    How can I set a minimum donation amount?

    Asked by NYCapitalRadio on November 24, 2014 at 10:57 AM

    I have a form which I need to collect a custom amount of money, but I need to place a minimum on how small the contribution can be. Please update that payment field so that it allows for that option.

    Hello NYCapitalRadio,

    Do you actually want to validate the input donation amount and ensure that the amount is not less than a certain amount?

    You can show a pre-populated amount in the donation box of your payment question by setting the "Suggested Amount". Please check the screenshot below:

    Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to set the minimum donation amount in the payment questions. I did try some workaround but was not able to make it work.

    Let me send a feature request to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!
