    How to automatically add the donation options to the PayPal field?

    Asked by alefcenter on September 06, 2016 at 03:40 PM

    When someone selects one of the donation's amounts, the amount is not automatically added to the "pay with paypal field. I would like to have the amount selected added to the paypal field automatically unless the person checks the box of paying with check by mail.
