I want to design a gift certificate with a drop down for the amount or a blank space for the customer to fill in the amount.
I also do not want to charge shipping.

If you review the PayPal button code you will see that we are using "hidden" fields. You can change these fields to say "text" and text box will appear. You will also want to define the "size" of the box.

<input type="text" name="amount" value="" size="10">

As for shipping, you will need to use transaction-based shiping variables, and enable this in your PayPal account.

Include this in your code:

<input type="text" name="shipping" value="0.00">

and then go into your PayPal account to enable this option.

1. Login to your PayPal account
2. Click on the Profile subtab
3. Click on the Shipping Calculations link in the 'Selling Preferences' column
4. Click Edit
5. Check the second box near the bottom of the page that reads, 'Click here to allow transaction-based shipping values to override the profile shipping settings listed above'
6. Click Save
7. You have successfully updated your shipping preferences
