    Can I set a user defined amount for Paypal?

    Asked by calvin_c7 on December 08, 2016 at 03:25 PM

    Is there a template or way for us to allow users to put in the dollar amount they want to pay via Paypal? Or do those field prices have to be decided to calculate correctly? Ideally, we want a simple form where users can put in the amount they want to pay us and then can just send that amount to our paypal account.

    There is a way to get a user defined amount for your form. Just change the Payment Type from Sell Products to User Defined Amount.

    To do that, click your Paypal Payment field > click the WAND icon to open the wizard > then change the PAYMENT TYPE to USER DEFINED AMOUNT:
