Forms: Pricing Fields
VNN Playbook - Forms: Pricing Fields
If you are planning on allowing payment processing on your form you will need to have Paypal setup in order to use the pricing fields. To connect paypal to your forms please reach out to support at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can connect your paypal account to the form so that users can then submit payment with their form submissions.
When adding payment processing to a form you must always have a 'product' field on the form for the user to select their purchase, and you must also always add a 'total' field to the form at the bottom so that the user understands their total before proceeding to payment.
Product: Entering a product allows the end user to choose a quantity for the product they are purchasing. You can change the name of the product in the field label box and the cost in the price field.
You can also change the way the product appears to the user, i.e. check boxes or bubbles etc. using the field type menu and selecting an option from the list. The option 'single product' allows the user to select a quantity of the same product on one form instead of filling out multiple forms.
Option: The option field allows your end user to choose between a number of different products. For example, a t-shirt, sweater, or hat. The products need to be created for the t-shirt, sweater and hat and then the option is created for different sizes.
Total: The total field will add up all of the prices from the products chosen by the end use and provide them the total. This is necessary for all forms using products. Upon submitting the form the end user will be redirected to Paypal to make a payment.
Tip: It is helpful to add a description informing the user that they will be redirected to paypal to complete payment at this point.
Quantity, Shipping, and Credit Card are not applicable on our version of wordpress/gravity forms.
