    Asked by cindyadminmva on September 16, 2014 at 12:46 AM

    There's no direct solution for that but there's a workaround.

    You just have to add a separate product with a base price 1, then name it e.g. "Custom Amount" and add Custom Quantity (Text Box) in it. So whenever the user enters custom amount of  e.g. 25, it will be added to the total amount.

    Here's a visual guide:

    Then add Custom Quantity (Text Box).



    Note that I have injected CSS codes to this form so the check box in the custom amount product will not be shown. If you need help formatting your custom amount this way, let us know so we can assist you.
