Can I put in multiple checkbox items each having a price and then add selected items to a total?

    Cooks Choice:    (if check add $20.00 to total)
    Jackpot Beans:  (if checked add $20.00 to total)
    Chili:                  (if checked add $20.00 to total)

     

    The person completing the form can check 1 or 2 or 3.  The total is pre-loaded with a begining balance of $150 so each checkbox if completed would add an additional $20 each.

    Yes, our forms can do that, and you can set it up in three steps. First, we should assign calculation values to each of your Check Box items:

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

    In your case, simply enter a calculation value of 20 on several lines, each corresponding to one option in the Check Box field:

    Next step is that we will have to calculate the actual total from the selected items, and for this we will have to use a Form Calculation field:

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

    The calculation should be set to count "150 plus the value of the Check Box field".

    What I would also recommend in this step is to hide the calculation field - so that it doesn't cause any confusion to your users:

    And finally, third step is that we need to pass the calculated total to your payment tool for payment:

    You can see this demo form of the setup:

    If it works to your satisfaction, please follow the above described steps, and let us know should you run into any issues along the way. We'll be glad to help. Cheers
