Custom Payment

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm working on a payment process that requires a large variation of possible prices, so many that it makes creating different products and variants too difficult to manage. Each customer receives a contract with a calculated price prior to coming to the page to make a payment. What we are looking for is the ability to allow the customer to enter the price directly as stated in the contract - similar to a donation block - then pass that information to the paypal integration for payment. We considered using the donation bock, but that has tax implication and forces, or so it seems, donation verbiage into the process which can cause confusion. 

Any help is greatly appreciated. 

Thank you!

Squarespace isn’t a suitable platform for this requirement. You’ll need to embed a completely different payment method to be able to do this, whereas some other platforms allow variable payments.

Interestingly enough, I spent about an hour today fiddling around with my site attempting to do exactly what you said. My business offers services not products to purchase. Therefore, I send invoices to my clients that could be any random amount depending on the work being done. I wanted a simple way for clients to go to my website to pay their invoices. I also tried turning the “donation” block into a “payment” block, but as you mentioned it wouldn't work without causing other issues and confusion. I ended up doing a live-chat with Squarespace asking if there was anything I could do to set up a simple “make a payment” process and was advised they don’t have a way to do that. I find it odd this isn’t possible to do as it seems something simple that many businesses would use and that would require very little for Squarespace to implement. They could tweek the “donation” wording around and a few other things and there you go!

Does anyone know of a plugin or other workaround that will allow customers to enter their own payment amount? 

@TSTrip It isn't possible for customers to enter their own amount into the Squarespace payment processing with Stripe or PayPal, with or without code/plugins/extensions. For that you'll need to accept payments using a third party payment or form product.

To be clear, none of them will "integrate" with Squarespace but they can be linked from the Squarespace site and often embedded on it. One example is JotForm.
