    Hi. I'd like to take this form but add options for donations per each student on the form (for example: donate $50 for student 1, $50 for student 2, etc) and then total them at the bottom. Is this possible?

    Yes, that's possible. What you can do is pass the total value from the donation fields for student 1, student 2 etc. into your final donation field for checkout.

    Thank you. However we want to use PayPal Checkout to accept payments for the total donation amount. How do I do that?

    Hi,

    It can be done.

    (1) Set Payment Type to User Defined Amount
