We want to offer the possibility of making a one-time donation via Paypal.
In addition, we would also like to offer the possibility of making monthly donations. Unfortunately Paypal does not allow for regular donations in the "Donations" file. Instead, you have to create these buttons in the "Subscriptions and Recurring Payments" file. The problem here, however, is that you have to define a fixed amount and a fixed time-period in order to create these buttons.

We would, however, like the donor to be able to freely choose and enter the amount and time-frame of the monthly donation.

Will Paypal soon be able to offer this possibility? We don't understand why it doesn't already offer it in the area of donations. After all, under one-time donations you can enter any amount you like.

Thank you.
Kind regards

I would like to add a hearty second to that suggestion. It is exactly what we are looking for for our church website.

We only got round this problem by defining 4 suggested recurring times/amounts and forcing our donors to choose one of those 4. Took up more space on the donate page of course.

You can accomplish this using just about any scripting language if anyone needs help on this still Contact me... There is no need for multiple buttons

Hello,

"We would, however, like the donor to be able to freely choose and enter the amount and time-frame of the monthly donation.
"

This could also be done with text input types for the amount (a3) and a text field for the time frame (p3) and a pull down for the incrament (t3).
