    I would like to create a payment field with multiple options.

    Asked by AndreaOstroff on July 14, 2016 at 02:21 PM

    In my payment field, Of my Picture Day Order Form, I would like to have 5 products with a quantiy option

    and each of these 5 products should ideally have a collapsed bunch of sub options (each with their own price and quantity.)

    I did a bit of research and I keep being led to many different "how to guides" and I've basically lost the option to have a payment button on the main product...and the quantity button is not in the right place....I need some help please.

    thanks, andrea

    It looks like that you have already added the required options to the first product in the payment wizard.

    I also notice that you have added the options along with the special pricing for the Product C. You'll need to enable the option "Create sub-products from the options" from the payment wizard for the other products as well in order to sub products with their own pricing and quantity.

    Hope this information helps! Please get back to us if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    I believe the setup you are looking for is a bit more complex than the payment field allows for.  For more complex setup's like yours, I would recommend using regular fields like text boxes, number fields and checkboxes to create your products and options.  You can then assign though options calculation values:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    You can then total up the options and multiply costs by quantities selected using a calculation field:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-perform-calculation-in-the-form

    That final total can then be passed to your payment field:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    I will set up an example for to show you how to the setup would work.  I will update this thread once it is done.

    Here is a copy of your form using the setup I described:

    https://form.jotform.com/form/61956413815965

    I set up all the packages and one section of the package options.  The calculation and passing the calculation to the payment field are also set up.  You can clone it to your account for further inspection:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    It would require setting up the rest of the options and if you have any trouble along the way or have any questions regarding this setup, let us know and we will be happy to help.

    If yousee the original screen shot above....I've seen samples where the main category (in this case...Package A..can also have a check box and a price and a quantity. 

    I have seen a sample...but I do not know how to get this to work.

    If you enter a value for the first package, the sub-options will appear for the package.

    If I make the products on a regular non payment field, can I get a quantity button?

    This is possible to use separate fields to implement the quantity options. For example, there are Number fields used on David's form.

    You are not limited to the Number fields only, the Drop Downs, Radio Buttons and Check Boxes are available too.

    If you need some specific example, please let us know.

    Hi.

    So I ran with David's form and I am trying to work with that template and I ran into a new problem...

    How can I be specific with the collapsable field, as it is now, the collapsed portion includes a field that I want to stand away from the collapse.
