxes.

    Since we can't calculate the total value directly into the payment gateway, we need to add the FORM CALCULATION field add the total amount.

    Once the total is calculated, you just need to pass this value the payment gateway:
