fundraiser ticket with minimum amount

Hi - I don't see a way to sell tickets to a fundraising event where the minimum is $100 but we want people to also be able to type in more if they want to pay more. Am I missing something? Or, perhaps this is something that can be done with one of the paid PayPal accounts just not the free ones?

Thanks!

Dave

Re: fundraiser ticket with minimum amount

What you have in mind can be done however, the item button code has to be manually created.  You cannot create the type of function you want using the online button creator.  The online button creator just creates basic item button code.  As you want a minimum amount, this requires some custom scripting to manage the logic.

 

Just to give you an idea on how to approach what may work for you, check out the example below:

var maxamt = 40.00;
var minamt = 15.00;
function Dollar (val) {     // force to valid dollar amount
var str,pos,rnd=0;
  if (val < .995) rnd = 1;  // for old Netscape browsers
  str = escape (val*1.0 + 0.005001 + rnd);  // float, round, escape
  pos = str.indexOf (".");  // should be one, but OK if not
  if (pos > 0) str = str.substring (rnd, pos + 3);
  return str;               // return valid string
}

function ChkAmt (obj1) {  // check any qty limits on items
var amt,qty;
  amt = obj1.amount.value;
  qty = obj1.quantity.value;
  
  amt = amt*1 * qty*1;
  
  if (amt > maxamt) {
    alert ("You cannot order more than $" + Dollar(maxamt));
    ClrAmt ();
    return false;
  }
  
  
  if (amt < minamt*1) {
    alert ("You must order at least $" + Dollar( minamt));
    ClrAmt ();
    return false;
  }
  ClrAmt ();
  return true;
