    how to get straight to paypal

    Asked by theglassslipper on November 02, 2012 at 08:36 AM

    I need to see if there is a way for my customers to be directed to paypal when the application is complete. I have a beauty pageant system so I don't know ecaxtly what categories the customer will be entering. Nor do I know how much they will pay. So I can;t use the paypal format that you click and it adds it together for you. I need to know is there a way that my customers can be directed directly to paypal when the application is completed and would be able to put in the dollar amount they are paying.

    It seems you can only achieve the concept you have on your form by:

    1. Using the form's source code and embed it in our own website.

    2. At least establish a mandatory minimum 'base package/amount'.. i.e. like the $85 in your form. You will have to come up with this because you wanted to force the participant to at least pay something just for joining.

    You can read a similar idea from this topic, specifically take note of Abajan's suggested work around. This was the demo form.

    Since there will be a mandatory package, the submission will always go to Paypal with an amount.

    You can then just apply some rules for the other options and package, like, if the ultimate supreme package deal is selected, the other package should be free or omitted.

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you have further inquiry.
