    I have created a Donation form linking to PayPal but there are things I cannot do on the one form:

    In order to allow a choice of either a fixed amount for a one-off club subscription or a user-defined amount as a one-off donation, I had to use the "Products" option rather than the Donate option.

    On the same form how can I have a PayPal field for those who want to pay an annual or monthly subscription? The form allows only one PayPal field, and the PayPal field wizard forces a choice between Products and Subscriptions.

    Thanks for your help,

    Unfortunately, there is no direct way to add a custom amount to the products list in the payment form. However, a workaround can be adding another product with the price of $1 and add Quantity field to the product as a textbox.

    The form should be displaying the products as below.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to use both products and subscriptions or add two payment fields on the same form. However, you may create separate forms and embed them using Iframe embed widget. Please refer to the guide below that can help you with basic multiple payment method form.

    You may hide the sub-labels for the custom amount on the form by injecting some CSS code. Please let us know if this method works for you and make the changes to your form so that we can provide you with the CSS code to hide the labels.

    Thank you!
