Specific Product Field to be displayed as amount to be paid via Paypal

    Here's the form:
    http://en.ecoledehockeydelacapitale.com/registration/2013-registration-form/

    When I redirected to Paypal, it shows all the products and total all, but what I need is just the "Total Deposit via Paypal" amount. How can I do that?

  2. I'll ask the development team this question for you.

    Thanks Chris. I'll wait. I actually submitted a ticket but the support gave me sarcastic answer without checking how the form works.

    I'll wait for your response. :)

  4. I"m sorry you found my response sarcastic, it wasn't meant to be sarcastic at all. So we are a bit perplexed by that. At any rate, I responded to your priority support request this morning with:

    What I would recommend is possibly using Number fields for all of your current product fields that you don't want to actually take into account/be involved with PayPal. You can then format those to look like currency using this: http://gravitywiz.com/format-field-as-currency/

    Then you can use a single calculated product field to show the deposit amount required to pay via PayPal.

    And yes, I did look at your form...

    How can I make computations there then?
    I have Sub-Total, VAT (GST & QST), Price of Jersey which is non-vattable, Total Cost, Deposit which depends on the total cost and Paypal deposit amt.

    So I need a way to just make the Paypal deposit amount to show. Just that one.

  6. Is Rob's suggestion to use number fields, rather than product fields, workable for you?

    No it isn't.

  8. Can you explain why this workaround won't work for you? Maybe we can come up with something else that will work within your constraints and the features of Gravity Forms.

    You may require some assistance to configure your forms to work in your specific circumstance then. We have a job board where you can post a job, or you can find help on any of the WordPress-specific job boards, such as jobs.wordpress.net.

    Pls check http://en.ecoledehockeydelacapitale.com/registration/2013-registration-form/

    Plans = Option Fields (with Tax) - price depends on what plan
    Jersey = Product Field (no Tax) - $50

    Then after that is the Cost of Registration
    Subtotal : for plans only
    GST : Subtotal + 5%
    QST : Subtotal + 9.975%
    Price of Jersey : 0 or $50
    Total : all costs
    Deposit : 50% of total cost
    Paypal deposit : deposit + 3%

    You think I can do that with number field?

  10. Gravity Forms was never intended to be a shopping cart or e-commerce solution. That said, you can manipulate the price that is sent to PayPal using the procedure described here: http://gravity.chrishajer.com/wp-content/uploads/gravity_forms/gfdocs-add-tax.rtf

    This approach was removed from our documentation (which was located here) once calculations were added to Gravity Forms in 1.6.4, but your case may be more complex than the calculation fields allow, in which case you may need to use this approach. However, we can't support the customization in these support forums.
