    Paypal - delivery

    Asked by RHemery on September 16, 2016 at 09:22 AM

    Hi there

    I have a form:

    https://www.jotformpro.com/form/62594116125958 but I'm struggling with the delivery options as it looks quite limited within the wizard...?

    Basically the delivery costs are dependent on the value of the vouchers purchased - and there's an optional higher price to get secured delivery.  How would I go about doing this on JotForm?


    How much is delivery?
    Delivery costs depend on the amount of vouchers you're purchasing...

    - 90p for First Class delivery (up to £50)
    - £1.90 for First Class Signed For delivery (optional up to £50, this is the minimum for £50-£100)
    - 6.50 for Royal Mail Special Delivery (optional for all deliveries, compulsory for orders over £100)

    I am not quite sure if I understood it correctly. So far the payment integration is based on the options that the Paypal API allows. 

    So far, what we have in the wizard is the "Shipping" fees:


    If you are looking for a function that sets shipping fee depending on the delivery options, then it may not be possible on the default wizard.

    However, if you want to have a more complex way to calculate fees depending on some options, then I would suggest recreate the products using the default form fields and using the form calculation widget and/or the conditional logic for the complex fees. 


    Now I am not sure how you would like to present the "Delivery Options" as it seems like you might encounter a confusion or conflict with regards to compulsory and by basing it on the amount. 

    But this should be possible (I think). Here are the guides that will help you:

    1. To assign calculation values on your input fields like check boxes, radio buttons and drop down list, you can check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value 

    2. To show/hide fields, make calculations, insert text or assign values on other input fields, you can use conditional logic: https://www.jotform.com/help/57-Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic 

    3. To have a direct calculation, you can use the Form Calculation widget: https://www.jotform.com/help/259-How-to-Perform-Calculation-in-the-Form 

    4. Now after that, you can pass the total calculation value to your payment integration, here's how: https://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field 


    Using those guide, you should be able to create a complex calculation on your fees and pricing.

    I hope that helps.
