    Is there a form for accepting payments that allows the person paying to enter any amount, as opposed to being limited to specific amounts on the form? This would be for services rendered, and the amount varies, so the forms with products that have specific prices set aren't appropriate. I prefer to use Stripe, but if there's a good form that'll suit my purposes, I'm open to using some other processor if necessary.

    Yes, that is possible. Just set it to "User defined amount", with your payment field so you can accept a custom amount.

    Hi,

    This would be for services rendered, and the amount varies, so the forms with products that have specific prices set aren't appropriate. 

    As per your requirement, you are offering services that don't have specific prices, correct? If you are changing the payment type to User Defined Amount all of the products will not be included inside the payment field. You can use any order form types, you would just not include the prices on your list of services then add a field wherein the user can input the suggested amount to pay. 

    So you would have to set up the list of your services outside the payment field, you can use multiple choice or single-choice fields for the list of products. Here's a detailed guide to assist you further: How-to-Pass-a-Calculation-to-a-Payment-Field
