Choosing the right button - Donate vs Pay Now

Our business is an event venue, so our customers would pay based on the total contract price which I email them separately.  I want to give them the option to pay on our website, but they need to be able to type in the amount on their contract (similar to the way a donation button acts).  I can't figure out how to have the button say Pay Now, but for the customer to be able to type in the amount they want to pay.

Re: Choosing the right button - Donate vs Pay Now

Hello richsidrip,

 

Welcome to the Forums.

 

There is a way to create a button to allow your customers to pay based on the total contract price when you email them each separately. You can create a Pay Now button and put 0.00 in the price box and continue with creating the button. This will allow your customer to click on the Pay Now button you created, put in their contract amount, click update on the order summary page and continue paying the contract.

 

To create the Pay Now button you would select customize text and appearance (in step one, when creating the button)and select Pay Now instead of Buy Now.

 

I hope this makes sense.
