    How do I add a dollar sign and decimals to a payment field using conditions calculate field option?

    Asked by fhpw on November 03, 2016 at 10:59 AM

    I have set up calculation fields to pass to a PayPal payment field with decimal places? I do not think I need a dollar sign because the unit is showing USD; correct?

    Two scenarios:

    When using the Payment Amount calculation wizard, decimal places are shown in the payment field.  

    When using conditional logic to add a late fee after a specific date, the calculation does not show decimal places.


    Is it possible to have the Total Amount look the same before and after the reservation deadline?
