    Can your PayPal be used (set-up) where a donation can be made to our Non-Profit targeted to a specific purpose using a dropdown menu?

    Asked by Joseph Rice on March 23, 2011 at 06:40 PM

    Can your Payment gateway (PayPal) be used (set-up) where a donation can be made to our (Animal Resue Non-Profit)targeted to  a specific purpose using a dropdown menu. When donor chooses from that dropdown selection, that users selection is propagated to the PayPal form specifically specifying what their donation will be targeted to?

    This specific donation feature is not currently featured on our donation page


    Thank you

    At the moment the donation option is possible for one target.

    This will also be a good idea if possible.  I will add this to the feature request lists.

    You can certainly add a dropdown field to your form to get users to choose where the donation should be used. I don't see a problem with that. Of course, you will have to keep track of the numbers manually. But you can get a nice report from JotForm and you will receive an email from JotForm specifying which option the user has choosen on the form. 

    Do you have separate PayPal accounts for these funds?
