    Having Trouble creating Custom Amount Donation using the Paypal Payment Tool in JotForm

    Asked by amyfoundationweb on November 02, 2015 at 08:07 AM

    Hi This is my form



    When you click on next on page 1, you go to the donations page. 


    The Total Donation amount (Connecting to paypal) should take its value from Donation Amount which is just above it. 

    At the moment this is what I see on Paypal Wizard. (See screenshot) there should be an option to select donation amount from whatever field on my form, Why is it not appearing?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I believe you'll need to use the form calculation widget to pass a custom value directly to the payment total in the payment integration. Please follow this guide instead: http://www.jotform.com/help/275-How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field.

    Do let us know if you need more information on this.
