    Optional donation along with Paypal payment

    Asked by wcsikhicamp on September 03, 2015 at 08:18 PM



    I have a paypal payment field in my form, which is mandatory.  Along with that, I want to have an optional field for people to type in a donation amount.  When someone clicks on submit, form should sum both values and proceed to Paypal checkout.

    How can I accomplish this?

    To do normal payment and donation in the same form, you need 2 paypal payment tool. Unfortunately, you can't add more than one payment tool in one form.

    In a nutshell, Donation and normal payment can't calculate together. Donation needs to be in a different form, if you want to have one.
