    Do you mean to say that the products configured using inventory widget to be passed to PayPal? Unfortunately, it is not possible since the products are configured out of the PayPal wizard. It is required to configure the products from the PayPal wizard in order to get the products displayed in the PayPal. If you want to use the inventory widget, the total cost can be calculated using the calculation widget and passed to PayPal.

    Please refer to the guide below:

    Hope this information helps!

    When I check your form I think that you do not actually need to use Inventory Widget in order to list your products. Settings of PayPal are more than enough to match your needs. 

    Please see how to specify the quantity or size of your products:

    1. Open your PayPal payment wizard and click "Create New Product" on the side window:



    When you start creating, firstly you determine the name and price of your product. And then you can specify its quantity and available size:


    When you click the add quantity you can specify the available number of the item. When you click add option:

    Please choose the T-shirt size option first and then change the label to "Size":

    Here is how it looks like when you are done:

    You can apply the very same steps in order add your add products to the list. Using inventory widget and calculating its field with Form Calculator is not possible and it is a much harder option than this. What is more, you will not need the amount to be calculated by you. It will be done automatically in the wizard.  

    Please check this and let us know if this is what you are looking for.

    Do contact us whenever you need assistance. We will be glad to be helping you.
