    PayPal settings calculation

    Asked by EastEndSeaportMuseum on March 15, 2017 at 01:13 PM


    My PayPal integration the "GET PRICE FROM" only shows "None (Manual)" and nothing in the dropdown.

    I'm trying to have the value from "Donation Amount" appear in the payment field.

    What am I missing?

    I figured it out.  

    You need to have the Field Calculator grab the value.

    Then so it doesn't look redundant with the number showing you make it a hidden field.

    Is that the right way, or did I miss something else ?

    Glad to hear that. Thank you for updating us.

    Using the Form Calculation widget is the correct way of passing a value to the payment field.
