Price Field

A Price Field collects payment for a charge that is either a fixed amount or calculated using other information on your form. For example, if you're selling tickets to an event, you can either set a fixed price of $10 for every form entry, or you can allow users to buy additional tickets by multiplying the price ($10) by the number of tickets they'd like to purchase. See more about Setting Up Payment.

The Price field always collects payment, so it will automatically prompt you to connect with PayPal or Stripe, if you haven’t already done so. 

Label

The label will display as the title of the field or the question that is being asked on the form. It is not recommended to leave the label blank because the label will be used as the column heading in Excel when form entries are exported.

Amount

Set the amount you would like to charge. The amount can always be the same value or can change based on certain conditions such as a selected value of another field on the form. To set a changing or calculated amount, click the lightening bolt icon to open the Conditional Logic Builder.

 

Item Name

Set the item name as you would like it to will appear on the user’s receipt. These can be fixed labels, or you can use calculations to pull data from other fields.

Item Description

Set the item description as you would like it to appear on the user’s receipt. These can be fixed labels, or you can use calculations to pull data from other fields.

Help Text

Help text can be used to assist the user by providing additional instructions. Help text will display directly under the field.

Ranges can be specified to require the user to enter a value between the minimum and maximum values that you set for the field.
