    Trying to build a form with distance calculator

    Asked by eaguiar on July 29, 2016 at 06:19 AM

    I would like a form so my customers can order a transfer/taxi service. 


    I am trying to start with a template Purchase Order. There I try to add a payment method but it says there is already one. But i publish, make the order and no payment is requiered. 


    I would like to have a form with a few possible destinations (ideal would be point of departure and point of arrival, calculate km and have a price per km). But if not a couple of products like City-Airport go and return, City-Airport one way, City- South, City-North, In the city. 


    Each would have its price. User will select one and should have the possibility to pay by stripe, paypal or bank transfer. 


    Is that possible, i do not see the way.

    As far as I understand, you need the following:

    1. A distance calculator that also computes the amount due to be paid based on the distance calculated. You probably need our Driving Distance widget. I think it suits the requirements you have specified. Here is a demo form to show you how it works.

    Aside from that, there are similar existing templates that you can check and take advantage of. An example is this template.


    2. A multiple payment methods where user can choose to pay via PayPal, Credit Card, etc. You can check the guide on How to Create a Basic Multiple Payment form.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.
