    New client, create forms for a payment where the amount can be filled in

    Asked by Stacey Barrett  on March 08, 2016 at 06:12 PM

    Hi, I represent a small non-profit.  I'm exploring various form builders to enhance our online donation capabilities.  One obstacle I'm up against is building a form that allows the user/donor to "write-in" what their donation in addition to choices.  We're set-up with paypal to take the payment.  Can Jotform accommodate our needs?

    Just to clarify, from what I understand, you have a list of specific donations and you would like, in addition to that list, there is a way for the donator to put in the amount they want to donate, is that correct?

    Can you check if this is somehow the form that you're trying to build?

    Please feel free to clone it to examine the details of the form.

    By the way, here are some of the guides that you may refer to in creating such.

    How-to-pass-a-calculation-to-a-payment-field

    I hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to get back to us if you have any follow-up questions from any of the guides and/or form above.

    Thank you.
