Donate buttons with suggested amounts on website

I've got some donate buttons that I created on my client's site — I would love for them to retain the look of this image provided. I've seen the idea for radio buttons, but honestly my client would shoot me if I made anything that looked like that.  How would I go about making a PayPal donation page work with this?  Thanks for your time!

Re: Donate buttons with suggested amounts on website

For learning purposes, I put together an example of what I was referring to - see the code below - it's basically 5 different Donate item buttons put together to look like one form.   As there's always more than one way to do something, here's just one example.   Note: Replace "business" value with your PayPal Email Address or your Merchant Account ID to test.

Re: Donate buttons with suggested amounts on website

Sorry, it looks like if you're logged out of paypal it isn't displaying the image...  so here's a google drive link to the screenshot

Re: Donate buttons with suggested amounts on website

What you have in mind is possible - one approach would be is to use basically use the same donation item button code behind the scenes for each graphic - the only difference would be amount.   For example, if you're offering 4 different amounts plus one that's custom, you would actually have 5 Donation Item buttons behind the scenes but all the donor sees is 5 options.   If you incorporate a table to arrange the graphic display and there's a separate donation button behind each graphic - there you go!   Note, you're just basically substituting your custom graphic in place of the PayPal donation graphic and lining them all up with a HTML table.
