    How does JotForms integrate with WordPress? Does it have to make a separate call to the jotforms website each time a form is submitted? What does it do to load time?

    I'm not sure how are you trying to integrate your form with Wordpress, I presume you're trying to send some data from a form submission to your Wordpress site, or from the website to your form. 

    Currently you can add your form to your Wordpress site, here is a guide that will help you with that: Embed-JotForm-in-Wordpress-using-the-Embed-Form-Plugin

    But the data will be stored on JotForm side, any of the data will be sent to Wordpress. 

    If this does not help, please provide us a bit more about what you're looking for, we will be glad to help you.

    We are looking to re-create what is currently displaying here:

    I have never done ecommerce and I'm trying to get my feet wet. I use WordPress as a content management system for the websites that I build, and so I was moving in the direction of WooCommerce for creating the order form on the URL above. The problem that I'm running into is all of the different variables, along with the fact that WooCommerce will only produce 50 variations at a time. 

    We need to be able to set a multiple for products in certain quantity ranges and have it process on the server. So maybe business cards start out at $0.04 per card for quantities between 100-250. If the buyer decides he wants rounded corners on those cards, that might raise the multiple to $0.047 per card. He wants it to be double sided, now it's $0.052. Let's say he selects a quantity of 200 cards, then that number is multiplied by $0.052 and that is the total.

    When using WooCommerce, I have yet to find a way to do that. If we can find a way to make that happen on JotForms and integrate it into WordPress, say as a plugin, that could work for us.

    Does what I'm saying make sense? What we really want to be able to do is format the order form very much like a spreadsheet where we say, x attribute will cost $y, z attribute will cost $n. Add up all the attribute costs and multiply them times the quantity of print product and that gives the user a total price.

    Hello Scott,

    With JotForm, we have different payment tools available in the form builder. Using any of these fields, you can create your custom order form with all the quantities, custom options you want within the payment wizard. I suggest to check this guide to learn how to create order forms using the payment tools.

    You can also find ready-made order form templates here

    Upon looking your example, I believe enabling special pricing would help. This allows you to create more options on a product

    With regards to integration, we have few WP plugins which allow you to embed your forms easily to your WP site. Just to clarify, these plugins does not provide data to data integration within your WP site. This is generally used for embedding the form. (for feedback form embed)

    However, we also have an app created by one of our very own user (who won the app competition) that would allow you to integrate JotForm within your WP site. This has the capability to create forms, manage the forms and its submissions within your WP site. Check this out

    If you have further questions or if you need further assistance, do let us know.

    Thank you!
