    Is it possible to build a form that has different prices for different features and keeps a running total of these prices to display to the customer?

    It doesn't have to actually take payment, but it does need to email their choices to me.

    Hi, 

    Not entirely possible but you can do some alternative. Currently, you cannot do the 'total' part for now since jotform does not compute/totals field values except those setup in the Payment tools. If you go via the Payment tools, the sumbissions will still trigger a payment configurations for the user, which as you mentioned is not your preferred option.

    The closest alternative you can do instead is, just add the details of the product/features on your form (about features, prices. options, and so on) using those ordinary fields(textbox, dropdowns, labels). Then at end part, before submision button, just add a required numeric 'total' text box (if you really need a total field...), and force the user to put a numeric value as total for all the different features selected.

    If you setup the fields correctly in your form (example, prices are setup as required numeric fields, and also quantity), when this form is submitted, you can download it as Excel in the submission Reports, then you can actually 'total' all the prices and quantity in the report.

    I hope this helps you in anyway. Should you have further inquiry, please inform us.

    Thanks.
