    How to change the PayPal receipt form Donation to Payment received

    Asked by MTPhoto on May 31, 2015 at 07:17 PM

    I have an online order form developed with payments made through PayPal. The PayPal receipt shows a "donation" was made and not a payment. How do I fix this?

    It seems that you have selected the option in the Payment Tool Wizard that your payments are donations. Please try clearing the checkbox which says:

    This is a donation. We are a non-profit organization.

    You can get to this window by editing your form, and at the bottom of the screen clicking on the Cart total field, then on the small wand-shaped icon.

    Please let us know how it goes.
