    According to your details above you seem to be having some problems with getting your paypal payment field to properly get a calculated amount to charge buyers of the raffle fundraiser.

    Upon inspection of this problem I found the screenshot you have seems quite a bit different though it essentially the same thing.

    When I tested this I am seeing the cost pulled into the paypal field from your calculation on my end.

    Were you able to get this working or are you still having trouble with it?

    If you are still having any trouble with it then I would highly recommend referring to the following guides below which should help you alot more with doing so:
