Generate product price from base price + options (use for freshbooks and others)

  1. Gaslight

    Hi there,

    I'm trying to undestand how to correctly use the product and price fields

    Suppose I have a series of products; each product has a base price, then I would like to link a series of options to each of them, which would eventually alter the base price, by adding up cost.

    How to generate dynamically the total for each product (base price + options prices)?

    What if I want to retrieve these information:
    individual main product name + selected options + product total price (given by base price + option prices)

    and later use them, suppose in a freshbooks estimate or invoice? or other uses
    for example I could generate a description by main product name + selected options, then indicate the total price

    thank you

  2. Currently there is no Total output for each individual product. There is a Total field available under Pricing Fields that you can add to your form, however it only displays the Total for the entire form. It isn't for an individual product.

    But the Total field does display the total for all selected products and their options and quantity as well as the shipping field.

    Currently the FreshBooks Add-On does not support the Pricing Fields. It was introduced before the Pricing Fields existed. It is one of the major enhancements planned for the new feature release of the FreshBooks Add-On.

    Ah I see, but regardless of Freshbooks, is there any way to determine a total cost of a product inclusive of all the options? I'm not interested in grand total (all products with all their options altogether)

  4. I'm also having trouble trying to get my Line Items from GF to Freshbooks. Account info is moving over, but no Pricing Fields with pricing values are making it to Freshbooks. I've tried this a few different ways now, maybe over 90min of testing, but no pricing values make it to Freshbooks.

    I can't even get static Line Items to Freshbooks. What is the status of this functionality?
    Can you provide an example of how to get this working?

    This is one of the major reasons we purchased this DevLicense.
