C5 developer needed for ecommerce modification : create donation amount

Permalink 1 user found helpful

For a charity I have the ecommerce addon installed on a which enables people to pay donations for fixed amounts.
I need to have someone tweak in the ecommerce addon so that we can also accept any donation, ie the donor would enter themselves the amount they choose instead of selecting a specific amount already present in the system.
This is an urgent job and I have no one available to do it at the moment.

I believe that you can actually already do this. i.e. put any amount in for a product (no fixed price)

ThemeGuru, you are right, thanks for pointing this out. It's a bit cumbersome but here's the way to do it :

1. Create the "donation" product in admin dashboard.
2. Go to "Customer Choices"
3. Add new product option -> "Text - Product Price"
4. Input handle, name and default value. For example:

Handle: donation_amount
Name: Amount to donate
Default value: 10.00

5. Save the attribute and set the product price to 0 (or to any minimal amount you want).

A customer will be able to input the donation amount and pay for it.

Which add on is being used for this?
Are you talking about donating via just paypal or CCs?
