Adjust the Form to Your Needs

Go to Form Elements and add the fields you need for your online order form. To add fields, just drag and drop them to the working area. For example, if you’re offering different product options, add a checkbox block to let your customers select the necessary features. Include dropdown blocks so that users could choose a city or country they’re ordering from. Add the date selector if you’re offering a delivery service. If you need to create a PayPal order form, add the PayPal field to collect payments. Don’t forget about a free text field for additional comments. After you add all the fields for your order form, place them in the correct order by dragging them around.

Once the structure is ready, open the Form Designer to bring some colors to your form. Choose from a variety of design themes to find the one that fits perfectly to your website’s color palette. Add a logo to your order form to visually connect the form with your website or even brand.

How to Make an Order Form Match Your Requirements

Now that you know how to make an order form for an online shop, we’ll tell you a bit more about the PayPal payment collection field. AidaForm offers flexible settings so you can easily adjust it to your business needs. Apart from adding a brief description and setting a currency, you can charge fixed amount, custom amount (set by a user) or offer a product selection. Let’s talk about each payment type in more detail.

Fixed Amount
This type of payment is useful if you’re selling the same-type items at a fixed price: fixed participation fee, fixed membership fee, one-size or one-color goods, etc. For instance, you’re organizing a cooking class. To register visitors, you can create a simple order form with a PayPal field and collect a fixed participation fee – just select the fixed amount option in the PayPal field settings and specify the amount you want people to pay.

Custom Amount
If you want to collect donations, sell gift certificates or simply let people choose how much they want to pay for your product or service, then use the custom amount option. This payment type gives customers an opportunity to pay any amount they like. To help people decide how much they should pay, you can set the suggested amount.

Product Selection
This payment type lets you set a specific price for each product option so that people could choose the one they are interested in. For example, if you’re selling different types of conference tickets, you can offer a 1-day ticket, 2-day ticket or 2-day ticket + workshop. Another example is selling t-shirts – let your customers choose size, color, design, etc. By the way, if you’re wondering how to create a shirt order form, you can use our t-shirt order form sample – it already includes such fields as color, size, design, quantity, etc. To collect payments for t-shirts, just use this template, add the PayPal field, and choose the product selection option in the field settings.
