    Any workaround to add products and a donation option?

    Any workaround to add products and a donation option?

    My form is for animal shelter and we have our "products" as the standard adoption fees.

    I'd also like to add the ability to include an additional donation amount.

    This is a re-post of a comment on PayPal Forms

    I have implemented a workaround before, but the donation type still comes as a product item. Check this form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40786078512964

    The donation section has a price of $1.00 then I hide the price value using custom CSS codes and adjust the box size using the same CSS method. So, if they enter 25 multiply by 1 equals 25, still.

    The box is custom quantity property which you can enable to a product item by following the guide here: How To Add Options In The Payment Form

    You can clone the form by following this guide: How to clone an existing form from a URL. You can check the custom CSS codes by following this guide: How to Inject Custom CSS Codes

    Thank you

    I am interested in cloning the form you created above.  However, I use Authorize.net and not Paypal. 

    1. Do I have to use PayPal in order to use this form?

    2. Do I have to use PayPal in order to allow user-entered donation amounts?

    3. If I cannot have both products and a user-entered donation amount field using Authorize.net, is there a way for me to have only a user-enetered donation amount field with Authorize.net?

    Thank you,
