Custom Math

Everything to know about this feature

How It Works

The Custom Math feature is great to add custom math to affect the total cost in scenarios that aren’t related to what the user (customer) wants. An example could be shipping cost, no matter what the customer wants, they will need to base shipping costs. Currently, it’s triggered automatically on each calculator load.

Note: This feature works at the sub-section level. Which gives you greater control.

Convert To Monthly Pricing

Create a base price for your product or service. Base Price: The most fundamental cost of a good or service to a consumer that does not include common extra fees. In addition to the base price of a product, fees that raise the overall price to buyers are often assessed by sellers for such things as sales tax, shipping charges and extra equipment or supply options.

Convert To Monthly Pricing

If your pricing is set up to show the yearly pricing, but you want to convert it a monthly cost in the front-end, then you can add “Divide by 12” to give the monthly price.

Shipping Cost

If you charge a base fee for shipping, you can use this feature to show that.
