How to Change Donation Default Amounts

We have a donate button that works great, but the checkout page lists donation amounts that we would like to change.  How do we change them?  Thank you!

Re: How to Change Donation Default Amounts

If you're getting the PayPal Donation Screen with fixed amounts being displayed, seems at the present, there's no way to edit those amounts.   (Maybe someone else has found a way.)   One optional work around is to manually create a Donation item button with the amounts you would like to offer.  For example, you could us radio buttons with the amount and also offer the option of any amount.  Note, the use of radio buttons can be done using a script or without a script.  Scripts are nice as you can pass additional details to the Check Out Screens.   (You could also create a drop down selection if that look is desired.)   For learning purposes, below is an example that uses a script to manage the radio button choice.
