Donation

  1. Hi guys. i'm having issues with the donation collecting the first donation instead of waiting until the next billing cycle (every month). But i'm having errors when submit the other amount.

    Lets setup the scenario
    1. Create a donation amount $30, $50, other
    2. Have other show a user defined amount
    3. Create two feeds for the donation and other amount
    3a. Set both feed with the recurring amount set to the form total
    3b. For each feed set the "setup fee", one for the donation amount and the other for other.
    4. Test the form for both feeds

    The donation amount errors and the form doesn't get submitted. The other amount works.

    The only way i can see this work, is if the setup fee uses the "form total" instead of the donation or other amount. That way its just one feed versus 2.

    I guess my work around is using jQuery and try to get the donation amount field to be populated dynamically.

    Does anyone have a better solution than this?

    Just to be clear, the issue you are having is that the set-up fee is being collected right away? Is the set-up fee the same as the donation total or different? I guess I need more information to try to understand what you are trying to do...

  3. No, i don't think the setup fee is the issue. It seems more like the the setup fee and reoccurring amount. The donation could be different, it could be the donation amount (fix amount) or the other donation amount (user set amount).

    Either way, setup two feeds. First one, use the donation amount as the setup fee and recurring amount. Second one, use the other donation amount as the setup fee and recurring amount.

    If you submit the form, it will error out, even if the for is filled out correctly.

    Sorry forgot to mention i'm using the paypal pro plugin.
