List of products

In this tutorial, we are going to pretend we are a photographer and we want to create an online wedding photography price quote for our website. We offer those following services:

  • Photography (Duh!) with optional assistant
  • Wedding Web Site
  • Bridal Portrait Session
  • Book types (e.g size #1, size #2 and size #3)
  • Print ser types (e.g 1, 2, 3 and 4)

Building the calculator

Go ahead and click the "+" icon in the top right to see an overview of all the available elements for your calculator. Select the "Number" question by clicking on it or dragging it into the canvas. Now you need to:

  1. Change the title of the question to "Rehearsal duration".
  2. Display as: Incrementer.
  3. Set up "Minimum", "Maximum", "Default" and "Step".

After that, press "Done", and create one more "Number" question in the same way for "Wedding day duration".

Adding service options

After clicking "+", go to "Basic questions" and set up these two "List":

  1. Wedding book type
  2. Print set type

Configure both "Lists":

  • Display as: Multiple choice
  • Fill "Options" with types of books and print sets.
  • Complete "Value" with the price of each type.

Now let’s add a "Number" basic question to define the numbers of book pages:

  • "Title": How many pages?
  • "Display as": Range
  • Set up "Minimum", "Maximum", "Default" and "Step".
  • "Postfix": pages.

Adding extra services

As a wedding photographer, you can offer different extra products and services. To give the customer the possibility to choose, we will add "Yes / No" advanced questions. For example:

  • Do you need me to bring an assistant? (+$100)
  • Engagement Portrait Session (+$30)

You can add as many questions as you want and use the option "display us: checkbox".

Other questions

Ok, let's speed things up. You will need to create the following other questions to get the all needed information from your customer:

  • Date question ("When will be de wedding?")
  • Place question ("Where will be de wedding?")
  • Text question ("What's your name?")
  • Email question ("What's your email?)

Add a formula

We just need one formula in our calculator. Go ahead and add a formula to the bottom of the canvas, change the title to "Total price" and add "$" as the prefix.

The equation will sum every value, and questions who do not have value, we will add it in two variables to creates a clear syntax on the final formula.

References

  • QA: Rehearsal duration
  • QB: Wedding day duration
  • QC: Wedding book type
  • QD: How many pages?
  • QE: Print set type
  • QF: Do you need me to bring an assistant? (+$100)
  • QJ: Engagement Portrait Session (+$30)

Variable A

QF * 100 + QJ * 30

Variable B

QA * 75 + QB * 75 +QD * 5

After set variables, you are ready to set the formula, which will display the result of "Total price":

VA + VB + QC + QE

Creating the Call to Action

Ok, we are almost done! You need the customer to finish the quote, so we will create a call to action to request. Go ahead and add a "Button" (via "+") via "Elements". After that, fill out the following fields:

  1. "Button Text": Send request
  2. Toggle the switch: "Redirect to custom page after submission"
  3. "Custom Redirect url": Complete with any site you want.

Note: As regards calculator styling, this is possible by adding some "Elements" as containers or dividers. Besides, calculator settings provide more color and format options.

Congratulations, you made it! Now you and your customers will enjoy a joyful price quoting process using Convertcalculator.
