Features of Order Forms
Order forms share many traits with registration forms, like contact info and option selections. They are unique in that they contain pricing calculations and often payment transactions.
Formsite has specialty form items designed for making order forms easy and accurate:
- Pricing items are items where the form owner sets the cost for each choice or answer.
- Quantity items multiply the price to allow for ordering more than one of each choice.
- The Text Field Quantity needs to appear immediately before a pricing item to multiply the price correctly.
- The Quantity List item combines the quantity + pricing items and offers an efficient list of choices.
- Percent items add or deduct a percentage, as with tax, shipping, or a discount.
- The Coupon Code item deducts an amount from the order total when the visitor enters a valid code.
- The Running Total item shows the current order total.
All forms containing order form items will automatically display the Order Review page after the last page of the form. See a previous article for how to customize the Order Review page and other tips.
Another common request when building order forms is to limit the number available. Many products or tickets need to limit the quantity available, which Formsite’s Inventory settings allow.
The Inventory features help to prevent over-selling by setting the total number of answers allowed for a specific form item. Once the Results Table contains the set number of results for that answer, the form prevents more orders.
