    Flexible PayPal pricing allowing the custom donations to be entered

    Asked by ianlowe on January 08, 2015 at 03:30 PM

    We are a charitable organisation looking to use Jot forms to sell a service to customers. We want to be able to allow customers to choose, perhaps within limits, how much they pay because all the money goes to help the charity.

    I have worked out that I can dd the same product multiple times, each with a different price, and then let the customers pick which of the prices they want to. This works, however, it lacks flexibility and fineness as we have to have a large list of the same product.

    I have also tried a single product with a base price and a second PayPal element with a Donation option and leaving the price off in the hope it would allow the customer to select one. However, as I am sure you realise, neither of these worked.


    Can you suggest some solution to this requirement?

    Hi Ian,

    I see that this seems similar to the other thread you had opened to which I have already replied, found here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/492556

    I would like to suggest the same as on that thread and that would be to check out this guide:

    How to pass a calculation to a payment field

    This would allow you to fine-tune the amount and allow your visitors to add any amount that they would like in the the way that best matches your preferences.

    Since you have given more details here, please lets keep the conversation on this thread only so that we can properly assist you.

    Best Regards,
