Pay your rent form

  1. Hi,

    I am setting a "Pay your rent" form on our website to enable our tenants to pay their monthly rent through our website.
    I would like to have a price input field and not a dropdown list of prices since rent changes between properties and season.
    Based on that entry I'd like to process calculation of 4% and then display the total.
    How do I do that?

    Thanks you in advance for your help.

    I need you to clarify things for me a bit more before any suggestions are made. You want users to be able to type in any value into a field to set the price they are going to pay? Then you would like to add 4%?

  3. That's right.

    And are you expecting it to be passed to a payment system like Paypal? If not, then you can use an input field and a calculation field to do what you want. If so, then you will need to use a product field with a user defined price and a product field with a calculation to do what you want.

  5. Thank you. I did that and everything works perfect.
    Except when I click on submit button.
    What happens then is that it gives me the error notification to fill in the required input boxes. but then my calculated formula doesn't work.

    I can't currently see your form, as it is for logged in users only. What error do you get? Which method did you go with?

  7. Sorry about that. I just removed the user login requirement .
    try now.

    my formula is:
    processing fee (product price)
    {rent prince:5} * 5 /100

    I don't seem to be having any issues. Can you walk me through exactly what I need to do to see the issue you are currently experiencing?

  9. Sure.

    The calculating formula is working perfectly fine if the user is typing all the information down on the first go.
    But upon Error notification the formula doesn't work any more.
    Please try to make payment without filling in one or two required fields. then try to put in a type in $4000 in the month's rent price box. you will see that it does not calculate the 5% on top of that.
    Also somehow it "remembers" the previous 5% before from the first "make payment" tryout.
