The reason why the Total is not calculating is you aren't using Product Fields, you are only using Option Fields. Option Fields do not update the total and cannot be used by themselves. Option Fields update the price of a Product, which updates the Total. Options can't exist without a Product as they are designed to be Options for a Product.
For example, if you were selling a T-Shirt the T-Shirt would be a Product Field and the Size and Color would be implemented using Option Fields. Size and Color don't exist by themselves. They need the T-Shirt, the Product.
So you need to use the Product Field for Products and the Option Field for any options.
If you prefer to use Options you don't necessarily have to use Product Fields for everything. However, you need at least one Product Field on your form. Option Fields associate themselves with a Product Field. If you only have one Product Field on your form then any Option Fields automatically associate themselves with that Product Field. If you have multiple Product Fields on your form then you select which Product the Option is associated with as one of the options when editing the Option Field.
So the Product Field is what should be used as the primary pricing field. Options impact the price of a Product and the Quantity field impacts the Quantity of the Product and any of it's selected Options. The Total of any Product Fields and their associated Option Fields are then displayed using the Total Field.
