I am looking for a simple way to give my donors 2 choices:
1- One time gift of 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 75, 100, 250, 500, 1000 OR
2- Monthly Gift of 10, 15, 20, 25, 50, 75, 100, 150, 200, 250

Any help would be great. Email tellray@canada.com on behalf of 100tipis.com if you have more questions. Thank you!

When creating the Donation button, if you leave the "amount" blank this will create a button where the buyer can fill in the amount. The Donation applies to one-time "purchases", however, and will not apply to the recurring (subscription) feature.

Javascript to the rescue!

For the first half anyway.

Create a drop down menu. Each field is a value that you listed.

<select value="25">$25.00
<select value="50">$50.00
<select value="75">$75.00

Then use a small script to have it change the value of the donate button's "value" field to the desired value.

This will only work for single donations though.
I don't think there is yet a subscription system for donations.

If you need help writing the script, it is very simple (if you know Javascript), and I'd be glad to help out.

The first button you are referring to is a simple donation button. The second button would be of subscription type.

Use a drop down for the amount.

One-time:

<form method="post" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="payment@mysite.com">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Donation">
<select name="amount">
<option value="50">50
<option value="100">100
<option value="250">250
<option value="500">500
</select>
<input type=submit value=Contribute>
</form>

Recurring:

<form method="post" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr">
<select name="amount">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick-subscriptions">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="payment@mysite.com">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Donation">
<input type="hidden" name="p3" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="t3" value="M">
<select name="a3">
<option value="50">50
<option value="100">100
<option value="250">250
<option value="500">500
</select>
<input type=submit value=Contribute>
</form>

Patrick, when I tried your form, I got what I wanted with one exception:

I got a blank drop down menu with no values in it on the left, then the drop down menu with the amounts in the ranges, I specified, and then the contribute button.

I clicked on Contribute it and set up a page for the amount I'd chosen for just 1 month. I'm sure I need to put some values in that first (blank) drop down menu, but I'm not understanding where I need to do so.

I'm not a developer, so please forgive my need for "explanations for dummies!"

Thanks!

Oops!!! looks like there was a stray line in there, and maybe one or two missing :) Try this for the recurring button:

<form method="post" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr">
<input type="hidden" name="t3" value="M">
<input type="hidden" name="p3" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Donation">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="payment@mysite.com">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick-subscriptions"> Select
your contribution: <select name="a3">
<option value="50">$50
<option value="100">$100
<option value="250">$250
<option value="500">$500
</select>
<input type="hidden" name="src" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="sra" value="1">
<input type="submit" value="Contribute">
</form>


Using this button is

That worked. Thanks, Patricia. :)

Now on to the next step. Is there a way to give a donor an option to set the amount themselves, then pick from a range of choices for reoccurrence?

Example: Donor fills in dollar amount, then picks from monthly, quarterly, or annually.

Thanks again!
Valerie

Patricia - when I used the coding you supplied for payment options, I tried to change the wording "Contribute" to "Pay Now" and added some extra payment options. However, when I copied and pasted to the website, it drops the "Pay Now" text and the Submit text reverts to "Submit Query". Do you know why this is happening?
