    Why is there only one item option for Donation payments?

    Asked by on July 21, 2010 at 03:44 PM

    We have several Donation types or levels and the current set-up on the payment form (*I'm using the PayPal Pro option) does not allow for this - only lets me enter one type or option for Donation.  If I use the multiple product option, then the payment is not flagged as a donation via PayPal, and will create more work on our accounting end - is there any way to give radio button options within the Payment API for Donations?

    Donation is usually something the user enters. So, I am not sure how having multiple options would help? Will you have suggested donation options?

    Is there a way to add an "Other" option where they can enter their own amount?

    Unfortunately, there's no option for that. But please take a look at this thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/142631-Donation-form-with-Other-that-can-be-filled-in-by-hand-and-recurring-donations, I have responded you there for possible workarounds.
