    Is it possible to pass an embedded form's calculated value to the host website?

    Asked by letlocker on June 29, 2016 at 05:14 PM

      I've got a form that will update the price of a product as a customer makes changes.  I would like to pass this calculated total to Squarespace so that I can use their shipment, payment, and summary pages.  Is this possible with Jotform + Squarespace?

    I have tried pass the value from embedded form with javascript, but my attempts were unsuccessful. I think that this might be related to the same-origin policy or some other aspect that I am missing. I will try to look further into this, and let you know if I have have any updates.

    Hey Mike,

    If you find a solution, that'd be great but I'm time sensitive and am finding a work-around in the meantime.

    I'm just going to have (A) one payment/confirmation branch if you need to use the form (using the embedded Jotform options) and (B) a Squarespace path if you don't need to use the form.

    Thanks!
