Using the cart to accept donations

Using options and conditional options I can lay out a productDetail that looks like your average donations page where you can choose from a list of optional $ donation levels or fill in your own dollar amount.
What I can't figure out is how do I get PS4 to see those fields as dollars and all that that entails?

Will be using PayPal Pro
Also the client wants the contributor to have the ability to write in the amount the wish to donate.

Power Store will not allow for the user to enter the amount they wish to donate, you would need to use eCart to create this type of a donation system

Each option in Power Store is treated as a separate product, for each option that they can select, you can set a different price, So for the $10 donation option, set the price to $10.

Power store will not support this, this is not a supported feature of PowerStore.


you will need to use eCart to create the shopping and checkout experience for this outside of PowerStore.

Donation only (no products)

I want to use eCart5 to create a simple, user friendly donation form.

The only fields I would need (apart from the Credit Card info) would be the donation amount, email, comment, and acknowledgment option.
Payment processing will be through First Data.

I would like the process to be as simple as possible for the user:
Just have them fill in one form (like the checkout form but also able to add their donation amount and the other fields mentioned above) then just process the form without the confirmation page.

Is this possible? I have looked in the forum for answers and checked the online documentation, but I can't figure out how to add the donation amount field to the checkout form without having a previous page that adds it as a session value.

Also can't figure out how to bypass the confirm page.

Thanks in advance.

it would be better to use the Payment Buttons for paypal to accomplish this than use ecart:

?lid=free?


using eCart for this project is a bit like using a sledgehammer to hang a picture

If only it was that simple!

Both my client and I are in Bermuda, PayPal doesn't allow a Bermudian company to have a merchant account.

I suppose I can get First Data to process the form but I don't see how to capture the input (minus credit details) into my database if/when the process was complete.

Do you think using sessions to store the info I want to keep and only add it to the database when redirected to the success page would work.

yes, that would be the best way to configure it, on submit of the checkout form, store the form data to session variables, then process the transaction through first data, on the success page, store the session variable data into the database.
