    You can clone the form suggested by my colleague and keep the workaround intact.

    1. You can replace Paypal tool by Authorize.Net.

    - Simply, delete the current paypal field and make sure to Keep the current Products.

    - Then, add Authorize.Net and update your Authorize.Net account details. The products will be added automatically.

    - Make sure to enable the Total Property on the Payment Wizard.

    - You will probably need to update the CSS code as the selectors, fields IDs may change.

    - I cloned the form of my colelaghe and did the changes, here it is:

    All you need to do after cloning it is to add your credentials, and that's it.

    2. No, donation is available for all Payment tools offered in our Form Builder. You can read about it here: Order form types

    Please note that the workardound suggested by my colleague is to display products and a donation field at the same time. But we have a default Donation option in our Payment Wizard that you can select: 

    3. Yes, you can have just the donation option with our Donation feature shown in my screenshot above.
