    Paypal Donation: Allow decimal amounts

    Asked by mgcaledonian13 on December 28, 2013 at 06:01 PM

    Hi there

    I have set and subsequently deleted a PayPal field with the wizard so that I can research and check the form notifications. I noticed that the "amount" field only accepts Whole Numbers (pounds GBP), I am using the "donations setup". The other Setups allow, I think Whole pounds and pence (£60.50), but the other setups only allow repeat payments. I am wanting a one off payment that is why I opted for "donations setup". Is there a way of stting up the amount other than whole pounds (GBP)?

    Have you tried testing your form live? I have tried it here, and I am able to submit amounts with decimal.


    Is this what you are referring about? If I've misunderstood your question, feel free to let us know.

    Oh dear that must have been the dumbist question ever asked of you guys. :-(

    A total waste of your time I do apologise. first of all it was the suggested amount in the form build I was trying to change second if I had looked closer at the others I would have seen what I was looking for.

    I do apologise for the time wasting. :-(

    No worries.

    Let me also brought that issue to our developers attention. I guess the donation default value should allow decimals. Cheers! =)
